sgs-iso-9001-color

UNI EN ISO
9001:2015

River is in possession of an ISO 9001 / UNI EN ISO 9001:2015certification, for the production of cookware, homeware, and semi-finished non-stick aluminum products.

Cross
Cut test

Allows for measurement of the non-stick coatings’ adhesion to an aluminum underlayer, through an incision (cross cut) on the painted surface. The test can be run on both plain pieces and printed, spray-painted, or rolled ones.

Abrasion
Test

t’s used to determine wear resistance of a cooking implement (pot or pan) or of its semi-finished products, covered in non-stick coating. Abrasion is applied through a Scotch Brite 3M pad.

LGA
Abrasion test

It’s used on customer demand in order to determine wear resistance of a cooking implement (pot or pan) covered in non-stick coating. Abrasion is applied through a mixture of corundum sandpaper, stainless steel bearings, and water.

Corrosion
Test

Non-stick coatings for homeware (pots and pans) are exposed to wet heat and vapors for long periods of time. This method allows for evaluation of the coatings’ resistance to long-term cyclical exposition to boiling salted water and steam.

Non-stick
Test

Il non-stick test monitors the coating’s non-stick quality. It is conducted by pouring milk inside the cooking implement, and bringing it to maximum temperature until it chars. By using a nylon spatula, the charred milk film should detach.

Washing Machine
Test

Through a series of high-temperature washing machine cleaning cycles, the non-stick’s resistance to the aggressiveness of chemical agents contained in detergents, and to steam during the drying process, are tested.
