  • 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.

Displays form a key part of the automotive human machine interface (HMI)

From advanced instrument cluster displays and digital mirrors, to center stack touchscreens and rear seat entertainment displays, the demand for interactive display technology is increasing. Traditional displays have been flat and predominately rectangular or circular for cover lenses. New designs are freeform, requiring curved surfaces, complex shapes, larger display areas and integrated functionality.

At ESI Automotive, we produce a range of films that allow seamless integration of these features. When combined with our product offering for IME, this makes ESI Automotive a single point of information for a wide range of technologies in a display stack.

Our superior expertise acquired through a long history of supplying films and electronic materials into the automotive market means we can provide design support services from film processing to circuit creation and electronic assembly processes.

Our extensive knowledge of both design and process capabilities combined with our industry leading QPS systems (XMAPP) will help you get your design right first time, reducing development time and costs.

Our state-of-the-art integrated technology allows you the design freedom to create parts which seamlessly integrate optical grade 3D formable films into a wide range of display applications.


At ESI Automotive we offer optical grade 3D formable films, electronic inks & component attach solutions to enable you to create smart display solutions from a single part incorporating a cover lens & capacitive switches to fully integrated touchscreens.


Our surface substrates can be shaped to enable seamlessly integrated displays that are instantly readable in a variety of light conditions, enabling designer’s freedom to incorporate sleek smooth contours, and blend color and texture with interior livery.


Whether you are looking to have a simple cover lens, or a fully integrated touchscreen, ESI Automotive optical grade 3D formable films allow you to incorporate deep draw features, curved displays and complex structures.
