We are able to assure aglobalconsistent performance at alocallevel meeting the global OEM requirements witha select number of world-class applicators.

MacDermid Enthone has developed a unique Quality Performance System that tackles the challenges for high-performance automotive coatings. OEMs and Tier 1s can be confident that the same coatings and consistent performance are available worldwide. It helps automotive engineers and designers to specify the right products in a sustainable world with i.e. chromium-free etch pre-treatment for POP and trivalent chromium processes as an end finish.

The steady evolution of the program has enabled many global OEMs to specify ever-higher performance standards and represents:

Approved applicators:Applying these products to a common audited standard ensures the same coating performance throughout the applicator base.
High performance:Exceeding the high demands and exceptionally consistent characteristics on a world class level
Global consistency:Wherever DecoKlad Standards are applied, applicators know they are using the same high-performance products.

In summary:

  • We supply and develop standards that meet and exceed OEM specifications
  • We validate applicators processes by conducting audits, carrying out inspections and testing the production output to make sure they meet pre-defined standards and agreed technical requirements
  • We monitor and report results on a global scale to be able to service and continuously improve performance

Of course, compliance with legislation, such as ELV & RoHS, REACh and performance continue to be essential requirements. DecoKlad is an umbrella program that has combined several of our previously proven market differentiators.
