TCKI is an independent research institute and consultancy bureau.
Measuring, testing and improving
We analyse raw materials, materials, processes and production techniques and give reliable advice. We help producers by answering questions on safety, sustainability and the environment. We also offer advice in the fields of energy and labour conditions. For example, clients from the (building) industry can use our findings to check and adjust their emissions, improve production processes and test innovations.
Ceramic building industry
We know everything there is to know about clay bricks, clay pavers, ceramic roof tiles, clay pipes, wall and floor tiles, sanitary ware, refractories, technical ceramics and earthenware products. We can also translate this knowledge to many other sectors.
We have been the reliable sounding board for the ceramic building materials industry for decades, but our knowledge is applicable in many sectors of the building industry, other industries and community service. TCKI is an independent, reliable and pragmatic knowledge institute. The laboratory and the measuring group are accredited for many activities.
