To attain the highest standard in quality, papers are specially selected, impregnated
with melamine and phenolic resins and then pressed and hardened together under high
temperature and pressure to ensure better bonding. A special finish makes the laminates
water and scratch resistant. Over and above, the unique Anti-Ageing Formula gives
the laminates high resistance to various kinds of wear and tear.
Boiling Water Test : The laminate is kept in boiling water for
2 hours in order to check whether it has become a homogenous mass that will not
delaminate for a lifetime.
With a client base spread across the globe, Sundek quality is truly international.
The Furniture Industries Research Association (FIRA) of UK has tested and found
Sundek laminate quality as equal to or exceeding British European Standard "BS
EN 438". Sundek laminates also meet ISI, American NEMA LD -3 and other international
Our products are made in conformity to IS: 2046. Also, the electrical insulation
sheets conform to IS: 2036, grade P1. Sundek is also an ISO 9001 -2000 certified
company. The laboratory conducts tests at each stage to ensure superior quality.
Raw Materials : Each raw material is thoroughly tested as per required
standards and is accepted only if it meets the same.
Goods in Process : Elaborate process norms have been fixed in each
stage of the manufacturing process. The goods are tested at the end of each process
to check whether they meet the process norms.
Finished Product : Samples from each and every batch of production
are subjected to strict quality tests like.
Dry Heat Resistance Test : The laminate is subjected to indirect
heat temperature of 1800 C for 20 minutes by a cup of hot oil. This checks the laminate's
resistance to heat on a day to day basis.
Surface Wear Test : Emery paper with specific weight is rubbed
against the laminate in a circular motion. A machine records the number of circles
a laminate can endure before it gives in to wear and tear.
Scratch Resistance Test : A diamond point is pushed over the laminate
to check how resistant it is to scratches and whether it is tough enough to face
Stain Resistance Test: A variety of chemicals are spilled over
and kept for a long time on the surface of the laminate to make sure that it is
easy to clean after staining.
Crack Resistance Test: The laminate is fixed on a stand at an angle.
It is then kept in a heated oven at 1800⁰C for 24 hours to check if laminate cracks
in extreme temperatures.
Steam Resistance: The laminate is directly exposed to hot steam
for one hour and tested for its colour fastness.
Ball Impact Resistance Test: A solid ball is thrown on to the laminate
with force to check whether the laminate cracks if anything falls on it.
It is only after the laminates clear all these tests that they are sent out to the
market. Sundek warrants that its products are devoid of any manufacturing defects
and meet the promised quality standards.
