A sample is taken from each production lot, and INTERMETAL stores these "reference parts"
for a minimum of 10 years (with the exception of special orders, or express request from the customer):
our management of traceability and sampling of production lots guarantee security for the user.
The fasteners, in a guaranteed steel quality grade, are tested in an independant laboratory, certfied COFRAC.
A test report certifies the characteristics corresponding to ISO 898-1 and ISO 898-2 standards for each traceability.
Moreover, concerning the ISO/TS 16949 automotive standard, we are able to deliver for each product a P.P.A.P. analysis, if requested in advance.
