Diamond Standard to Apply for CAPA Certification
July 30, 2014—Diamond Standard, a collision industry parts manufacturer, announced recently it will apply for CAPA certification for its automobile bumper reinforcements.
"Structural parts is a serious category which requires the diligence of the manufacturer to make certain these parts are built to a standard and tested to the performance characteristics of the OE production or service part,” said Michael O'Neal, president of Diamond Standard.
The parts currently hold independent certification in both high-strength steel and high-strength 7000 alloy aluminum. The comparative Dynamic and Quasi Static testing versus OE parts was done by MGA Design Research.
