Surface resistance measurement


This test measures the electrical surface resistance/conductivity of (coated) surfaces in order to prevent e.g. electrostatic discharge. This test is often performed to evaluate anti-static coatings.

Can be applied to:

Coatings, plastics, composites, material surfaces


Test method standard:



Test procedure:

The measurements take place via a parallel bridge according to the ASTM D257 standard.

The sample surfaces must be flat enough to enable performance of a correct measurement. A minimum surface area of 100 x 100 mm is required.

Lead time:

5 business days


All tests – composites – metals – plastics – coatings – adhesives – 3D prints
