Research and Quality

Aliplast has a state-of-the-art in-house lab, equipped with the best instruments, and a highly specialized technical staff. This set-up permits us to continuously monitor every batch of recycled product, and to perfectly ensure the highest pre-set quality standards. Thanks to a certified management system and the most highly advanced material treatment technologies, all the processing procedures can undergo the most rigorous and constant checks in every stage.
