NSF International Certifies 500 Sheet Metal Auto Body Parts
May 2, 2014—NSF International has certified 500 different sheet metal hoods and fenders from Gordon Auto Body Parts Co. through its NSF Automotive Collision Replacement Parts Certification Program.
The parts include more than 700 vehicle models, covering more than 20,000 vehicle applications.
Requirements for NSF certification are based on the sheet metal parts being made of materials equivalent to that of the OE manufacturer service parts and must meet standards of performance, fit, function, dimension, strength, thickness, adhesion for coatings, packaging, and in-plant quality control.
Parts are independently reviewed and tested against OE service parts and all hoods and fenders were fitted to vehicles to ensure proper fit.
