What it comes down to
After ten minutes, two large sheets are evenly painted and Greta and Tina step out of the booth and back into the hall, visibly satisfied. In the testing department, coatings are tested by being applied under various environmental conditions. Whether high humidity or different temperatures, everything can be simulated. "That wasn't so easy," the two remark. To get a good result it all comes down to the right amount of paint and air supply through the spray gun, as well as the speed at which it is moved. "It gets pretty hot in these suits," Tina notes as she tries to pull the white fabric over her shoe. Earlier, the students were allowed to mix the paint themselves. "Here you have to add something to cure the paint, our products include systems with one or two components. This coating’s used in aviation, for example," Julian elaborates.
