  • 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.

As the quantity of electronics grows in vehicles, attention to space and overall cost becomes a constant consideration

Combined with specific functions, this is forcing significant changes to vehicle architecture and overall design.   

It is a passion for efficiency and differentiation that intrigues designers to seek alternate methods. Enhanced product performance for an individual system or the car itself requires specialized starting materials.  

For advanced safety systems, this can include a high frequency printed circuit board material for accurate function of a radar sensor or a 5G antenna. It could even include the use of a molded plastic to create a brand recognized headlight or a smaller camera. The possibilities are endless.  

Our solutions allow designers to incorporate new materials to differentiate in function and style.

Are you interested in changing your vehicle architecture? Do you lack space to get this executed? Are you investigating alternate materials to achieve a specific performance requirement?
