Chem-Trend has been certified by the DQS (German Certification Company for Management Systems) in accordance with EN 9100:2016, fulfilling the strict quality requirements for aerospace suppliers.

Chem-Trend supplies release agents for composite materials that are used to manufacture components for interior trim as well as structural components such as vertical fins. Because the number of manufactured components made from composite materials is increasing, efficient production is becoming more and more important in aircraft construction.

“Complying with the highest quality standards has always been obligatory in the aeronautical industry,” states Dr Uwe Kaiser, Quality Manager at Chem-Trend. “And as an innovative provider of release agents for composite materials, we want to aim high, together with our customers. The certification by DQS confirms that we are also fully compliant with even stricter requirements.”

For the EN 9100:2016 certification the company demonstrated management processes that adhere to stringent requirements, such as strengthened process orientation and comprehensive documentation. The new certification supersedes Chem-Trend’s previous ISO 9001:2008 certification and replaces it with the new ISO 9001:2015 certification.

“A DQS certification assures all parties that our quality management system fulfils the technical requirements for the respective standard in their entirety,” adds Kaiser. “This also benefits clients outside of the aeronautical industry.”

Chem-Trend will exhibit on Stand D05 in Hall 7 at Composites Europe in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November.
