Krayden partnered with Dow and a leading manufacturer of hosing, tubing, ducting and electronic components to develop multiple bonding solutions for a large Transit customer in a major metropolitan area. What was unique was the fact that we collectively found one material, Dow EA-7100, to solve three solutions, saving time and money.
