When customers use Azon chemicals and machinery, they receive a comprehensive service package that covers design, functionality, technical field support and ongoing testing and quality assurance procedures. See more about the warranty programs . .
Validating the performance of Azon polyurethane through rigorous testing is key to producing a structural, thermal barrier fenestration composite that meets or exceeds industry standards. As a method to validate performance and quality assurance, the Azon E-Quality Audit™ program was established to record, monitor and store test data while tracking each customer’s daily chemical processing checks, the Azon plaque and extrusion test results, and Azon equipment quality audit reports.
The Azon E-Quality Audit™ is a procedure for maintaining optimal levels of quality for daily chemical processing, plaque and extrusion programs, and for equipment quality audits. E-Quality Audit program users log in using a password to a secure server to fill out and view reports for specific quality audit programs. Data collection for the daily check and plaque program records temperatures, gel times and ratios. Machinery system checks are also entered for viewing and report retrieval. All data is stored permanently in the electronic database. The daily quality chemical check, plaque and extrusion sample regimens are important to ensure the composite materials are prepared according to proper specifications. Just as important to the ongoing quality assurance are the polymer plaques and extrusion samples customers submit to Azon for testing and evalutation.Lab technicians at Azon conduct certain polymer plaque and composite extrusion tests on customer-submitted samples according to ASTM International and American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) standards. Data is then entered into the Azon E-Quality Audit™ program online. When testing is complete, customers can view the reports from the Internet.
