Adhesive Bonding Systems

Adhesives, also commonly referred to as bonding systems, adhesive tape and pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA), are highly engineered materials typically used to adhere various materials together or bond a component into an assembly.

There are a number of key performance indicators that help Boyd identify what PSA or adhesive is best for an application, like mating substrate polymer type, surface contact, dwell time or potential environmental exposures. The success or failure of an adhesive is much more dynamic than simply the strength of the adhesive.

Boyd is an adhesives expert with decades of experience designing custom solutions that feature adhesives and tape for quick and easy assembly.

Solutions

  • Soft or hard durometers which help determine conformability or stability
  • Low to high flexibility
  • Repositionable or low tack for applications that require reworkability
  • Resistance to UV, solvents, plasticizer migration, various chemicals & environmental exposures for reliable performance in diverse or harsh environments
  • Optically clear adhesives (OCA), transparent or translucent tapes
  • Heat activated tapes for ultimate bond adhesion
  • Specialized low surface energy (LSE) formulations for hard to stick to substrates like powder coated surfaces, certain plastic or rubber compounds & oil residue
  • Ultra low or high temperature resistance for environmental extremes
  • Low VOC (volatile organic compound) adhesives for sensitive or enclosed applications
  • Heat & flame resistant solutions
  • Thermally or electrically conductive adhesives & tapes
  • Custom thicknesses, lengths, widths, colors, adhesion ratings
