Electrolube achieves global aerospace standard AS 9100
Electrochemicals manufacturer Electrolube has been awarded the AS 9100 internationally recognised Quality Management System standard, specific to the aerospace, aviation and defence industries. The standard is supported and adhered to by major aerospace OEMs and is increasingly being required by customers and end users.
AS 9100 is based on the ISO 9001:2008 quality management global standard. It provides 80 additional requirements and 18 amplifications specific to aerospace business operations, which satisfy DOD, NASA and FAA quality requirements. The standard recognises Electrolube’s manufacturing and service capabilities that address the aerospace industry’s demands for safe products that meet and, wherever possible, exceed the requirements of customers and all regulatory authorities.
The majority of aerospace electronics will be exposed to significant amounts of vibration, extreme variations in operating temperature (depending on whether the electronics are situated in cabin or non-heated areas), as well as the prospect of exposure to cleaning chemicals, de-icing fluids and more. Electrolube provides its commercial and military aerospace customers with rigorously tested electronics protection products that are designed to operate in harsh environments.
The Electrolube product range includes conformal coatings, encapsulation resins, thermal management materials, cleaning and preparation chemicals, thermal management materials, service and maintenance products, and contact lubricants that satisfy requirements for the protection of aerospace electronics and associated controls. Many of the company’s products meet strict Underwriters Laboratory standards for flame retardancy, as well as European and American military specifications.
With manufacturing sites in its home in the UK as well as China and India, Electrolube has been widely recognised globally with accreditations from the Quality Management System – ISO 9001, the Environmental Management System – ISO 14001, the Occupational Health & Safety Management System – OHSAS 18001, the Automotive standard – IATF 16949 and now the Aviation, Space and Defence standard – AS 9100.
“Electrolube has served the aerospace market for decades with its established electrochemicals expertise,” said Electrolube Managing Director Ron Jakeman. “Achieving the AS 9100 certification is an important milestone for us.
“It validates our own standards as a company to provide the highest levels of quality and customer care possible, and assures our aerospace customers of the highest level of service in the development and delivery of reliable, high-performance electronics protection solutions.”
