ALP Nishikawa's R&D Centre at Lalru, Punjab is Govt. recognized wherein all the research & testing activities are conducted starting from Raw Material (Like Polymer, carbon process oil, etc.) to the final parts taking into consideration the global testing standards.
With superior internal testing capabilities, we are able to do majority of the testing in-house, and the remaining testings are being done from accredited external laboratories (NABL or as per ISO/IEC 17025:2005) or using the facilities of the JV, Nishikawa Rubber Company of Japan.
ALP Nishikawa's 26 Member R&D Team is equipped with highly Educated, experienced & trained personnels to ensure best quality results.
The environment is monitored and the controls are appropriate for our laboratory based on the calibration standards and the accuracy required. Temperature or humidity does not affect the integrity of parts or equipment in our laboratory. Cleanliness of the area and equipment is accomplished through daily activities.
The standards used for testing are:
In-house calibration of basic test equipment: Standard gages used for production monitoring are calibrated per the required procedures. Masters are calibrated by an outside source
Accredited Laboratories: Commercial/independent laboratory facilities that we use for calibration of the laboratory equipment as well as testing of products.The standards used for testing are:
|Process oil||Saybolt viscosity, Aniline point, Flash point, Density, or as per quality plan|
|Accelerators||Melting point, moisture, Ash content, Sieve residue or as per quality plan|
|ZnO||pH, Loss on calcinations, or as per quality plan|
|CaCO3CaCO3||Fineness test, pH or as per quality plan|
|Polymer||Mooney in ML (1+4) 125°C, or as per quality plan|
|Stearic acid||Melting point, or as per quality plan|
|Carbon black||Sieve residue, DBP, pH, or as per quality plan|
|Desiccant(CaO)||Sieve residue, Moisture content, or as per quality plan|
