AQF Building Materials Expertise
Poorly manufactured building materials can have severe consequences for the construction industry. Any defects have a direct impact on the quality and safety of the structures they are used in, with serious implications for revenue, customer satisfaction, and overall supply chain performance. It’s crucial that all factories, importers, and retailers involved in building material manufacturing in China and Asia, ensure finished goods meet the applicable industry regulations and safety standards, as well as the end user's high expectations.
AQF offers building material inspection services for all types of construction materials made of metal, plastic, glass and ceramics. The scope of our services includes a diverse range of products such as sanitary equipment, aluminium wall panels, CPVC pipes and fittings, granite counter tops, industrial valves, metal wires, galvanized steel wire strands, aluminium coils, ceramic tiles, extrusions, pre-fabricated doors, bricks, blocks, toilets, and water taps.
The workmanship, specifications, functions, and safety of your building materials are checked, along with their compliance with relevant standards as required by your product’s destination.
Building Materials Quality Control Approach
AQF technical engineers work closely with your team to customize one of our standard building material inspection checklists by incorporating the key risks and unique specifications of your product. AQF inspectors verify the quality of mass production based on your Acceptable Quality Limits (AQL), provide an overview of the finished goods’ quality, and highlight the key improvement areas for production. We also perform material function and quality tests, and assess compliance with your product’s specifications and reference samples.
Some tests on building materials require a controlled environment to properly certify their compliance with the standards and regulations of a destination country. Our AQF inspectors select items from the production batch and forward them to an accredited laboratory for processing.
AQF's extensive expertise in building material quality control and leading edge quality management software can provide even greater value to your organization. We have the knowledge and resources necessary to assist you and your suppliers to set up and manage a customized surveillance program and optimize the use of limited resources. We help you control key quality risks, monitor and analyze results and advise on corrective actions necessary for improvement.
