Success Stories

 

Background: Friday, April 19, 2013

Competitor’s bushings failed in the field. Client is shut down due to failure. Customer is desperate for replacement parts.

The customer required 8 custom transformer bushings with a one day turnaround from order to delivery.

 

The project

A customer requested us to develop a Polyurethane compound, which could be cured in the presence of moisture without foaming. For those who are familiar with Polyurethane formulations, this is like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

 

Developing a non-toxic, soft Polyurethane compound suitable for applications involving long term skin contact.

 

The Project

Develop a Polyurethane compound with a maximum shore hardness of 5A, suitable for long term skin contact to replace a currently used silicone formulation.

 

The situation

As a custom formulator we handle many customer requests on a daily basis. Drawing from our experience we normally solve most requests very quickly and effectively. However sometimes a request arrives that offers more of a challenge.

 

The situation:

The customer was using a polyurethane compound, incorporating a mercury based catalyst, to pot connectors used under water. Stock of the existing product was running low and the customer wanted to switch to a more environmentally friendly, safer system.
