Rigid Controls and Testing Methods at APPL
All incoming raw materials are strictly tested, checked and approved prior to use. After the mixing of ingredients, each batch is tested for hardness, specific gravity and cure characteristics. Finished products are randomly tested on the shop floor before undergoing a quality inspection which includes visual and physical testing for dimensions, physical properties and product appearance. Where appropriate, Quality Assurance procedures can be tailored to meet individual customer requirement.
Our well equipped laboratory is fully capable of carrying out control tests such as aged and unaged hardness, tensile strength, elongation at break, compression set, tension set, dimensional accuracy, electrical resistance, ash content, relaxed modulus tests etc., in accordance with procedures of a host of standards such as BS EN 681-1, ASTM F 477, DIN 4060 etc.
