It’s not about yard wins; it’s about the adhesive strength of clear coatings. “Conducting tests independently or having responsibility for smaller projects is the most fun”, says Luca, who goes on to describe the extra kick the traineeship provides: “Being able to apply coatings myself is also always super cool.”
Luca has been undertaking a coatings laboratory assistant’s traineeship at Wörwag since September 2014. This generally takes three and a half years, and sees the passionate NFL player work in various laboratory divisions. So far, he has already been in Industrial Coatings, Quality Assessment, Vehicle Interior Finishes and Materials Engineering, and is currently working in the Base Coatings department.
It is here that he has also conducted the rinse test. In addition to the work in the various departments, there are also three hours of workshop training at Wörwag and vocational college every week. He is joined by seven other trainees in his year. “Chemistry was always my favourite subject. That’s why I chose this job”, says Luca. The final sealer was the prospect of a guaranteed one-year employment contract.
