Laboratory services

ARBZ is a unique enterprise in Kazakhstan producing high quality differentially heat-strengthened rails and sections, having its own Central Plant Laboratory (CPL). 

The Central Plant laboratory (CPL) for assessment of rail and sections quality were put into operation, CPL was accredited in the Accreditation system of the Republic of Kazakhstan for compliance with requirements of
GOST/IEC 17025-2019 (GOST/IEC 17025:2017) General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.

The CPL received the right to use the ILAC MRA laboratory combined mark, which ensures international recognition of test results in 75 European countries of this association.

Central Plant Laboratory includes :

  • Chemical Analysis Laboratory;
