Pacific, established in 2004, says on its website that its contact lubricants combine electrical properties and lubricity with plastics compatibility. Applications for these kinds of lubricants include extending the operating life of switches, improving signal quality, reducing operating temperature and preventing contamination, the company says.

The Malaysian manufacturer also produces a range of products, including adhesives, sealants and cleaning chemicals for such companies as Dow and 3M.

Pacific, which has operations in Malaysia, Thailand. China and Hong Kong, will join Meridian’s electronics division, which is composed of a number of companies that manufacture adhesives, silicones and epoxies, among other products.

Neither Meridian, based in Dalton, Georgia, nor Pacific could be reached for comment by deadline.
