Determine data according to the standard EN 13555 for the gasket product
Simply put in the data into our user-optimized web form
Your data is checked by a independend third party
Publication of the data to gasketdata.org and the API
An adequate EN13555-dataset per gasket type has to be made available. In every case repeated test results are mandatory as this is a minimum requirement in EN 13555. Tests on one gasket type can be completed by multiple test centres and combined together for submission if required.
The determined values have to be processed to achieve a representation which enables the visitors of gasketdata.org understanding how the gasket product performs. Therefore a very advanced web-form is avaiable where you can copy & paste the test results. The datasheet will be automatically generated using the values of the double-tests.
Test results (according to 1.) from well known test houses, e.g. Amtec, GAIST, Cetim or FH Münster, will be accepted for the the database without the need of an additional cross-check. If all the data or parts of the data is determined by the manufacturer's laboratory, a randomly chosen cross-check is mandatory and will be performed of one of the laboratorys mentioned earlier in this paragraph. FH Münster reserves the right to choose the type of test to be carried out. If the random test result is within an accepted range of tolerance, the whole data set will be accepted.1 Five test samples have to be provided for the cross-check.
The process of the publication is administratively done by GAIST GmbH (comissioned by FH Münster). Beginning with 2021 the publication process is shifted from ordering by email to the platform gasketcloud.com. The confirmation for publication is given by the manufacturer earlier in this process by ordering the publication of the product to gasketdata.org. In this last step, after the FH Münster successfully checked the data, which may have been validated by a cross-check, the data will be published to gasketdata.org.
Easily add additional files like certifications, admissions or other supporting documents to your gasket product after you have published it on gasketdata.org. The additional documents are then also published to gasketdata.org and help designers and decision-makers choosing the right product for the desired application. The amount of certificates and admissions is not limited by the way so you can add as many as you wish!
By the use of gasketcloud.com the datasheets are created in the twinkling of an eye. Thanks to the intuitive user interface you can input the needed data within a few minutes and release it for the publication process right afterwards. Even updating data of gaskets is no problem at all and will be performed revision-safe. By the way there is no special software needed, just use the browser of your OS!
The publication of gasket datasheets and additional documents at gasketdata.org is done using the interface which is available through gasketcloud.com. All required functions are combined there and also the complete workflow for publication is implemendet at gasketcloud.com. The gasketdata.org platform is operated by GAIST GmbH on the basis of a licence granted by Münster University of Applied Sciences. GAIST operates the platform gasketcloud.com and by order of FH Münster the service gasketdata.org. For the publication at gasketdata.org the use of gasketcloud.com is free of charge!
