In addition to the adhesive and the materials to be bonded, the decisive factor in bonding is the reliable control of the processes. DIN 2304 „Bonding Technology – Quality Requirements for Bonding Processes – Part 1: Bonding Process Chain“ can be a decisive aid in this respect.
The standard lists all relevant process steps from development to production. It also includes the point of bond repair, provides information on storage and logistics, and defines the requirements for the qualification of personnel.
For more than 10 years there has been a series of standards, DIN 6701, parts 2 – 4, which are comparable in many respects, for use in rail vehicle construction.
DIN 2304-1 is now detached from the application sector. It is considered the rule of technology for the automotive industry, mechanical engineering, the production of „white goods“ and agricultural machinery, as well as for shipbuilding and the construction industry.
As a rule of technology, it must be implemented in abiding manner and is the basis for criminal or contractual law proceedings. Compliance with the rules of technology is a central point of German jurisdiction.
On the basis of DIN 2304-1 and our DIN 2304 certification program, TC Kleben GmbH can audit and–if the result is positive–certify companies. A certificate that confirms the user that he has mastered the process chain of bonding is handed over to the company by us. In contract negotiations this is certainly a security for the user.
The certificate is also listed in the DIN 2304 online register (www.din2304.de). This is also an important marketing tool. Customers can use it to select qualified subcontractors.
If desired, your company can also carry a test mark „Certified specialist adhesive company“ after successful certification, which can be used in accordance with our trademark regulations.
We would be pleased to work for your company, to inform you about the necessary steps on the way to a certificate according to DIN 2304. We would also be pleased to make you an offer on this subject.
