How Appli-Tec solves real world challenges

Appli-tec Dispense

The discontinuation of raw materials used in adhesive formulations is a real concern for many contractors and manufacturers. When a Massachusetts aerospace and defense contractor learned that a raw material for one of its adhesives had been discontinued, they were left scrambling to find a solution.

The contractor knew it needed a replacement material that would work with existing materials in the formulation. But they were worried that if they chose a particular material, it might be discontinued at a later date, too.

The solution? The contractor called on Appli-Tec to help source a new raw material and then create a new formulation that would meet existing specifications.
