“We have grown over the past couple of years, and merit status is a special recognition that is important to us and affirms our quality programs,” says Aishwarya Krishnamoorthy, Quality Manager for SCL. 

Merit status allows SCL to be rewarded with less frequent audit schedules, and associated costs. Krishnamoorthy says it demonstrates the aerospace industry's trust in SCL’s independent testing services.

SCL has been a Nadcap accredited laboratory since 2008 and A2LA- ISO17025 accredited since 1995. It has a scope of testing services that covers an extensive list of chemical, metallography, and mechanical testing methods such as salt fog testing, cleanliness, elemental analysis, spectroscopy, wet chemistry, microhardness, thickness, abrasion, adhesion, and failure investigations.
