Quality Assurance



"For over 50 years Vertikote Corp has been a leading applicator of powder coating finishes and has been at the forefront of continuous improvement measures in the pursuit of quality. In 2008, Vertikote made the decision to implement the Qualicoat quality management system and immediately set about fulfilling all requirements. After an intensive period of testing and auditing Vertikote became an authorized Qualicoat powder coater and has now received its official Qualicoat Licence Number No: 2111 that confirms its major powder coating facility located at Chipping Norton in Sydney NSW has met or exceeded the minimum specifications and performance requirements to be an approved applicator.  Qualicoat is the Australasian Institute of Surface Finishing (AISF) highest quality recognition for application of paint and powder coatings on aluminium substrates for architectural applications. It is only achieved after passing two consecutive and intensive inspections by an independent testing authority that scrutinizes compliance with all aspects of the operations including pre-treatments, on site laboratory, monitoring and testing equipment, production processes, testing, inspections and quality assurance.

Vertikote’s customers can be assured this endorsement reflects that all its processes and coating are in accordance with Qualicoat’s internationally recognized quality system, meet the specifications of Australian Standards including AS3715 and ensures the highest possible quality of powder coating finishes.
