Paint and Coating Failure Analysis & Expert Witness

Well if the worst has happened and you have only found RAP’s services now, we will pool our experience to help you find a remedy. With decades of experience working across the paint and coating inspection industry, we have the knowledge to analyse your project and identify exactly where things went wrong.

Failure analysis generally means your organisation needs to identify the root cause of a failure in order to assign liability to whoever was responsible for that portion of the works. Using failure mode and effect analysis, our team can pin-point exactly what went wrong where, and who was at fault.

Our Failure Analysis Process

Included in their free initial consultation RAP will assess your grievance and advise if there is a simple solution or otherwise provide you a proposal for further evaluation, including;

  1. Site inspection & preliminary investigation.
  2. Review the original coating project documentation & contract data.
  3. Evaluate any available data from the original coating project quality documentation.
  4. Collect samples & perform coating film laboratory testing.
  5. Identify root cause and report on contributing factors.
  6. Assist in any dispute resolution proceedings that ensue.
  7. Provide expert witness testimony during any subsequent court proceedings.


Alternatively, the team at RAP will advise if they can find a “remedy” that can meet your objectives and discuss possible dispute resolution options with the parties involved.
