Adhesives & Sealants Headlines


DEK and Dow Corning recently signed an equipment alliance in an effort to maximize customer service. It is envisaged that both sets of clients will benefit from the alliance through time and cost savings. DEK USA's vice president and general manager, Craig Brown, commented on the agreement, "We have a long-standing relationship with Dow Corning and are confident of making this alliance work. Dow Corning has been in existence for over 60 years, and we're delighted that they approached us to become one of their key external equipment suppliers. The alliance benefits both companies equally, and essentially we're aiming for DEK's equipment to reach an even wider audience in mass-imaging applications." The alliance will see Dow Corning concentrating on streamlining the integration of materials and equipment used in board-level assembly and back-end packaging, and DEK was chosen because of its expertise in stencil printing, as well as its long-standing relationship with Dow Corning.
