We take Quality Assurance seriously

All products are designed and manufactured to applicable international standards. To ensure the highest level of quality assurance is provided, Armatec Environmental Ltd maintains a quality assurance system covering both design and manufacture. Armatec's quality assurance system is verified to ISO 9001 by Bureau Veritas.

All personnel at Armatec are responsible for quality. A full “Quality Manual” is kept at Armatec’s office. Armatec is committed to ensuring that the supply of products and services exceed our customers’ requirements.

All products are designed and manufactured to the requirements of ISO9001. Bureau Veritas is the auditing body. The scope of registration is; “the design, manufacture and installation of air pollution control products, industrial fibreglass products and protective coatings”. A copy of the certification is available on request.

All contracts are logged, and information is kept on materials used and quality assurance steps taken. These logs are available to clients. Logs are kept by Armatec for a number of years following the completion of the contract.

All fibreglass products are checked for quality before despatch. This includes taking Barcol Hardness readings to measure the degree of cure of the laminate. If the readings are lower than required, the items are post cured until satisfactory readings are obtained.

The quality assurance system provides materials traceability, so that if there is a problem in the future, materials can be identified and traced back to the supplier.
