QUALITY


Systematic and reliable high quality are key for Dana-Seals. And we have taken a range of important steps to ensure that we constantly meet or exceed our customers’ expectations.

In-house processes ensure quality at every step
To maintain our position as one of the market's highest quality providers, we use our more than 45 years of experience and maintain our own Danish facilities with production, R&D and test lab facilities. Based on our stringent quality assurance systems, every task is performed in-house: purchasing, mixing of powder, isostatic moulding, sintering, CNC machining, finishing processes, continuous quality control and packing. This ensures the highest possible quality and traceability in everything we do.

All parameters are taken into consideration in a Dana-Seals solution. Through continuous process improvement and staff development, we strive to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. Based on your needs and usage, our experienced R&D team will select and create the optimum material composition and seal design to achieve the desired functionality and the right properties.

Best practice
We constantly strive to improve our production in order to meet the requirements of even the toughest customer at competitive and competitive prices. We learn from every solution we design, and implement best practice and new knowledge from one customer to the next. This means our solutions get better and better, and comply with increasingly demanding requirements from around the world. We strive to give our customers the best possible solution at all times.

Solid documentation
The full production line for each order is registered along with the quality assurance registration.
Upon request, we can provide an SIR (sample inspection report), and for each order, we can provide a declaration of compliance. Material physical properties reports can also be issued upon request. Furthermore, we can document the vast majority of features. Please contact us if you require certificates or external tests.

Dana-Seals A/S manufactures specific materials which are compatible with food contact and meet all requirements of European Regulation EU 1935/2004. Furthermore, our materials also meet the requirements set out in EU regulation No. 10/2011/EC as amended by regulations No. 321/2011/EC, No. 1282/2011/EC and No. 1183/2012/EC on plastic material and articles intended to come into contact with food, in accordance with the required test conditions.

Working to eliminate hazardous substances and chemicals
In an ever-evolving high-tech world, many products are discarded and end up in landfills, ultimately causing environmental and human health hazards. Dana-Seals wants to do its part to protect human health and the environment from the risks posed by chemicals. All our PTFE products therefore, comply with the two European Union directives: REACH and RoHS

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals)
REACH applies to all chemical substances; not only those used in industrial processes, but also in our day-to-day lives, for example in cleaning products, paints as well as in articles, such as clothes, furniture and electrical appliances. Therefore, the regulation has an impact on most companies across the EU.

The RoHS (‘Restriction of Hazardous Substances’) bans a range of substances that are present in electrical equipment, e.g. lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE), bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).
