  • It certifies high quality applicators for Fashion Finishes…Worldwide!
  • It uses new and advanced techniques to ensure the Consistency and Conformance
  • A Global program from a trusted supplier

To become a Q-Klad applicator, companies must adopt the following processes:

  • Supplement engineering based testing (i.e. thickness, CASS, thermal shock) with aesthetic based measurements, for example color and gloss.
  • Maintain their surface finishing processes to ensure consistency by using process control plans.
  • Share test data with MacDermid to aid continuous improvement of the Q-Klad program.

Additionally these platers understand that the decorative automotive supply chain is global in nature. Therefore appearance matching of parts sourced from different locations is a critical part of the Q-Klad program.
