Dust Test KitPaul N. Gardner USA’s newest offering is the TQC Dust Test Kit that allows assessment of the quantity and size of dust particles on surfaces prepared for painting. Dust on blast cleaned surfaces can reduce coating adhesion, leading to premature coating failure and sub-standard coating finish. The dust test kit can be used in accordance with the recommendations of BS EN ISO 8502-3 either as a pass/fail test or as a permanent record of the presence of dust.


  • A strong binder holds all necessary forms and visual comparator and has an integrated compartment for tape, scissors and illuminated magnifier.
  • Report Forms have space for five different test results. All the information that the ISO8502-3 standard requires can be filled in through check boxes or in pre-defined areas. This guarantees complete and valid reports.
  • Display board clearly shows the different quantity ratings but also has a unique size-comparator for both light and dark dust particles. A black and white contrast files is included as well.
  • The pictorial manual shows the test method in a clear way and can be used in any “language”. The Sample Transfer sheet is made of scratch resistant, high transparent plastic with pre-printed positions. It is conveniently fixed by a Velcro strip for easy detachment and replacement.
  • The strong binder is suitable for field use. It holds all forms and accessories and is locked by a Velcro strip to secure the content.
  • The illuminated magnifier has real glass optics for a clear view (no plastic lenses).
