Reko Korrosionsschutz GmbH and a Czech partner coated surfaces in flue gas entry areas for test purposes in coal-fired power plants with sites in Germany and the Czech Republic. There areas are partially subject to changing temperatures up to 250 °C in operation. When the dew point is undercut, sulphuric acid and sulphurous acids will form there. In this special range, permanent protection by organic coatings was not possible before, since they are only suitable for temperatures up to 160 °C. An externally charged chemical institute was able to prove that the silicate-material is resilient in the area of use of 250 °C when exposed to 50% sulphuric acid.
The first tests showed very positive results. At the moment, further tests are performed in power plants to finally confirm market maturity.

SICcast certified purs. to ISO 9001:2015
SICcast was the first company in Germany...
SICcast® was the first company in Germany to have its quality management system certified by certification by Lloyd´s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) purs. to ISO 9001:2015. SICcast® will receive the certificate for this today in a festive ceremony from LRQA Deutschland in the presence of Mr Erik Klinge, Marketing Manager Central Europe. At the same event, the management officers of affiliates SICcast® and DÜCHTING PUMPEN will receive the Crystal Award, an award for more than 20 years of quality management with a certificate. Further optimised corporate processes and an innovative service with clear customer focus will enable the cast-metal manufacturer to increase its competiveness as well. The value-added tasks are centrally mapped by clearly defined, efficient and flexible processes: from new customer acquisition to permanent customer support and from personnel management to order controlling to project processing.
The revised international ISO 9001:2015 standard has been future-oriented and essentially adjusted; it is documented that all processes and procedures in the company and at the suppliers are subject to constant inspection and permit continuous improvements thanks to the focus on risk management.
"When developing and implementing the new standard ISO 9001:2015, SICcast® benefited from the early pioneering demands of LRQA, a world-wide accredited and renowned management system certifier. Education and training offers from LRQA were used as well, to already achieve the target in the first days of November, right after publication of the German issue of the standard." Günter Zarges, head of operations and management officer at SICcast® .
