To help assure uniformity and reliable performance of Nomex®, we’ve developed an advanced, statistically based system of quality controls. After all Nomex® products have to meet the highest standards—ours.
The main elements are:
Written definition and routine monitoring of all process conditions. Process conditions are computer-controlled, utilizing feedback of process and quality measurements, and are continuously monitored on the machine.
Routine testing of statistically selected samples of all products in standardized, state-of-the-art laboratories.
Visual inspection, with both reflected and transmitted light, which supplements automatic, online inspection of all finished products to detect and remove or correct defects caused during paper manufacture.
Product specifications for all property and quality standards must be met before any Nomex® product can be shipped.
Complete records of all process conditions and test results, identifiable by package number, to facilitate the traceability of any shipped product.
Our quality systems comply with international standards and have been certified to ISO 9002 since 1991. We also upgraded our certification to the ISO 9001:2000 standards in 2002.
