  • 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.

Enhanced reliability of ADAS components

The trend to remove human dependence and still produce a safer journey forces the car industry to utilize the most stringent testing of any market segment  



Removing the driver can only be achieved through addition of electronic decision making or artificial intelligence. The industry must ensure that these systems are reliable. Our innovative materials and chemical processes address the ever-changing reliability requirements of the automotive market. We have products that were specifically designed in collaboration with car makers in response to industry expectations.  

Do car maker’s specifications push you to a higher range of thermal cycle durations? Is heat and vibration exposing limitations in material resilience? Our history as a global supplier for the automotive space brings high reliability needs in harsh environments to the forefront of our development efforts. We fully comprehend that the right material choices will positively impact performance.

Our innovations will help the automotive supply chain realize greater reliability in all aspects of the electronic builds. This ranges from enhanced performance offered in surface finish and copper plating technology for the printed circuit board to extending product life with our patented, high reliability solder alloy. These simple changes will advance designs today. We are positioned for the future when the inevitable move to more advanced packages will necessitate our adhesive technology or the use of a conductive die attach to promote faster heat removal from the die to extend life.
