TESTING OF PRODUCTS DOES NOT FORM PART OF ANY CURRENT QUALITY ASSURANCE STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS
Despite the complexity of the material and the variables of the manufacturing process, all standards are based on testing of GRC test boards and not manufactured products
It is assumed that these sample boards represent broadly the same characteristics as the finished products (generally within 5%).
In our experience this is seldom the case.
This is not surprising given the variables between a small flat sheet produced solely for testing purposes and large 3-dimensional products manufactured by hand.
Factory testing also does not cover validating manufactured product thickness against factors of safety that should be used within the design engineering
Our In-house test laboratory is fully equipped to sample test boards from large manufactured panels randomly selected either as part of a factory quality assurance assessment or from site.
