Connector Cleaners, Sealants & Adhesives

 

Connectors, along with their manufacturing processes and applications, often require environmentally friendly specialty cleaners, sealants, and adhesives. Cleaners have multiple applications for the removal of organic contaminates and debris during the manufacturing processes such as stamping, plating and assembly. Adhesives are used for mechanical joining while sealants are used for protection from gasses, liquids, and solids. The chemical systems used to accomplish this must be compatible with all of the other materials used and must adhere to strict safety, health, and environmental regulations.
