Home Resource Center News and Announcements Advanced Materials Group Introducing Materion COVERexpress Introducing Materion COVERexpress Packaging Material Delivered in Half the Time Materion’s Advanced Materials business segment announced today a new service that will halve the existing scheduled delivery time for microelectronic packaging products ordered in smaller quantities. Faster receipt will enable customers to accelerate R&D projects and decrease their time to market. Through Materion’s COVERexpress service, delivery of Combo-LidsTM and solder preforms can be expedited without compromising product quality.
