Orangeburg, SC — Zeus, a global leader in material science and polymer extrusions, and longtime partner in the medical, oil and gas, aerospace, electrical and semi-conductor industries, has turned its attention toward supplying electrical insulation solutions to the automotive industry.
Zeus has dedicated internal resources to investigating, understanding and solving the specific needs of the automotive industry. As a result, Zeus products and custom solutions are already being utilized for everything from wire harnessing and cable assembly to fluid management and sealing/filtration solutions.
"Zeus is a valuable resource for this market because of the variety of custom applications we're involved with," notes Benji Smith, automotive marketing manager for Zeus. "All of our polymers are chemically inert to typical automotive fluids such as fuels, ATF, PS and brake fluids, and capable of withstanding temperatures up to 260C. We're seeing great interest in custom heat shrinks for harnessing and insulating wires, we can customize the dimensions and tolerance of our high-performance tubing for fluid handling applications, and we also offer dual-layered and co-extruded tubing as well as a host of optimization services."
Smith notes most end consumers are unaware that advancements in passenger car technologies typically funnel down from top level racing programs.
"These cars are built for performance and must consistently deliver when pushed to their absolute limits," says Smith. "Zeus has already succeeded in innovating for those markets. Now we're looking to offer our solutions across a broader spectrum."
Zeus is the world's leading polymer tubing and material science innovator. Almost 50 years of experience in medicine, aerospace, oil and gas, automotive, fiber optics and more allows us to leap past can't and move directly to how. Headquartered in Orangeburg, South Carolina, Zeus employs approximately 1,200 people worldwide and operates multiple facilities in North America and internationally.
