UCT is also an ISO 14001:2015 certified company, practising processes keeping in mind their environmental impact and putting in place systems that aid recycling and reducing wastes, which in-turn reduces cost and improves efficiency within the organisation. In addition, UCT also holds a RoHS compliance certificate, which restricts the use of certain hazardous substances.
The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). These restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing or disposal. The tubes are manufactured to stringent Indian and International standards, and are suitable for different applications such as air conditioning, refrigeration, plumbing, medical gas and general engineering.
The tubes are manufactured to meet the exact mechanical and chemical properties as specified by standards such as ASTM B280/ ASTM B68/ ASTM B75/ JIS H3300/ IS 2501, ensuring that the tube does not fail due to leakage or fatigue. Tubes manufactured are continuously tested for defects by Eddy current test units as per ASTM E243.
