Element laboratories in California and Spain added to Bombardier ASL

Element Materials Technology has announced that two more of its laboratories have been added to Bombardier’s Approved Supplier List (ASL), in California and Spain.

The laboratories at Huntington Beach in California and Seville, Spain have been approved to perform metallic and non-metallic materials testing as part of the company’s supply chain in Europe and North America.

The approval has expanded the company’s services which are available to Bombardier and its supply chain across the two continents, and the company has already received testing orders from strategic Bombardier suppliers, such as MHI Canada Aerospace.

Rick Sluiters, executive vice president of Aerospace at Element, said: “This is an exciting time for Bombardier as it begins to ramp up its Global 7000 and 7500 program, and we’re looking forward to continuing to support the company as it brings some of the world’s most important and safest aircraft to the skies.”

Testing carried out at the laboratories includes tests such as high cycle fatigue and low cycle fatigue dynamics testing, tensile, hardness and impact static testing, metallography and chemical analysis.
