In the beginning, wood glues were being produced. However, as the demand for high quality lacquers and paints became more evident, Rhenocoll expanded into the production of specialized timber protection systems. Further development saw furniture varnishes, wall and facade paints and highly advanced window coating systems added to the Rhenocoll range. High quality, durability and environment-friendliness are our guiding themes.
In 2002, the "Competenz-Centrum" in Konken was initiated where Research & Development, technical engineering, retraining and the Rhenocoll-Academy are consolidated. Custom built laboratory rooms were constructed to facilitate the on going research and product development. The Application Technology Centre houses complete, state of the art, industrial coating machines specifically set up for demonstration and training purposes. Customers can be trained theoretically and practically.
Large laboratories are available for research and development; and our department for applied technology is equipped with a complete set of machinery used for practical tests. In the past few years Rhenocoll has launched several new products with unique features, such as glues with special properties or water-based coatings for PVC profiles.
The Rhenocoll-Academy offers highly professional expert training seminars and advanced training. Our activities have been recognized for the benefits to our industry and environment. The most recent awards bestowed upon Rhenocoll were the Innovation Prize in 2005 and again in 2009 presented to our company by the Minister for Economic Affairs.
