The choice of raw materials used in creating CARTEC products is based on rigid certification attesting quality. Steel alloys used for cold pressing must resist breaking load and must not contain certain impurities or elements generated during thermodynamic metallurgical processes. Various tests are carried out to ensure that material used is suitable.
