Cetim, the French Technical Centre of Mechanical Industries, and the Japanese company KMTL (Kobe Material Testing Laboratory), have decided to work together in technical area of characterisation and testing of carbon fibre reinforced polymers and ceramic matrix composites. The two have signed a technical collaboration agreement in this regard.

The two have been working together since 2017 when they signed an exploratory agreement during JEC Asia 2017. By joining forces, Cetim and KMTL have been able to offer a very wide range of expertise in the Asia Pacific region for clients to accelerate technological innovation, in particular in the aerospace sector.

The new agreement will strengthen the two companies’ mutual expertise in characterisation and testing of carbon fibre reinforced polymers and ceramic matrix composites.

“This partnership signed with KMTL confirms the close relationship we have developed over the past years which also allowed us to realise the in-depth knowledge our partner has acquired in CMC testing, among others. It also comes at a moment where we feel the commercial momentum of our joined services to our clients in the region,” says Vincent Caulet, global aeronautics and automotive market manager at Cetim.

“With Cetim’s composite testing lab (ETIM) recently awarded Golden NADCAP Merit Status, with the European largest range of Non Metallic Tests Codes, it just confirms our believes that Cetim is the international reference in composite testing management. The time also allowed us to better understand the wide range of expertise the organisation can offer which can benefit our clients. Beyond the European based knowledge, we also engaged successfully with Cetim’s failure analysis laboratory in Singapore (Matcor),” says Dr. Nobuhito Tsurui, director of KMTL.
