  • Meeting directives, such as ELV REACh and RoHS continues to be essential requirements. QPS delivers on all of these needs. QPS complies with the conditions set forth in the ISO 9001: 2015.


    QPS helps automotive engineers to specify the right products in a sustainable world. The steady evolution of the program has enabled many global OEM’s to specify ever-higher performance standards and represents:

    • Approved applicators: Applying these products to a common audited standard ensures the same coating performance throughout the applicator base.
    • High performance: Exceeding the high demands for corrosion resistance and exceptionally consistent torque and tension characteristics.
    • Global consistency: Wherever ZinKlad, DecoKlad or XMAPP standards are applied, applicators know they are using the same high-performance products.

    What do we do?

    QPS flow chart

    We supply and develop QPS standards that meet and exceed OEM specifications. We validate applicators processes by conducting audits, carrying out inspections and testing the production output to make sure they meet pre-defined QPS standards and agreed technical requirements.

    We monitor and report results on a global scale to be able to service and continuously improve performance. 

    Why do we do what we do?

    We believe that we are able to assure a global consistent performance at a local level meeting the global OEM requirements with a select number of world class applicators.

    How do we do what we do?

    ESI Automotive has developed a unique Quality Performance System called QPS that tackles the challenges for high-performance automotive coatings. OEM’s can be confident that the same coatings and consistent performance are available worldwide.

Are you looking to improve the range, power, and reliability of your electric car?

Increasing the range, power and reliability of zero emission vehicles continues to be a key challenge in the widespread adoption of EVs. Typically this requires greater battery capacity or more comprehensive motor design, which not only raises the cost of the vehicle but also adds weight.

ESI Automotive is helping OEMs design more efficient and lighter electric vehicles and we are here to support you overcome the following EV challenges:


How to improve EV reliability with optimum material choices

Electric vehicles require materials that aid increasing the range, power efficiency and reliability - mainly in the electronics area. With electric products, everything is connected – through both circuitry and assembly.

We will help you find the solutions for any of your design goals, including:

  • Increasing inverter efficiency
  • Improving reliability of solder joints
  • Mitigation of thermal management concerns

Choosing the best combination of these materials could result in the use of fewer batteries, or extend range. We understand that this is an industry-wide challenge and ultimately can reduce vehicle manufacturing costs.


Powered by reliability to improve electric vehicle power electronics

With the EV market growing at a rapid pace, manufacturing challenges also arise. As a result, it has become crucial that OEMs and Tier 1s develop the right technologies designed to enhance the performance of electric vehicles that also meet the needs of ever-connected consumers.

We offer a range of products and solutions suited to the electric vehicle industry.

  • Our electronics division provides solutions for assembly and circuitry.
  • Our industrial solutions provides processes for working with lightweight materials such as aluminum and magnesium.

Our expertise across the automotive supply chain enhances system-level solutions to the au-tomotive industry.
