Excellent paint systems don’t just happen… they evolve from sound engineering, bright ideas, and a lot of preparation. For Nutro, there is no substitute for laboratory testing. Proving a process in the lab eliminates guesswork and reduces costly mistakes in the plant.
Nutro lab technicians wear many hats but all have a common goal: eliminate the risk that the process won’t work as well as it possibly can.
For customers with limited laboratory capabilities who want to independently develop a painting curing or material-handlings process, our state of the art lab provides engineered solutions to specific finishing needs. Our lab is an excellent resource for process development, process verification, pre-production testing, and research development.
The key to a successful finishing line begins with developing a process that works reliably. That’s why Nutro has invested heavily in a process development laboratory with the capability of replicating your production process. This commitment includes the installlation of a pilot scale plant facility that has the ability to coat a wide range of different customer parts.
