Quality in laboratory and practice
When a surface protection is developed the OTE conducts different steps in the development. After a numerous amount of tests in the laboratory and in the technical center, concluding tests directly in the production show if a surface protection system fulfills the demanded quality requirements.
The test procedures, applied by the OTE are practice oriented and were developed on the basis of international norms. Only after a surface protection has passed all the demanding tests it is handed over to the customer.
Tests, conducted by the OTE are:
- freeze-thaw test
- efflorescence test
- water-/oil test
- staining test
- weather resistance test
- sliding resistance
- chemical resistance
