Current Product:

Mold Release for Automotive Molded Carpet

Objective:

Find a quick solution for an automotive molded carpet manufacture that had lost its supplier.

Process:

Results:

From the initial phone call to the time we shipped, the process took one week. The customer ended up selecting which product worked best. We then sent larger samples for further testing. Further testing was proven to be successful, and we converted the customer over to our product.
