Research & development
Being close to your customers means understanding what they need.
By placing this principle at the heart of our approach to service, we are laying the foundations for highly efficient products that are tailor-made to fit our customers' requirements. Our technicians, engineers and chemists collaborate closely throughout the entire development process, considering all of the different angles and approaches to the task at hand. The number of inventions that we have patented is testament to the success of our approach to innovation.
We have our own development laboratory equipped with all of the latest devices and testing equipment, enabling us to lead the way and set the bar high in the global market for sealing technology and corrosion prevention. Our engineers develop efficient processing machines to create practical, tailored and user-friendly solutions.
Specialist knowledge and key developments emerging from university scientific faculties (such as RWTH Aachen University and the Institute for Pipeline Construction [IRO] at Oldenburg) support our high standards in quality and innovation. DEKOTEC and its sister companies collaborate closely with many institutions and universities. As members of various standards committees, we continually drive development and are at the forefront of testing new technologies.
A tradition of innovation
The strength of our innovation is the foundation on which DEKOTEC has become a global success: Since the very beginning, we have focused on developing high-quality products. Many of our innovative solutions have resulted in the development of brand new process and application techniques, which have gone on to improve how many users work significantly.
One of the earlier examples of our solution-focused, innovative approach in action dates back to 1927: The corrosion prevention methods used widely at that time – which used jute bandages dipped in bitumen to seal joints – often caused significant damage. We made finding a solution our mission, researching and developing brand new methodologies for corrosion prevention. These new ideas started a revolution in the global corrosion prevention industry!
