Main points of work

As a result of my previous professional work in the Institute for Rock Metallurgy of the Technical University Aachen, as Deputy Head of the Official Material Testing Institute for Rock Products at the Technical University Clausthal-Zellerfeld and as Managing Director of Refractories Test Laboratory FPL GmbH in Bonn, I have comprehensive experience with the properties, the application and the testing of all kinds of building products and materials.

The spectrum of these materials ranges from natural stone as a building product or as a raw material, to cement, lime and plaster right through to ceramics and refractory products and also includes slag from the metals production and ash from power stations.

Main points of work are damage examinations in the field of inorganic, non-metallic building products and materials.

In addition to my work as independent technical expert for building products and materials, I have assessed more than twenty laboratories on behalf of the German Accreditation System Testing (DAP) and advise industrial companies on the introduction of quality management systems.
