Engineered polymers are a chain: the weakest link in the polymeric chains we concoct will determine the strength of the coating.
It would be patently absurd to invest the funds we do in developing coatings without making sure that every single component that goes into them, and the manner in which the components are combined, are as close to flawless as possible.
So our quality control begins with the specification process, testing raw materials to eliminate any potential weak links before we begin assembling the chain. We test ingredients and their combinations every step along the way to the finished product, until it’s packed and ready to ship.
There is never enough control in quality control. It takes time, costs money and isn’t perfect. But the closer we come to perfection, the happier our customers are — and the better our business becomes.
