Breaking New Ground in the Baltics! Saku Metall Allhanke Tehas Achieves QIB Certificate for Powder Coating Line.

Exciting news from Saku Metall Allhanke Tehas! We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve become the northernmost and first company in the Baltic region to receive the prestigious Quality Association Industrial Coating (QIB Qualitätsgemeinschaft Industriebeschichtung e.V.) certification for our powder coating line.

To ensure adherence to QIB standards, Saku Metall underwent a third-party audit, with processes evaluated and test plates tested in the laboratory. The company maintains a strict quality control regime, periodically providing test plates for up to 1500-hour salt spray test for proof of corrosion protection. The results of these assessments are documented in the certification, providing customers with transparency and assurance regarding the quality standards.

One of the distinguishing features of Saku Metall’s powder coating line is its attention to detail. From the chemistry of the pretreatment line to the coating process, every step is carefully monitored to ensure optimal results. Regular mechanical tests are performed on the powder coating line such as bending, impact, scratch, boiling, and the Machu test — a rapid corrosion test. This thorough assessment ensures that the company’s processes and products consistently meet the highest quality standards in powder coating.

“The QIB/QUALISTEELCOAT quality mark is an industry-wide recognized quality label through which we demonstrate our consistent quality standards and distinguish ourselves from competitors,” stated Gerth Kivima, the CEO of Saku Metall Allhanke Tehas. “More importantly, this certification streamlines our ability to implement new projects into production quicker, particularly within the rail industry.”

Saku Metall’s involvement in the rail industry since 2013 has further highlighted its commitment to producing high-quality products. The acquisition of the QIB certification reinforces the company’s reputation for reliability in this sector.

With the QIB certification in hand, we are committed to delivering high-quality products and services to our clients, setting new standards for excellence in powder coating in the Baltic region.
