Production is hard - will “Performance Creep” be a wrench in your works?

A critical part of your program’s success is making sure the seal that gets assembled in your product 4 or 5 years from now performs the same as the seal you qualify for production release.  Small omissions or assumptions in your control specs can create major headaches in the future..  Darcoid Applications Engineers will teach you how to control Seal Performance Creep so you can rest easy and focus on developing your next great thing!
