Your mobile lab in Johannesburg
Will the tile adhesive loosen or crack under the influence of changing temperatures and water immersion? Will the façade paint remain brilliant and crack-free under UV radiation and physical stress? These, and other issues, are fundamental to the quality of a building, its living conditions, and sometimes even its safety.
Creating Local Solutions
These questions must be answered locally, because what works in Dubai or Dublin will not necessarily work in Johannesburg, due to differences in architectural traditions, natural resources and climate. That is why, working with IMCD, our distribution partner, we have installed a mobile laboratory as a technical center right here in Johannesburg, South Africa.
