Jotun has implemented n2pdf in a database called "Technical Data Sheets". The database creates technical data sheets for all kinds of paints. The technical data sheets describe all technical aspects of the paints such as pre-treatment, physical properties, drying times etc. All paints must be provided with a technical data sheet when sold to a customer.
An agent in the technical data sheets database creates the required PDF document every time a datasheet changes. The PDF files are also published automatically on the Jotun websites. Below you will find a couple of sample documents from the application. The "live" application can be found at www.jotun.com in the bottom right section called "Services". There is a heading called "Technical and Safety Datasheets" - these "Technical Data Sheets" are created with n2pdf.
