Quality and R&D
Alfatherm’s laboratories support the technical-commercial staff trough a customer service aimed at implementing and adapting our products to fulfill customer’s’ projects in the product development and in the quality control methods. Thanks to our pilot equipment, we perform tests to evaluate these new products from the physical, chemical and aesthetic point of view, following the major international and national regulations, by providing, if necessary, specific methods of assessment tailored to the needs of our customers.
All our products are compliant with European and International standards and are available for different applications. In 1991, Alfatherm. was one of the first companies in Italy to obtain the Certification in Production Process in the field of CALENDERING PLASTIC MATERIALS in compliance with the UNI EN ISO 9001 normative.

Our aim for each product is to ensure the quality standard expected by the customer is reached, both in small and large-scale production, focusing on three basic factors, such as competence, technology and service represented by:
- The wide experience of Alfatherm staff.
- Careful research into the techniques and equipment required for transforming raw materials into industrial products for various areas of application.
- Strict management of corporate processes, combined with organisational flexibility to fulfil customer expectations.
- An excellent service model, complying with UNI EN ISO 9001.
