GSB International e.V., Dusseldorf, Germany
The GSB is a quality association and was founded in 1977. It is centrally organized and all inquiries of the approx. 180 member companies are processed directly by the headquarters in Düsseldorf.
The members are manufacturers of pre-treatment chemicals and coating materials as well as coating companies. In addition, the GSB also has supporting members such as coating equipment manufacturers. GSB-members are spread all over Europe. Some are also active far beyond the borders of Europe.
The GSB offers assured quality for coated surfaces made of aluminium and steel by defining standards that go beyond the norms of the industry in order to ensure that architects, building owners and industrial partners maintain the value and lasting attractiveness of their facades, buildings and products.
At the end of the day, a coating is only GSB-compliant if GSB-compliant pre-treatment processes and GSB-certified coating materials are used by a GSB-certified coating company.
GSB certified pre-treatment chemicals and coating materials are continuously tested.
The same applies to the coating companies that carry a GSB Quality Seal. They are audited twice a year without prior notice.
This comprehensive quality control ensures that optimum coating quality is the final result of every coating job.
