Meridian Adhesives Group recently announced that its Electronics Division will begin serving the electric vehicle (EV) market with custom solutions. The division currently encompasses three companies: Epoxy Technology, Inc., Billerica, Mass.; Epoxies, Etc., Cranston, R.I.; and Epoxy Technology Europe, with offices in the UK, Germany, and Switzerland. Together, the companies will provide the rapidly emerging EV market with products such as thermally conductive potting compounds and adhesives, potting and encapsulating compounds, UL-listed 94 V-O potting compounds, UV-curable coatings and adhesives, and circuit and assembly adhesives.
In addition to the many products already available, Meridian reports that the division’s engineers and chemists can formulate unique, custom solutions for electric vehicle and battery manufacturing for applications such as sealing aggressive chemicals in battery fabrication, dissipating heat waste from high powered motors, resisting pyrolysis and flammability with environmentally friendly raw materials, and meeting the reliability standards of automotive-grade electronics. Many of these solutions are part of an extensive quality program, including ISO 9001:2015 and MIL-STD 883/5011 certifications, as well as Sony Green Partnerships, RoHS, and REACH Compliance.
“Our Electronics team has been building a specialized portfolio of products and capabilities to support our EV customers for some time now,” said Brandon Willis, president of Meridian’s Electronics Division. “Our products fulfill some of the most demanding applications in the industry, and I’m excited to see what new opportunities our team creates by fulfilling our core promise of delivering tangible value to our customers.”
