abcr. Good Chemistry – Excellent Product Quality and High Quality Standards


We know how important reliable product quality is for our customers. Safety, purity and traceability are essential for the application of specialty chemicals in all sectors. We are aware of our holistic responsibility. High quality standards and a reliable system for quality assurance are a matter of course for us. We rely on tested and transparent procedures: 

Quality policy

Transparency, traceability and reliability characterise our services along the entire supply chain – from suppliers to the application site of chemicals. Responsibility and continuous optimisation are part of our corporate philosophy.  

 

  • Continuous process optimisation and adaptation 
  • Standardised product controls
  • Special analysis procedures upon customer request
  • Varied analysis methods with modern measurement devices
  • Modular service programme abcr care 

International or European regulations for specialty chemicals are the foundation of our services. Adherence to the following stipulated regulations is strictly verified:

  • Chemicals Prohibition Ordinance
  • REACH Ordinance (Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006)
  • CLP Ordinance (Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008)
  • Dual-Use Ordinance (Regulation (EC) No. 428/2009) 
  • Precursors Control Act (Regulation (EC) No. 273/2004 and (EC) No. 111/2005)
  • Ozone Ordinance (Regulation (EC) No. 1005/2009)
  • PIC Ordinance (Regulation (EC) No. 649/2012)

Quality assurance

We secure our internal processes and the quality of products and services with high standards. Product control, process control, monitoring of our logistics processes and traceability via software-supported documentation provide a reliable basis.


Product control: Do you quickly want to know which substance is involved? abcr stands for quality assurance through product control provided by our analysis laboratory or our service partners upon request. Whether characterisation or preparation of chemicals – we provide clarity:  

  • Modern analysis methods
  • NMR spectroscopy for various cores (1H, 13C, 19F, 29Si, 31P, 11B) 
  • Various 2D-NMR procedures: COSY, HSQC, HMBC, NOESY.
  • GC-MS
  • Water determination by means of Karl Fischer titration
  • ICP-OES, mercury AAS
  • Content determination
  • CHN elementary analysis
  • Chloride determination (potentiometric)
  • Melting point determination 
  • REM-EDX 
  • AOX/EOX determinations
  • IR spectroscopy
  • X-ray structural analysis
  • Rotation value determination
  • Particle size distribution
  • Viscosity determination 

Process control: We guarantee the security and quality of our processes via audit trail & QM clearance. We are continuously providing further training for our employees as we perform internal and external audits.   

  • Creation of customer-specific work processes and instructions (SOP)
  • Corrective and preventative measures
  • Control and documentation for special products (abcr care)
  • Transparency through documentation of internal work processes and instructions  
  • Determination of measurement parameters for the evaluation of work efficiency, product quality and corrections
  • Supplier management with abcr process control standards  
  • Supplier audits according to customer agreements 
  • Internal audits in all departments
  • Optimisation via measurement parameters and adaptation via external customer audits  
  • Shipment release of special products via QM (care products) 
  • Process control and tracing for gapless documentation 
  • Development and documentation of new and adapted processes  
  • Support via fixed and directly responsible contact partners 

Monitoring of logistics processes:

In our logistics process, one cog engages another – smooth, precisely coordinated, according to applicable regulations and the six-eye principle. The current Ordinance on Hazardous Substances and EU ordinances according to REACH and CLP constitute the foundation of our work. All product and process data are maintained, documented and saved in our software-supported and integrated inventory control system. We thereby realise process and product security via gapless traceability of products and deliveries.
