After undergoing a detailed validation audit, FMi Chemical, Inc. has been validated as an Authorized Repackager for Momentive™ Performance Materials' range of sealants, compounds, and coatings for aerospace and industrial manufacturing applications. According to Momentive, the audit consisted of reviewing FMi Chemical’s accreditations and certifications, current and future capabilities, and validation of process and procedures, manufacturing operations, quality control/assurance, product handling and identification, and supply chain management.
As a trusted materials and services provider to the aerospace industry, FMi Chemical holds accreditation for laboratory testing from the ANAB® under ISO/IEC 17025:2005, and accreditation for nonmetallic materials testing from the Nadcap® Management Council. FMi is also ISO 9001:2008 and AS 9100C registered. In combination with its OEM-authorized repackaging services, FMi Chemical offers end-user manufacturers materials that are truly ready-to-work when they reach the shop floor; certified to specific engineering parameters and packaged for efficient, timely application.
“We are proud of this authorization, and we value our long-standing business relationship with Momentive,” says Nancy Daigle, FMi Director of Operations and Finance. Daigle goes on to explain that Momentive products are top sellers for FMi, particularly the popular RTV 157 and 159 silicone sealants.
RTV (Room-Temperature Vulcanizing) adhesive sealants are a staple of aerospace manufacturing and MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul). According to FMi, while these sealants undergo stringent quality control measures at the OEM facility, some aerospace manufacturers require additional tests and certifications depending on how products are to be applied to aircraft and components in the field. FMi can test sealants for peel strength, nonvolatile content, tack-free time, extrusion rate, specific gravity, and much more, then, package these sealants in convenient containers, such as the widely used Semco® pneumatic caulking gun cartridges.
“We make our customers’ work and processes easier,” says Daigle, “Additional certification of products and production-ready packaging helps customers maintain their quality and safety standards for finished goods, and improves manufacturing efficiency, inventory management, and cost control. Now, as a certified Authorized Repackager for Momentive, we are in an even stronger position to market and add value to their outstanding product lines.”
