About StressKote

Brittle coat testing with StressKote, a new formulation of Stresscoat brittle coating, is one of the most straightforward and effective methods of experimental stress analysis used to improve product design. It locates critically stressed areas and visually presents principal strain directions, as well as information on the strain gradients – all of which are needed for the proper selection, location and orientation of strain gages for accurate measurement of peak stresses.


Brittle coatings or lacquer coatings are a well-known and widely accepted non-destructive testing method that has been used for years to provide test engineers with quick, reliable, graphical information about the strain response of the material to which it is bonded.


StressKote brittle coating (formerly Stresscoat), sold exclusively by SK Coatings Distributors LLC, offers consistently dependable results and is backed by the extensive industry experience of testing and engineering professionals.
