Our customers apply different customer´s formulations. It is only by We round off our testing arsenal methods of application, depending reproducing the original application with different test procedures which, on the function of the coating. That´s procedures as authentically as possible among others, test the leveling of the why it is our objective to replicate on a that we can achieve the results required coating or the orientation of the effect laboratory scale the whole panoply of by our clients. pigments. This also includes our car coating procedures which are currently wash test – a special laboratory system being practiced in the automotive In addition, we deploy our new CED with which we can realistically replicate industry. Only under this condition can line to test the behavior of our additives the conditions of a car wash. we continuously support our customers. during cathode dip coating. The CED line allows us to simulate the first All in all, these varied procedures We have, for example, an ESTA line organic coating in the automotive OEM provide us with the possibility of solving (electrostatic application). It enables coating. This is applied to the metal specific tasks. In close collaboration with us to provide an efficient coating, just substrate in the dipping process. To be our customers we help them formulate like you would see in industry. With able to test coatings for automotive their coatings. Cathode dip coating Car wash test Spray guns 17
