We have our own laboratory for common testing items, and two cooperated labs for regularly authoritative inspection. All extruded plastic profiles are in line with the Chinese standard and the European Standard, for KAXITE series, the performance is rather higher than the standard value.

Due to the great progress and high performance, we were invited as the earliest member of the Chinese National Standard Committee, after years of development, we became the leader of the Chinese National Standard Committee (for revising of GB/T 23615.1-2009).

For the constructional plastic profiles, we do the production and experiment in accordance with the standards below:

  • GB/T 23615.1-2009 Accessorial material for architectural aluminum alloy profiles -- Part 1: Thermal barrier strip of polyamide
  • EN 14024-2004 Metal profiles with thermal barrier -- Mechanical performance Requirement, proof and tests for assessment
  • YS/T 437-2008 Aluminium profiles moment of inertia calculation methods and computing software requirements
  • JG/T 174-2005 Thermal barrier strips for construction industry
  • GB 5237.6 -2012 Wrought aluminium alloy extruded profiles for architecture -- Part 6: Thermal barrier profiles
  • GB/T 8478-2008 Aluminium windows and doors
  • GB/T 8484-2008 Graduation and test for thermal insulating properties of doors and windows
  • JG 175-2011 Insulating aluminum alloy profiles with thermal barrier for buildings
  • UL94 Standard for Tests for Flammability of Plastic Materials for Parts in Devices and Appliances
  • ASTM E84 Standard Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials
  • NFPA 285 Standard Fire Test Method for Evaluation of Fire Propagation Characteristics of Exterior Non-Load-Bearing Wall Assemblies Containing Combustible Components

Actually, the Chinese standard GB/T 23615.1-2009 has more testing items than the European standard. Further more, we can realize extreme high performance values for customers. According to all of these, we can do the experiment items like below:

Notes: 1. Samples shall be dried in the temperature of 140℃ for 6 hours to ensure the water content ≤0.2%.
2. Room temperature means (23±2)℃ and (50±10)% relative humidity
3. The requirements marked with "a" meaning of the value is only suitable for shape-I thermal barrier strips, technical requirements of other kinds of thermal barriers should be discussed and specified by both suppliers and purchasers.
