Quality Standards & Certifications
ISO 9001: KJLC gained ISO 9001 standard certification in 2004. However, we are well aware that quality is not about a certificate, it is about process and dedication.
Raw Materials & Precursors
KJLC has an established portfolio of qualified suppliers, managed through our Supply Chain Management System. Qualified suppliers provide KJLC with Certificates of Analysis of composition purity. KJLC performs periodic audits and conducts independent tests as part of the normal management controls.
Powder & Final Product Processing
KJLC manufactures to stringent manufacturing standards, designed to yield stated design specifications including chemical composition, purity, particle size, density, dimensions, and finish. GDMS, XRD, ICP and Particle Size Analysis are used to verify that process parameters yield the desired product characteristics. KJLC performs periodic audits and tests as part of the normal management controls.
In-process inspections are made at every step by the KJLC manufacturing team member responsible for that step. At select stages and again on job completion the product is inspected by our experienced quality control technicians using the appropriate inspection tools or a coordinate measuring machine. A Certificate of Analysis is generated for the final product, traced back to the respective powder LOT number.
