Case Studies

High End Audio Systems

Application: High end automotive audio systems
Problem: Bond to low surface energy substrates (E Coat)
Project start: Mid-1996
Initial phases: review customer product design, concurrently design a new epoxy adhesive to bond to substrate, be compatible with in-house designed dispensing equipment and work within fast curing inductive heating process, and be compatible with automated assembly equipment.
• 15-20 sample submittals
• 2-3 year qualification process
• Mereco solved the problem
Product life:  13+ years. Now formulating to meet second generation requirements utilizing new extremely low surface energy substrates
