In order to provide the highest standards of technical service there is a structured testing procedure in place. This starts with a thorough evaluation of the customer's production slip and raw materials. A thorough assessment of each supplied raw material is also conducted and may include testing its chemical, mineralogical, physical and ceramic properties. The results of this complete study are used as the benchmark for recommendations. Customers are supported at every stage, starting with laboratory testing and finishing with plant trials according to their specific needs.
