Acktar’s Mission for the Environment

The environment is a key aspect in all Acktar’s activities. This includes our offices, process, product as well as a central part of all our R&D efforts.

Our Office: Acktar has recently gone paperless. To do so we added a new computerized system, allowing easy access to all necessary information. And any papers still found around are collected and recycled.

Our Process and Product: The basic nature of Acktar’s coating processes do not include the use of any environmentally damaging materials and therefore do not generate any undesirable waste. The process itself is an engineered surface with a controlled topology, created by vacuum deposition of inorganic and completely non-toxic materials on a substrate.

By replacing “old” processes such as: Chemical etching and anodizing, that include the use of environmentally dangerous materials and generate toxic waste, we eliminate all costs of treating toxic waste and can offer not only more competitive prices but provide a unique and higher quality of product, the basis for an ecologically friendly product.
