Xingfa Aluminium is the formulator of national standards and has one state accredited laboratory
Xingfa Aluminium actively participates in and leads the drafting and formulation of the international standard, national standard and industry standard of the aluminium alloy profile industry, which include “Aluminum Alloy Building Profile” GB5237.1, “Industrial aluminium or aluminium alloy extrusion profile” GB/T6892, etc. With the implementation of the company's new product development strategy, we formulate the enterprise standards such as “refrigerated container aluminium alloy profiles” Q/XCNB10.04-2002 (China non-ferrous metal standard committee register No. YSQB00219) and “subway train conductive aluminium alloy profiles” Q/XCNB10.03-2002 (China non-ferrous metal standard committee register No. YSQB00220). These standards greatly enrich the system of national standards and industry standards,and standardize, guide and strictly control the inspection and acceptance of the new products.
The company makes out strict and detail technology document for the production procedures and quality control standards. The quality control standards of the company are higher than the national standards. The achievement of our quality control and quality management is remarkable. The company has passed ISO9000 quality system authentication, military industrial quality control system authentication and obtained the highest honor of quality by winning the gold medal, platinum medal and diamond medal ets in the “quality star of the world” selection.
The company put great attention on the construction of quality inspection and ability. It is the only company that has the state accredited laboratory and physical and chemical test centre, which could issue authorized test report. Its test items widely include the material metallographic composition, mechanical properties, raw and auxiliary materials, profile surface film performance, procedure technology control and realize the close loop quality control over the purchase of raw and auxiliary aluminium alloy material, production links and the inspection and acceptance of new products.
According to the regulations of China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS), the test report issued by Xingfa physical and chemical testing centre is approved by all the certificate authorities located in the countries and regions which are the signatories of Mutual Recognition Arrangement, and could use the certificate mark of CNAS national laboratory and the ILAC union mark which is internationally mutually recognizedent protection, beauty and are of superior cost performance.

The technology research achievements of the R&D center obtained many science and technology rewards by the governments of all levels. The technology integration and application of energy save, environment protection and safety in Guangzhou subway line 2, which Xingfa take part in the development process, received the second prize of national science and technology progress; the project achievement of “conductive aluminium alloy profiles for subway train” which Xingfa was in charge of, received the second prize of Guangdong provincial science and technology progress and the first prize of Foshan municipal science and technology progress. The high-quality aluminium alloy profiles for refrigerated container successfully developed by the company were selected as the new important products of the country. The new technology of ultra-strength aluminium alloy profiles series 2 and 7 and it process technology received the third prize of Guangdong provincial science and technology progress and the first prize of Foshan municipal science and technology progress.
Taking the development trend of national building business into consideration, the R&D center launches to the market constantly various new products of aluminium alloy doors and windows, and curtain wall structure of excellent performance. It concentrates on the popularization of the new heat-insulating and energy-saving product including glue-injected sliding doors and windows series 2005, Xingfa Winger TM doors and windows.
