Quality is not just a by-word within Silicone Altimex, it’s a culture that exists throughout our workforce. Due to the critical nature of the products we make for customers, we cannot leave quality to chance; we engineer quality into products at the design stage.
Whether material-related or process-related, we take advantage of the latest innovations to ensure the quality of the material used is maintained at the highest standard throughout the production process.
Independent of all manufacturing and production facilities, the quality department defines procedures for each step of manufacturing and produces the required documentation to ensure quality is consistent for every order.
Silicone Altimex uses the latest in technology to ensure product specifications are met or exceeded:
To ensure our products meet standards required by customers, Silicone Altimex continuously tests both materials and finished products.
By carefully blending raw materials, we can produce and test materials specific to their requirements, i.e. flame retardant rubbers, optimised extended life in peristaltic pump tubing and high-pressure silicone tubing.
In addition to testing the physical characteristics of material, Silicone Altimex also carries out a wide variety of tests on finished products. Some tests are used to validate products, others are for internal research.
We have a fully equipped laboratory and outsource to external test facilities when required, or in some cases, when we need to call on the expertise of someone in a particular field or science.
