QUALITY & SAFETY
Product Testing and Certificates of Analysis with Every Order
We regard quality and safety as our overriding concerns. Quality issues drive our production as attested to by the long-term loyalty of our customer base. We have an extensive testing and record-keeping regimen.
In 2015 Hero Coatings engaged in the ISO quality management process as it applies to our adhesive and other coating products. After an onsite audit it was determined that all of our systems fully comply with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015
Every lot of product from Hero Coatings is physically tested and shipped with a certificate of analysis to assure conformance with customer specification. Our facility has undergone quality audits by numerous Fortune 500 companies. We welcome quality audits by any company expecting to do business with us.
We operate a Class 1 fire protection manufacturing facility with a total flood-CO2-fire suppression system that assures minimum plant damage and rapid restart in the event of an accident. We take great pride in our outstanding, accident free safety record.
Our environmental systems meet all federal and state regulations. We have a 25-ton air permit with additional permit capacity.
With Safety and Quality being the top priorities of Hero Coatings, we have undergone major investments in the following areas.
- Above ground solvent storage
- New process safety
- State of the art Quality Control Lab
- Hot Melt Manufacturing
The two above ground bulk storage tanks replaced our underground storage tanks. These state of the art double wall storage tanks ensure the safest possible storage of our solvents.
Our inert gas blanketing system uses a nitrogen generator to sweep and purge our mixing vessels during the production process. This process improvement helps to ensure the safety of our employees and facility, so we can continue to deliver a consistent product.
Our state of the art lab is equipped with all the testing equipment required for us to work with you on your next project and qualify every pound of adhesive made.
Our VOC free Hot Melt adhesives offer customers a greater variety of products with the same quality service and industry knowledge. Our lab is equipped with the testing abilities to help you bring a new product to market.
