Quality I (the product)
A high quality product or service is when it meets the customer's exact requirements.
Therefore, a good quality disposable hygienic absorbent product is not necessarily one that absorbs more (although in most case it does) or has more features. Rather, a high quality disposable hygienic product is one that will fulfill better its customer's expectations.
Most people will look for, protection against leakage, comfort, good value for money and availability. Others will also consider, discretion, stylishness, trendy look, and positive reinforcement to their buying decision (usually connected with well known brands or word of mouth), and more..
YNC helps clients to define the right product specifications, and to maintain consistency in producing high-quality products.
Quality II (the process)
A high quality process is an efficient and consistent one. It is the only way to ensure profitable production of high quality products.
YNC helps clients implement correct quality assurance procedures.
Usually, YNC recommends three (3) levels of product quality testing and inspection:
1. In line – Before the production is completed, automatic or manual, to reject any faulty products from entering the final package.
2. At the end of the production line – Statistical evaluations to prevent faulty products from reaching the marketplace.
3. In the Lab or a testing room – To ensure particular batches perform as specified.
YNC helps clients define the right testing procedures with simple equipment that give them the ability to predict product performance in actual use, while keeping continual track of target specifications and performance.
Typical tests used in a disposable absorbent product manufacturing plant are:
1. Absorbent capacity – The amount of liquid that can be absorbed by the product.
2. Absorbency under load - How much of the absorbed liquid is retained in the product when pressure is applied.
3. Absorbency rate (speed) – How fast liquid is absorbed by the product.
4. Re-wet – The amount of wetness that returns back to the surface when pressure is applied (also called “wetback”).
5. Distribution – How much of the product has been used during absorption, and how far the liquid has moved away from the point of discharge.
To gain a better understanding of the products performance, raw material checking and panel testing is also strongly recommended.
