Austrian Know-How & Technology of OFI Technologie & Innovation GmbH at Corrosion Prevention Balkans’18


Interview with Michael Bodendorfer, Frosio Inspector Level III,
Head of Industrial Plastic Components, Bondings & Coatings, OFI GmbH

Please present in brief the focus of your presentation

There are projects with extraordinary stresses with regards to settings, chemical media etc. which actually require specific suitability verifications, therefore, coating tests by a laboratory are usefull in advance.

The costs for testing (different) coatings before application do not nearly reflect the costs of damage repair (even less for any indirect costs or production breakdown). The decision-makers shall be responsible for ensuring that the product or the service ordered corresponds fully to his requirements and purpose.
This presentation will give you an overview using an actual project in Vienna at the worlds greatest climatic wind tunnel by going through the steps already done.

What are the main features/characteristics of the OFI products & Know-how in corrosion protection field

We can support our customers in damage prevention – individual specifications for corrosion prevention/ testing the suitability for specific stresses/ preparation of maintainance plans – but also in assesements of damage (claims assesement) with analytical methods, if necessary. Of course monitoring and inspections on site will be covered from OFI too if requested from our customers.

What are their advantages & in which industry sectors they are applicable?

If you will, our USP is to combine analytical Know-how (and certainly equipment) in coatings and in fact plastics in general with practical implementation on site. This OFI Business Unit operates in different sectors like pharmaceutical industry, Oil&Gas industry, construction industry, automotive-, railroad- and aviation industry, food industry, plastic&coating industry etc.. Further benefits for our customers are the synergies to other OFI Business Units like microbial acitivity or approvals for use in contact with food (relating to coatings).
