Nadcap Accreditation AC7122-1 for Testing Aerospace and Automotive Composites

Nadcap accreditation AC7122/1 for aerospace and automotive composite materials

Nadcap accreditation grants Intertek Pittsfield laboratory recognition to test non-metallic materials, class A composite materials to support the needs the aerospace and automotive industries. The lab received Nadcap accreditation for demonstrating ongoing commitment to quality by satisfying customer requirements and industry specifications. Intertek services help reduce client risk through testing of quality composite materials and manufactured products. Without these services, aerospace manufacturing would become more risky for both composite buyers and sellers.

Composite testing expertise ranges from understanding materials to quality control and application testing, helping ensure quality throughout the entire process. Our services help manufacturers produce composites with higher quality and consistency.

Intertek’s state of the art composite testing laboratory capabilities ensure accurate data and fast turnaround times.
