E-Quality Audit™

What matters most?plaque

Long term field performance has proven the Azon thermal barrier polymers—as part of the aluminum fenestration composite—are a more efficient fenestration product. Whether the goal is recylability, performance or cradle-to-cradle characteristics, Azon fosters unique partnerships with companies around the world by providing turnkey means to produce thermal barriers. 

The Azon E-Quality Audit™ is a procedure customers utlilize 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

Many and varied facets of a window’s performance are critical. Structural integrity, weathering, long-term service, energy conservation, along with occupant comfort all contribute to overall performance. One performance factor that cannot be overlooked is the impact of window condensation on human health and comfort.
When aluminium fenestration designers are selecting components to comprise a window’s fabrication, they choose materials that will result in a product with a high condensation resistance factor (CRF). Simply stated, the CRF is a measurement of the window’s ability to resist the formation of condensation. A higher resistance factor means a more efficient fenestration product.
