Conserving resources with and at SAERTEX
One of the key success factors in sustainable engineering is achieving minimum weight while simultaneously maximising component quality. Both are possible using lightweight construction methods facilitated by SAERTEX products. Conventional materials such as steel, aluminium, concrete and wood are being replaced by our cutting-edge composite materials made of glass, carbon and aramid fibers, delivering a significant reduction in the consumption of fossil fuels. Environmental impact is simultaneously reduced through the consequential reduction in emissions.
Companies that make a contribution to CO2 savings with their innovative products are also committing themselves to an active policy of environmental protection. An environmental management system focused on the continuous improvement of environmental performance has been established at SAERTEX for many years. This has earned us multiple “Eco-Profit” awards. But at SAERTEX, we are doing even more. Although energy consumption at SAERTEX is already relatively low, we still endeavour to operate in the most climate-friendly way possible. Our efforts here include the calculation of our individual product and overall corporate carbon footprints for use as internal planning tools.
A quality approach from the aviation sector
Companies – like SAERTEX – that have made it their philosophy to overcome existing production and development limitations, must be prepared to be judged to the highest standards. Our company has been certified by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) in accordance with the DIN EN ISO 9001 quality assurance system since 1993. SAERTEX is also involved in certification measures over and beyond this, in line with national and international development projects. Take aircraft manufacturing for instance -- here, SAERTEX fabrics have been certified to an in-house standard since 1997, as the result of a five-year development phase.
SAERTEX has also proven itself capable of maintaining the highest standards in terms of DNV certification. The “Det Norske Type Approval Certificate” verifies the highest safety in the sector of boat and ship building.
All certificates for our composite reincforcement materials are available to you on our download page.
