Products are diluted, for example, if the viscosity is too high, or
the colour is adjusted if it is not yet good enough. All incoming
raw materials are also checked to see whether they meet our
high demands and whether they are ecologically responsible.
Quality Control’s tasks also include the evaluation of products at
our stock locations. These need to be continually monitored to
guarantee the quality of our stocks.
Technical: development, improvement and research
The Technical Department is responsible for ensuring that all Japanese
paint and coating recipes are converted to a European
formulation. We endeavour to include raw materials from Europe
wherever possible. The European recipe is then sent back to
Japan for approval. This way, we are certain that the same
product is used all over the world. After approval from Japan,
we transform the technical recipe into a workable production
recipe. To ensure that we make the best product, there is
always someone from the Technical Department present at the
first production of a new recipe. That way, we can make any
necessary minor adjustments during the production process.
The Technical Department tests alternative raw materials, as
well. This is generally done to achieve cost savings or at the
request of the client. CMP is also continually engaged in improving
products and making them more ecological. Alternative raw
materials are examined and tested for various points. After we
have approved them, we send them on to Japan for approval.
Once the raw materials have been approved, a test batch is
produced. If this, too, proceeds without any hitches then the alternative
material will be used. The Technical Department is also
responsible for applying test panels for offshore, industrial and
PCP, for example. The department is always implementing new
developments for the European market. It provides answers to
questions on application, problems with coating and coating
systems in general.
