Case Study: Footwear
A no-tie shoelace alternative brand came to Material ConneXion after experiencing a high breakage rate in their product.
With negative reviews impacting sales, and a contract with a major sportswear company on hold due to quality concerns, they needed a solution – and quick!
- Ease of Implementation
- Time to Launch
Through Material Landscape, MCX identified highly elastomeric bands for the product line and supported the client as they entered production.
The Material Solution
Elastomers and rubbers normally sourced for garden equipment, under the hood in automotive, and medical devices were all considered for this consumer product.
The material recommendations made by Material ConneXion are being tested in the brand’s current product offerings. The right material means a dramatically improved product and happy customers.
