We believe that quality is a condition and not a distinguishing property. You can, therefore, have every confidence that our tapes are of constant quality with excellent adhesion performance. Our quality policy also focuses on innovative product development, flexible, efficient and food-safe tape production and timely delivery. ISO 22000 quality and food safe guidelines are an important guide within this context. In addition to our controlled processes, our focus is on quality awareness and controls on a daily basis.
Tape production in a food-safe environment
We produce food-safe tapes for the food industry in an ISO-22000/HACCP-certified environment in accordance with EC Directive No. 1935/2004. Measures such as entry checks, pest control and strict hygiene, cleaning and process control prevent any possible contamination by broken glass, chemicals etc during the production process. Therefore, our food-safe tapes are suitable for direct and indirect food contact applications and satisfy both product and process requirements legislation sets with regard to food suitable tape in every respect.
Continuously aim for operational excellence
An important quality objective is supply chain excellence. We follow our performance in the logistics chain closely. From the way in which we procure raw materials to our delivery reliability. Every step influences the degree in which we supply consistent tapes on time for prices in line with the market to your site. Our aim is "operational excellence" in our order processing, production and logistics departments.
Focus on employee quality awareness
Employees who operate machines and ensure processes are fulfilled determine the difference between good and not so good quality. We, therefore, make them aware of the consequences of their actions and point out the importance of good collaboration. We work on increasing efficient processes and continuously improving quality throughout the entire company by providing knowledge and insights in best practice through training.
Performance of daily quality controls
We produce our tapes in accordance with technical specifications and test them based on AFERA test methods. Depending on the tape type and application, we perform additional tests to guarantee that the tape meets specific industrial and/or customer requirements. Our quality and production departments check quality with regard to the following standard and/or specific properties (this is not an exhaustive list):
|• Adhesive strength on steel||• Temperature performance|
|• Adhesive strength on stone||• Stretch|
|• Adhesive strength on film||• Delivery speed|
|• Initial tack||• Tensile strength|
|• Adhesive function|
