Surface analysis

All stages of production are subject to an internal quality management to ensure the constant high quality of our coating systems. This significant task starts at  the Goods Inward, goes further along the ongoing production processes und ends with the Goods Outward.

 


In our in-house laboratory with state-of-the-art analytical equipment we are able to run all essential tests for the monitoring and measurement of our coatings. Beside this primary function here we also analyse and test all recent developments and optimizations of our product range.


Our company is certified to the standard DIN EN ISO 9001:2008.
