Hernon Manufacturing Receives First Order from Hyundai Heavy Industries

During a recent trip to South Korea, Hyundai Heavy Industries endorsed the use of Hernon products in their manufacturing processes and placed their first order

Sanford, FL., April 30, 2012 - Hernon Manufacturing, the innovator in adhesives, sealants and dispensing equipment, has received approval from the Senior Vice President of Hyundai Heavy Industries, G.H. Lee, to move forward with the use of product for the Elevator Division.

"We are pleased to learn about the acceptance of our products for use at Hyundai Heavy Industries," said Edgardo Rodriguez, Director of Sales and Marketing for Hernon Manufacturing.  "We anticipate a mutually beneficial working relationship with Mr. Lee and Hyundai."

During the testing phase, Hyundai representatives requested a lower viscosity product, for use with its large transformers, than one of Hernon's epoxy solutions, a two component, one-to-one mix ratio adhesive system.   Hernon Manufacturing rose to the challenge to develop a modified epoxy solution.

"Our modified epoxy solution is ideal for Hyundai's large transformer application," added Rogriguez.

The modified epoxy solution is a two component, one hundred percent solid system, one-to-one ration, room temperature cure system.  The adhesive has excellent resistance to organic acids and bases, good mechanical properties, and an outstanding resistance to abrasion. Typical applications for this modified epoxy are:  tank lining, chemical resistant flooring, marine coating, and underwater coating.  

"The opportunities for Hernon products continues to grow in different manufacturing sectors.  In fact, another division of Hyundai is currently testing two of our epoxies in their large windmill generators," added Rodriguez.
