Diacopars laboratory is the source of product developments with more than 200 annual formulations which are going to become products for different industries and activities. We are open to new ideas and would examine the application of each idea. Underwater dry industrial coatings, very hard and durable coatings and fireproof coatings are some of the noble ideas that became new products in Diacopars.
Diacopars laboratory formulates industrial and protective, decorative, wood paint and coatings and other related products in this field. All products should pass the standard examinations and the laboratory analyzes processes before release. We are not going to present our 6000 customers with unsafe and bad quality products. The laboratory always searches and applies the latest technology to produce the best product.
Testing and Calibration Laboratories
ISO/IEC 17025 enables laboratories to demonstrate that they operate competently and generate valid results, thereby promoting confidence in their work both nationally and around the world.
It also helps facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies by generating wider acceptance of results between countries. Test reports and certificates can be accepted from one country to another without the need for further testing, which in turn improves international trade.
The first edition of this standard (1990) followed ISO/IEC Guide 25 and EN 45001 and has now been replaced. The first edition includes all obligations. Second edition reviewed the first one and chose better obligations. Laboratories for quality systems and credits of their products apply this standard.
Applying this international standard would ease the integration of information, experiences and synchronize the executive methods. Laboratories with ISO 17025 automatically certified ISO 9001. ISO 17025 makes calibration with other countries easy and the business could expand to other countries.
This standard includes two parts: management obligations and technical obligations. Fulfilling both means to be certified. Each part has special operational and implementation methods and processes. Laboratories should apply all frameworks.
ISO/IEC 17025 certified laboratory characteristics:
- Expert and energetic human resources
- Standard laboratory environment
- Using certified exam methods
- Fully equipped with the best and latest technology tools and testing systems
- Capable of measuring international standards
- Capable to receive, keep and deliver samples
- Exact methods of measuring and quality control
- Publishing reports of acquired standards for the customers
The laboratory staff have special duties and should have proper education, skills and abilities.
