A thorough coating specification is a necessary basis for any successful coating project. It converts expectations into concrete requirements. DCC supplies unambiguous specifications that provide clarity for all parties involved.

Failure analysis

A thorough failure analysis is not just a report containing an accumulation of laboratory test results. In addition to the use of the relevant techniques, having the right strategy is of even greater importance. DCC has many years of experience in performing failure analysis.

Laboratory results

Detecting carcinogenic or toxic substances in existing coating systems is a vital step in protecting people and the environment. DCC runs analysis on existing coating systems and provides a thorough interpretation of the test results.

“We have been working with DCC since the foundation. Craftsmanship, reliability, clear and objective reporting are the core tasks we were looking for as a company and this is what we found at DCC. The preparation of coating specificaJons, follow-up of coating activities and final reporting is in good hands at DCC. All activities are carried out to full satisfaction.”

W.J.W – TEAM Terminal B.V.

“DCC has been a reliable partner for many years that ensures that metal preservation does and continues to do its “job”, i.e, protection of steel. In addition to this technical support, DCC is always able to discuss the differences between assignment and expectations in such a way that advice is not only understood but also implemented.”

Rob van der Beijl – ExxonMobil Chemical Holland B.V.

“As a High End Data Center, we always want to be able to offer our customers a well-protected environment. One of the invisible dangers in data centers is corrosion. The current metals that are used by the hardware manufacturers today are often much less of quality compared to 15 years ago. Steel is no longer treated after cutting and punching to keep costs low. As a result, cut edges are often untreated steel. This means that applying the ASHRAE standard is insufficient for our standards. In order to properly control the corrosion process within our locations, we looked for specialists in the field of corrosion. We found these at DCC. They carry out annual measurements and checks at our locations so that our customers are assured of the best possible climate conditions.”
