Quality Control

Our glove manufacturing background has granted us the competitive edge needed in fulfilling our clients specific requirements, without compromising on our commitment to deliver superior quality and great service to our customers.

Quality Control

Our promise for quality is not just limited internally within Apex Glove. Every year, we conduct a thorough evaluation and audit on our network of suppliers to ensure the consistency and continuous delivery of quality materials and products. Apex Glove, along with our suppliers, comply to meeting international quality standards of ASTM D3578 and EN 455. Our pre-shipped items are subjected to elaborate checks by our QA officers to ensure our customers are satisfied with their final product and packaging.

Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI)

Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is carried out when production is 100% finished and at least 80% of the products are packed. Samples are selected for checking at random according to AQL sampling standards and procedures, to ensure that finished goods conform to your specifications. The below sections and points are covered in a Pre-Shipment Inspection.
– Quantity
– Packing
– Workmanship
– Marking & Labeling
– Product Specification
– On-Site Tests
– Client Special Requirement

During Production Inspection (DPI)

DPI inspections are used to check the product early on in production and make sure that they conform to the client’s standards. As production is continued these defects can be addressed so that the defect rate for the rest of production is lowered. Also we are able to check the production schedule and confirm that the products will be ready according to your shipment schedule. Don’t let your shipment be delayed due to reworking or bad shipments.
