Contract Manufacturer Using Electronic Potting Compound Partners with Epic Resins for Quality

Epic Resins Builds Long Term Partnership Working in Conjunction With Overseas Contract Manufacturer and North American OEM Design Staff

A contract manufacturer in China was experiencing problems with their current electronic potting compound used in automotive control module production. The contract manufacturer was facing quality issues due to inconsistencies in the potting compound they were receiving, greatly affecting productivity. The contract manufacturer was unable to work with such a poor quality potting compound and was not receiving any help from the current supplier to resolve the material and processing issues. Due to the electronic potting compound quality issues, the OEM was experiencing long lead times which were disrupting production. On top of these potting compound quality issues, these manufacturers were overpaying. After receiving no help from their current supplier to resolve these issues, the contract manufacturer turned to Epic Resins for a solution.
