    Residual dirt analysis of precision parts and particle determination of filters

    Residual dirt remaining on surfaces from production processes impairs the function of electronic or technical components. For manufacturers, suppliers or users, DEKRA offers accredited cleanliness tests according to customer specifications and international standards.

    Your benefits from cleanliness testing at DEKRA

    • Comprehensive residual dirt determination and analysis of particles and oil films
    • LABS tests of materials, components, products and equipment
    • Accredited laboratory analysis and testing according to all common customer specifications and test procedures
    • Fast, safe and reliable test results with meaningful reports
    Particularly in the automotive industry, as well as in medical technology, aviation and the electrical industry, expectations regarding the quality and functionality of components are high. It is therefore important to avoid any possible contamination in production and processing procedures. For example, silicones, solvents and other critical substances can cause coating defects in the painting process or damage to components due to contamination. For cleanliness testing of components, precision parts and filters, we offer comprehensive residual contamination testing and determination of your component samples in our accredited laboratory in Stuttgart according to your individual requirements and on the basis of internationally recognized standards such as VDA 19 and ISO 16232. We also perform LABS tests in accordance with VDMA 24364 to assess the LABS conformity of your products, parts and components for painting systems.
