How do our inspectors work?

Before our (Level 2 and 3) inspectors start with the coating inspection, it is clearly communicated which aspects will be investigated. Examples are: the quality of the blasting activities, roughness, dry film thickness, the salinity and the visual properties . These are extensively inspected, checked and verified. On the basis of pre-set defined acceptance criteria and measurement results, the inspector concludes whether the work meets the agreed standards.


"Time constraints are, in our opinion, precisely a reason to choose the most qualitative option, rather than the fastest. Restoring work costs much more time."

Our view on sustainability

Paint products have a detrimental impact on the environment, on the other hand the material on which the coating is applied ensures it a long life. Certainly a qualitative coating extends the lifespan of objects considerably. With our knowledge of coating systems and the specific influences to which they are exposed, we help you choose the most durable solution.
