1. Entwickeln

Alltag in der Werkstatt: Jeden Tag andere Fahrzeugtypen und jeden Tag andere Probleme mit Korrosion. Mal sind es Wohnmobile, mal Klassiker, mal Geländewagen und oft auch ganz normale Alltagsautos. Und immer häufiger geht es auch um Industrieanlagen, Windkrafttürme und Schiffe. Welche Anforderungen gibt es, was müssen die TimeMax Rostschutzprodukte wirklich können?

2. Prüfen

Alle neuen Produkt-Rezepte werden vor der Markteinführung aufwändig geprüft. Sie prüfen u.a. in St. Peter Ording am Nordsee-Strand und auf den Kanarischen Inseln. Nach den Prüfungen werden die Ergebnisse ausgewertet. Falls nötig werden die Produkt-Rezepte modifiziert und verbessert.

3. Anwenden

Auch die Werkstatt trägt dazu bei, dass das Rostschutz-System immer besser wird. Viele Monate werden das Handling und die Verarbeitung bei jedem Produkt geprüft: Egal, für welchen Einsatz, egal ob für Fahrzeuge oder für die Industrie: Was kann man bei der Anwendung besser machen? Erst nach diesem letzten Test kommt das neue Produkt auf dem Markt.

The name TimeMAX freely translated means "time maximization". TimeMAX has set itself the task of significantly extending the service life of vehicles and industrial structures through long-term corrosion protection.


Consistently the best for long durability. The goal in all work on the body and in the restoration of youngtimers and oldtimers: 20 years of protection against rust perforation.


TimeMAX is a medium-sized company from Trittau. Their development of the rust protection system is based on experience and many years of research by the managing director. The company has been around since 2004.

So is it still possible? Cars built to last?

In the eighties, some German manufacturers such. For example, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, VW and Audi have started a quality offensive and commissioned their engineers to pay attention to longevity during the design and manufacture of the cars.

The almost proverbial “indestructibility” of cars from this time has contributed significantly to the good reputation of German companies around the world.

Even now, even though decades have passed, many new car customers are consciously or unconsciously making their purchase decision based on the fact that they enjoyed the exceptionally good quality of these cars many years ago.

In the auto press and in Internet forums, there are always stories about extremely durable Mercedes-Benz W 124, VW Golf 2 and Audi 100: Cars from the eighties that are very well protected against rust and that are still on our roads without any major problems are.

The Mercedes-Benz W 124 and the VW Golf 2 in particular have become cult objects for many car fans. There can hardly be better advertising for German manufacturers than such articles in the trade press.

Value as a thread and quality in production pay off in the long term!

In an interview at the end of the 1980s, the former Audi manager Martin Winterkorn once described his long-term quality offensive, which was unusual at the time. Terms such as durability, value, stability and quality were mentioned again and again. All old virtues that were ridiculed by many “modern” marketing experts at the time because of the high costs involved in production and the successes that might be visible too late. At that time, Winterkorn was the head of the newly designed “Quality Assurance” department at Audi and his thoughts prevailed.

The success of the strategy, which was expensive for the manufacturer at the time, only became apparent later. The image of the company was changed and shaped in a lasting positive way. The Audis from that time still drove fit and lively on our streets at the old age of 20 and thus made an almost pricelessly important advertisement for free: They created and strengthened trust in the brand.

Winterkorn's strategy has also paid off economically. Even if it may sound a bit arrogant at this point: At TimeMAX we think similarly: Even if the path to success is sometimes long and arduous, value and quality always pay off. The goal of all work carried out by us is extremely high durability. Quality as the guiding principle of the company philosophy is important for our mechanics, because it increases motivation and it is important for our customers.

The Mercedes-Benz W 124 and the VW Golf 2 in particular have become cult objects for many car fans. There can hardly be better advertising for German manufacturers than such articles in the trade press.
