Automotive

At automobile industry sector continuous quality enhancement is a permanent challenge for developement of new products and control of their quality. Increasing quality demands a more and more complex testing system.
Quality characteristics with high importance are the emission behaviour of car interior materials as well as its resistance and ageing behaviour.
CC Automotive and its Division Car Interior Material Testings has a long time competence and expert knowledge of this testing subjects.
We are one of the biggest contractors for automotive emission tests in Europe. Testings according to manufacturers` norms (as: Audi, BMW, DaimlerChrysler, GM, Jaguar, Porsche, RR, Saab, Toyota, Volvo, VW and many more) belong to our standard program as well as generally accepted methods according to VDA, DIN, EN or ISO.

Beside the European norms and regulations, CC Automotive offers testings according to US standard methods like the Californian Air Resources Board (CARB) as well.

Among the OEM norms, the PB VWL 709 (VDA 278) of DaimlerChrysler has to be emphasized. This method allows extensive statements about the roots of the emissions and is therefore very helpfull for the process of developing and improving new products.
