Chomarat North America achieves AS 9100 certification
The new certification covers aerospace quality management systems and follows Chomarat Group’s development strategy relative to quality and risk management.
Chomarat North America (Williamston, SC, US), the Chomarat Group’s (Le Cheylard, France) US facility specializing in Advanced Composites reinforcements, announced May 28 it has been awarded AS 9100 certification. The new certification covers aerospace quality management systems and follows the Group’s development strategy relative to quality and risk management.
With this certification, Chomarat North America follows in the footsteps of the Group’s French plants that were certified to ES 9100 in 2012. The facility now meets the strict criteria set by the market for high performance composites reinforcements for the aerospace industry.
The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
Oven-cured, vacuum-bagged prepregs show promise in production primary structures.
Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) replacing coated steel in more reinforced-concrete applications.
