“From Information Technology to Molecular Bonding
In 1999 Don Myers began exploring a new direction. His work as a General Manager at an IT placement firm was slowing down.
However, this wasn’t his first experience with a declining industry. He had experienced this before when working in the annuity sector of the financial services industry. He recognized the trend immediately. This was unmistakable and inevitable.
So Don Myers started a new venture. He began selling glue.
He wasn’t impressed with his personal success with using traditional glues. He began exploring how to best utilize a different glue — a structural adhesive — to improve bonding.
Through persistence and consistent exploration, Don discovered a variety of situations in which this different glue is the perfect solution.
New industries, new needs, new technologies
In addition to selling directly to individuals, Don has also been providing structural adhesives to businesses and industries across America. Tech-Bond has been a favorite of manufacturing, taxidermy, woodworking, funeral homes, mobile bumper cover repair companies, engineering, radio control and so many more.
For each new industry and customer, Don has developed new techniques for using these adhesives specifically for their needs. For example, he soon discovered that this technology worked great for the taxidermy industry. Molecular bonding was best for repairing tears and holes on dry and wet tans.
Soon, Bigfoot, the monster truck, was repairing their sliced tires with Tech-Bond’s SI Black structural adhesive. Seems like molecular bonding adhesives simply provided an overall higher quality, and more reliable alternative to calvarium clamps.
Next, he developed recommendations for using molecular bonding adhesives to repair sliced tractor and ATV tires.
Finally — well not really finally, since he continues to explore — he looked to the automotive industry. Because of the many materials that can rip, break or crack, there are a variety of situations requiring high quality repairs. Tech-Bond Molecular Bonding system is the best solution for creating long lasting, superior strength bonds across a wide range of materials.
Don next developed ways to repair broken farrings for the motorcycle industry. He continues to explore and experiment to develop the most efficient and effective process for repairing just about anything.
