In 2010, All-Color went to great lengths to install a quality assurance laboratory in our facility. The lab was built, “to ensure the highest level of quality that we as a company deem important,” stated Mark Mortensen, President of All-Color.
Our quality assurance laboratory is equipped with the latest technologies to test the (ASTM) standards for hardness, color, gloss, impact, thickness, adhesion and cure. To optimize their productivity, we regularly monitor our wash systems and ovens.
Larry uses our lab to perform testing according to ASTM standards. We will continue to evolve our practices to meet and even exceed customer expectations.
