Focused on Quality

Ash Resources is a listed company for Quality Management in terms of ISO 9001.

Our reputation for reliable quality performance comes from a track record built up over thirty years. Our name is respected internationally for technical competence and as producers of some of the world’s best quality fly ash products.

In 2012, our Matla plant was the first local fly ash production facility to be formally certified by the SABS for compliance with the new SANS 50450-1 specifications governing the use of   fly ash in concrete. This was closely followed by official certification of our Lethabo and Majuba plants.

Our Technical Services

Ash Resources works closely with all players in the construction chain to understand the needs of their projects and provide appropriate products together with first class supporting logistical and technical backup services.  Our Technical Department has two prime functions:

  • Customer technical service: we aim to assist our customers with any help they need on technical product and other areas of support. This includes customer materials evaluations to determine suitability for the intended applications, e.g. high tech cementitious applications, formulations for specific binders, mining applications and cementitious based materials evaluations.
  • Quality Department: the Department oversees our quality management system (ISO 9001) and all product quality related matters, which includes production testing, despatch testing and statistical conformance testing in accordance with the SANS 50450 specification. Our quality management system (QMS) is regularly audited internally and externally to continually improve the system and maintain customer satisfaction.

The Ash Resources technical team is fully supported by:

  • The unique technical and laboratory resources of Lafarge South Africa’s Quality Department Southern Africa (QDSA). Based at Industria, Johannesburg, QDSA operates one of the largest and most respected SANAS (South African National Accreditation System) Accredited Civil Engineering testing facilities in South Africa.  Complying with ISO/IEC 17025, the facility has a proud seventeen-year track record of continuous accreditation.
  • The unparalleled technical resources of the international Lafarge group, which operates the world’s largest building materials research and development facilities.

We apply our technical strength to continual innovation of new products and services. Examples of this are:

  • The highly successful introduction of DuraPozz®Pro. Developed at our Matla Plant in close cooperation with Eskom, the product achieves even higher reactivity and lower carbon residual.
  • SuperPozz®Pro™ was designed to meet the need for an ultra-fine fly ash used in the formulation of high performance, high durability concrete.
  • The Plasfill® range of multi-functional fillers that have many technical and economic advantages over traditional fillers used in the polymer and rubber industries.
  • Semi-automatic tanker loading systems, combined with safe loading platforms for tanker drivers, to offer customers quicker tanker turnaround times.
