All aspects at one site 
With a yearly production capacity of 10,000 tons and an actual production of 3,000 batches, we can annually produce 220 different finished goods with 370 raw materials, varying from 100 kg to an astonishing 10,000 kg per lot. Once finished, the goods are stored in our warehouse that has a capacity of 1,400 ton. The capacity for the storage of raw material is 470 ton and finally the capacity of the tanks farm for raw materials and finished goods is 400 ton.

For example, here we study polymers reactions in water and solvent base, acrylic and urethane resins, wax emulsion, filler, binders, pigments and compounding. Through our R&D Analytical Lab we provide research and development support for projects and quality assurance. In order collect the right data we use innovative equipment, such as a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, Particle Sizer, Gas Chromatograph and a Gel Permeation Chromatograph. With our R&D Pilot Plant Reactor with a capacity of 180 kg for Urethanes water-based and 70 kg for acrylic resins and Urethanes solvent-based, we provide research and development support for projects, process and customer field trials.
