Our quality control test laboratory has been operating as an accredited laboratory since 1990. The Qualilakk name and logo were copyrighted in 1995. The Qualilakk Laboratory works according to the MSZ EN ISO, DIN and ASTM standards.

The Qualilakk Laboratory was accredited by the Hungarian National Accreditation Authority (NAH) according to the standard MSZ EN ISO / IEC 17025. You can check the list of the accredited tests on the homepage of NAH.

Expert activity

The aim of the paint industry experts' work is to ensure high quality surface-protection job for the customers. The preconditions of the successful execution of painting and surface-protection process are the elaboration of the technology most suitable for on-site needs, the correct choice of the coating and the monitoring of the execution.

The tests required for our expert activities are carried out according to the current MSZ EN ISO standards.

Expert activity

Research and Development

Our R&D Department elaborates paint formulations for industrial use. Primary task is to realize FKI's own product development targets. Technical Service lab is part of the R&D department, which adjusts the paint parameters to customers' requirements and renders direct technical assistance.

We take part in national and international development projects in cooperation with industrial partners and university research teams.
