  • 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.

Automotive interior applications require a variety of key performance characteristics to meet both aesthetic and functional requirements

With a range of films that meet the specifications of automotive manufacturers worldwide, supported by our industry leading XMAPP QPS system, we have both innovative materials and unrivaled expertise to help you develop high performance products.

Whether you are looking for a 'touch' application such as capacitive switching, a 'see' application such as a driver information display, or a 'touch and see' application such as a fully integrated touch screen, our XtraForm range of high-performance automotive films is a design enabler.

From 2D parts to deep draw 3D formed parts with tight radii, our hardcoated XtraForm range of automotive films have durability for high-wear areas of the vehicle cockpit. Available in high gloss or antiglare finishes, our films also give the optical performance you need in various light conditions. This range of films is also complemented by printable texturing lacquers to produce a variety of finishes across a single part.

For parts with attached printed electronic sensors, our Autostat range of heat-stabilised polyesters provide an ideal substrate choice, whilst our XtraForm range is ideal for in-mold electronics (IME).
