We are proud to announce the achievement of an important company goal: we have obtained the UNI EN ISO 14001:2015 certification, which demonstrates the compliance of our environmental management system with the well-known international standard. This certification demonstrates the value we place on respecting the environment: reducing the impact generated by waste as much as possible, improving the use of resources, using environmentally sustainable raw materials as much as possible and increasing the sustainability of our operations are just some of the goals we have set ourselves.
Rather than how to benefit from ecoating, we should ask ourselves why we should not always take advantage of it whenever possible. In the following article, we will look at how ecoating is essential for a wide range of industries and why we always recommend its application.
Pre-treatment processes for coating are essential to ensure that the surface is perfectly clean and free of impurities. There are different types of pre-treatment, each with its own characteristics, and the difficult thing is to assess which is the best in each case. In the following article we will analyse two of the main methods of surface preparation: degreasing and pickling.
Phosphating is a chemical pre-treatment that is applied to metals in order to protect them from corrosive agents. Let’s see why it is essential for coating and why we always recommend its use.
Shotblasting is a term that has entered the common vocabulary: we know that it is used to remove imperfections from surfaces and that it is in most cases an intermediate process in a product processing cycle, but how is it fundamental in the field of industrial coatings?
Christmas is sharing, tradition, emotion and family. It is the moment when anything can happen, where to make moments and memories unforgettable, from generation to generation. Live it with us!
The first approach to the world of industrial coating also involves understanding one of the biggest differences in the industry: what are the differences between powder and liquid coating? When to choose one or the other? We will try to clarify this by illustrating the characteristics and peculiarities of the two coating processes.
Agricultural machinery is among the equipment most exposed to environmental risks, as it works 12 months a year outdoors, in contact with the ground and the weather. That’s why the surface coating that covers them is fundamental both from an aesthetic and a protective point of view: it guarantees maximum productivity, ensuring that they always perform at their best.
In this article we are going to examine the last step of the industrial coating process, which is often taken for granted and which deserves to be examined in depth: the polymerisation phase in the curing oven, in which the paint is permanently deposited on the substrate.
A change in form and substance because our new website changes the approach with which we want to communicate with our users and customers: in a simpler and more dynamic way, more photographic and appealing, more detailed and specific. Discover our new website!

Sometimes we don’t think about it, but the use of colour can influence everyday life in many ways, both in industry and in the private sphere, arousing emotions and encouraging decisions.
The C5-M anti-corrosion paint cycle is the most protective of the anti-corrosion processes, as it guarantees maximum protection even in the most demanding environments, such as marine environments. Let’s see what it consists of and when its use is recommended.
Powder coating is a well-established standard in industrial coating, guaranteeing the highest quality of treatment and a low environmental impact. Let’s take a closer look at this process, how it works and what benefits it can bring.
Having spoken several times about the e-coating process, the time has come to go a little deeper with the matter, to explain in detail what it consists of from a more technical and specific point of view.
Compliance with gloss parameters is often essential when painting, which is why it is essential to assess it with safe, standardised and easily replicable tests.
Unity and teamwork make the difference and bring benefits both on a personal and corporate level, and are values that are often fostered by an optimal working climate.
While tidiness and cleanliness improve service delivery and the liveability of the workplace, modern logistics streamline processes.
The impact test is an extremely useful test, as it allows you to evaluate the results of impacts on painted surfaces.
E-coating and galvanising are the best treatments for protecting metals from corrosion and external influences. But the question arises: which one should you choose?
