QUALITY ASSURANCE

A stringent Quality Assurance (QA) system has been put in place to evaluate all processes at each step of manufacturing to maintain good quality consistently. QA department is managed by a team of highly qualified and experienced staff comprising of scientists, chemists and engineers who work round-the-clock.

Quality Control

  • Material testing is carried out as per the ASTM standards
  • Mutually defined Quality Agreements with customers form the basis for dispatching material
  • Customer feedback analysis is carried out based on Eight Disciplines Problem Solving (8D) method
  • Failure Mode and Effects analysis (FMEA) is carried out for each product
  • Sample retention policy:
    • Quantity per lot: 500Gms
    • Retention time: One year from date of production
  • Laboratory is well equipped for quality testing. Key Instruments are listed below:
