A global vehicle brand was entering a new market segment. They were unable to create a significant performance differentiator in terms of durability and reliability. Traditional seal designs could not pass a very demanding water submersion test.
Provide an excluder seal that could pass the test while allowing automated assembly.
- A novel press fit "canned" wiper fully overmolded utilizing advanced urethane.
- Darcoid’s Performance Creep controls adopted, assuring predictable seal performance regardless of influences inside and outside the supply chain
The custom design enabled the full assembly to outperform the competition, giving the brand the competitive edge they needed for a successful product launch.
