Hetraco B.V. Uses a quality policy that aims to guarantee and control the quality & certification of the product to be delivered. We only work with certified suppliers and strive to produce European basic material. Delivery with various certifications is our daily business, below you will find the possibilities we can offer.


We can offer the next possibilities:

  • 2.1 certificate according EN 10204
  • 2.2 certificate according EN 10204
  • 3.1 certificate according EN 10204
  • 3.2 certificate according EN 10204 (TüV / Veritas / Lloyd’s Register)

In addition, we are currently working hard to get the AD/2000 W0 certification. This means that we also get the PED/97/23 / EC certification for pressure vessels. We hope to complete this process by 2017, which will make us the next step in our quality policy.

Positieve Materiaal Identificatie (PMI)

PMI is the identification and chemical analysis of various metal alloys with destructive methods. PMI can be performed on site or in the laboratory. Two hundred years ago, there were 12 famous metals. Today we know about 86 species and there is a corresponding increase in alloys and steels.

Everything starts at the R&D phase, PMI helps our customers choose the right materials for the right application in this huge market. In production: PMI confirms by certification that the materials that our customers have received are in fact the materials they’ve purchased.

At all stages, PMI services enable customers to successfully draft business plans for their products and processes. If you use metal, steel, and special alloys in your company, a PMI test program will give your purchasing and process decisions confidence and make it profitable.

Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)

Magnetic research makes it possible to visualize defects on and below the surface. This is a Non Destructive Research (NDO) method, specially designed to detect irregularities in ferromagnetic material. Ferromagnetic materials are magnetizable materials, such as iron and steel. A magnetic field is applied in the material to be investigated using a so-called ‘Yoke’. In places where cracks and irregularities are present, the magnetic field is disturbed. Thus we detect where the irregularities, which can lead to problems, are located.

This method is commonly referred to as “fluxen” as well.
