Join us in a chat with the team about the importance of destructive testing, in order to obtain the highest quality possible.
We meet with Pedro Martins, the head of composites industrialization, and Francisco Moura, the solid surface production engineer, who are busy guiding the team through the launch of the new Velvet collection. In the Research & Development area they start by taking us through possible constraints they face when developing a new project.
Making the impossible possible, they tell us, is the great driver for the team at Sanitana. Around us are various (still secret) projects in different stages of development – some are new concepts, others are experiments that test and probe the capabilities of the material. It is clear that this is where they push the boundaries of performance.
For Francisco and Pedro, the constant drive to fine tune processes drives excellence. Through the years, they are the ones that have propelled changes to welcome new technologies, but they assure us that the level of craftsmanship embodied in Sanitana’s solid surface products remains.
As we stopped to see a new prototype, they explained to us how the team spends a lot of time going into the details. How will the material fare in a humid environment? Will cleaning products affect the surface finish? They know how important it is for everything to come together as a whole. And they know quality control is a big part of that.
