Meridian Adhesives Group (Dalton, Ga.) helped forge the partnership after acquiring both of the companies, which describe themselves as established companies serving the medical, electronics, automotive, aerospace and industrial markets. The partnership brings together more design engineers to work on demanding electronic and assembly bonding applications.
Epoxy Technology has a specialty in microelectronic applications, with an emphasis on halogen-free epoxies, low outgassing materials, specialty UV curable systems and ISO 10993 bio-compatible adhesives. Epoxies, Etc. meanwhile has a focus on potting and encapsulating compounds, UL 94 V-0 listed products and structural adhesives. Together, the two companies will be able to supply printed circuit board level materials, such as underfill and glob top adhesives, all the way up to potting compounds that protect the entire electronic device, according to a news release out yesterday.
Both companies have experience with convenience packaging options such as pre-mixed and frozen syringes and Triggerbond cartridges.
