Buyers want vehicles that are safe, affordable, and comfortable. Features like backup cameras, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot detection, and forward-collision warnings all help drivers to avoid crashes. As a result, buyers frequently consider a vehicle’s electronic displays and safety sensors when making purchasing decisions.
When a Tier 1 automotive supplier prepared to develop three different challenging electronics applications, they sought DOW’s help to find a versatile solution that would allow them to design and assemble their products quickly, cost-effectively and in compliance with high-quality standards.
The applications included a ruggedized removable display for heavy construction equipment vehicles, a high-volume seat-belt reminder (SBR) sensor for a sport utility vehicle (SUV) and an autonomous driver assistance system (ADAS). Although very different from each other, all three applications needed a reliable adhesive and sealant that would maintain or even improve the rate and cost of assembly.
