D.W. Electrochemicals Ltd. was established in 1986 and has been providing Stabilant 22 worldwide for 37 years.

In 1976, William M.D. Wright, the founder of Wright Electroacoustics and the Dayton Wright Group, started to research and develop an electronic contact enhancer that would solve intermittent connector problems and limit connector failures. After many years of field research and trials he discovered Stabilant 22.

Stabilant 22 was first tested for defense use in 1983 at The Canadian Forces Establishment, Cold Lake, Alberta, and was issued a NATO number for use as a Contact Enhancer NSCM - Cage Code/NATO Supplier Code - 38948 


Stabilant 22 has a 15 year shelf life, and to fix most problems it only takes a small amount to do the job. Stabilants help to limit waste, make better connections, extend product life and, in many instances, allow people to repair an item instead of replacing it.

From his beginnings as a physicist and electrical engineer at MIT, William (known to his friends as Mike) was obsessed with electronics. Specifically, he was interested in sound quality and amplification. That passion led him to creating his own line of award winning consumer speakers, preamps and pre-preamps which he spent many hours perfecting.

In post production his preamps and pre-preamps would occasionally run into problems which led to intermittent crackling, hissing and popping sounds. After many tests he determined that the cause of the problems was the connectors. He was frustrated by this and looked for a solution to fix the connector problems, but nothing that he tried worked well enough.  

So, he created and tested and retested a solution to solve his problems. After many tests he finally came up with the answer: Stabilant 22.

Of course, it turned out that Stabilant 22 was a great solution for fixing problems in the audio field, but Mike realized it could fix so much more. The applications of his product have been used across many industries ranging from audio/visual, automotive, avionics, biomedical, communications, computers, construction, farming, manufacturing, marine, military, mining, photography and robotics (to name a few).
