Assessing restricted substance content in surface treatment specifications
Guest speaker: Laura Wilkinson from Rolls-Royce
Watch this webinar to find out how access to data from SAE will help you identify which substances are contained in surface treatment specifications in order to comply with product reporting requirements, or to avoid risk during product design.
What you will learn
- Understand why in-house and industry specifications are important to Rolls-Royce in assessing risk driven by substance regulation
- Learn how you can manage your materials information plus substance, specification, and coatings data, and stay up-to-date with changing regulations
- Discover how to apply this knowledge to de-risk your material and processes, and to enable design for compliance
- Find out how to access Surface Treatment Specifications from SAE using Granta tools
- Hear about best practice developed through the EMIT Consortium and how this experience is used by world-leading organizations.
Product stewards and material and process experts must identify which substances are contained in surface treatment specifications in order to comply with product reporting requirements or to avoid risk during product design. They can now benefit from a new connection between the GRANTA MI software and data on Surface Treatment Specifications from SAE. This results from a partnership between Granta, IHS, and SAE. Each record contains a small amount of data from the full Standard and is linked to related coatings, materials, or substances in the Granta database. Users can also follow links to the full SAE Standard, available via the online IHS Standards Expert product.
This enhancement was identified as a key requirement by members of the Environmental Materials Information Technology (EMIT) Consortium. It is a collaborative project that develops and applies information technology solutions to enable product design and development in the context of environmental objectives and regulations. These solutions are centred on information and decisions relating to materials and processes. The members are Airbus Helicopters, Airbus Defense & Space, Boeing, Emerson Electric, GKN Aerospace, Honeywell, NASA, NPL, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce, Sandia National Labs, and US Army Research Labs. Members use the GRANTA MI:Restricted Substances software to assess and avoid risk. The latest version of this software will be demonstrated during the web seminar.
