The Association of Thermal Sprayers (GTS) was founded in 1992. The primary aims of the association’s founders were to acquaint a wide industrial public with thermal spray technology, to promote thermal spraying in conjunction with the German Welding Society (DVS), in research and industry, and finally, to support all its members in the industrial marketing of this technology. The joint activities of GTS are designed to represent the market interests of its members and to uphold these interests where necessary. In doing so, a high coating quality and corresponding quality assurance remain paramount.

From the very outset, it was clear that the general certification of member companies by state or state-accredited institutions in terms of ISO 9000ff could not be the sole means of successfully securing a high thermal spray level. Therefore, a GTS certificate was established based on the contents of ISO 14922 and a comprehensive set of rules was created. Deloro Wear Solutions is a certified GTS member.
