Metalor reaches milestone in quality management

Neuchâtel, 06. January 2009

The precious metal powder and flake manufacturing site of Metalor Technologies in Attleboro/USA has been certified to standard ISO/TS 16949:2002 since November 2008. This is a major step in the more than 150 years old history of the Metalor group to also meet the specific needs for the automotive and OEM industry.

The ISO/TS 16949:2002 is a technical specification in conjunction with ISO 9001:2000 defining the quality management system for design and development, production, installation and service of automotive-related products. These new requirements are proven techniques that further enhance an organization to achieve higher quality levels.

Metalor precious metal powders and flakes are produced with various particles sizes, surface areas and morphologies by chemical, electrochemical or mechanical means. They are of high purity, have well-defined particle size distributions, are highly de-agglomerated and disperse easily. They are used for electrically and thermally conductive die attach and adhesives, ceramic interconnect, low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) fabrication, passive component termination, polymer thick film (PTF), membrane touch switches (MTS), RFID antennas, printed electronic (PE) applications, photovoltaic/solar pastes, sprayable inks, formable gaskets, shielding materials and display requirements to mention just a few applications. Customized powders and flakes are developed together with the customers.
