Quality ObjectivesLexomo quality control team use statistical process control (SPC) for each step of the manufacturing process. Many also work closely with their raw material suppliers to ensure that specifications are met before the material is used.
SPC consists of statistics and charts that are used to monitor various processing parameters such as milling time, drying temperature, particle size and time, dimensions after pressing, compaction pressure, density, firing temperature and time, and the like. These statistics identify problems with equipment, out of spec conditions, and help to improve yields before the final product is finished.
The final product come up in the market if it meets certain Lexomo specifications regarding physical and chemical properties, these properties are determined by standard tests established.
Properties measured include water absorption, dimensional stability, mechanical strength, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, frost resistance, and linear coefficient of thermal expansion. The slip resistance that can be determined by measuring the friction coefficient.
