Quality Control

UltrAnode Quality Control Plan
Our company has a complete quality control system. All products are manufactured under the guideline of ISO 9001:2008 and other industry-recognized standards, including the re-inspection of raw materials (titanium substrate, noble metal, cable and other materials), processing inspection (process card, technical procedure), and finished products’ inspection (accelerated lifetime test, binding capacity and coating thickness etc).

Other internal standards have been assigned to in-process steps such as cutting, sandblasting and acid washing to ensure their quality. In addition, lifetime test and coating activity test are performed on the produced electrodes. After assembly, some other tests are done on the final product as well.
