Testing of Material Developments
The introduction of lightweight materials and composites is helping automobile manufacturers meet the uniform EU Directives (No. 443/2009) for reducing CO2 emissions. In order to be able to assess the processability and performance capability of these materials, the Intertek Group plc., Geleen, Netherlands, a provider of quality and safety solutions, has developed verification programs for laboratory investigations, performance studies and certifications.
These global plastics processing testing and research programs mean time savings for the automotive industry in material development, design and production. Furthermore, the programs help to identify performance, loading and manufacturing demands.
