Performance Systems

Quality Performance Systems (QPS)

for ZinKlad, DecoKlad and XMAPP

How MacDermid Enthone meets its customers obligations.

The QPS comply with the conditions set forth in the ISO 9001: 2015.

The following activities are covered by the QPS:


Validating and monitoring applicator processes worldwide to make sure they consistently meet

pre-defined QPS standards and agreed technical requirements.


The QPS is set up to achieve that: The QPS will be modified in case of:
  • The procedures and responsibilities are clearly defined.
  • Realized improvements are assured and communicated.
  • (New) employees have a quick insight into the way we work.
  • Internal changes or improvements (organizational changes).
  • External changes (market changes or new standards).
  • Identified possibilities for improvement (internal or external).


What do we do?
We supply and develop QPS standards that meet and exceed OEM specifications.

We validate applicators processes by conducting audits, carrying out inspections and testing the production output to make sure they meet pre-defined QPS standards and agreed technical requirements.

We monitor and report results on a global scale to be able to service and continuously improve performance. 


Why do we do what we do?
We believe that we are able to assure a global consistent performance at a local level meeting the global OEM requirements with a select number of world class applicators.

How do we do what we do?
MacDermid Enthone has developed a unique Quality Performance System called QPS that tackles the challenges for high-performance automotive coatings. OEM’s can be confident that the same coatings and consistent performance are available worldwide.

QPS helps automotive engineers to specify the right products in a sustainable world. The steady evolution of the program has enabled many global OEM’s to specify ever-higher performance standards and represents:


Approved applicators: Applying these products to a common audited standard ensures the same coating performance throughout the applicator base.

High performance: Exceeding the high demands for corrosion resistance and exceptionally consistent torque and tension characteristics.

Global consistency: Wherever ZinKlad, DecoKlad or XMAPP standards are applied, applicators know they are using the same high-performance products.

Of course, compliance with legislation, such as ELV & RoHS, ReacH and predictable torque-tension performance continue to be essential requirements. QPS continues to deliver on all of these needs.
