Critical and High Performance Bonding and Adhesive Systems

Bonding and adhesive systems are highly engineered materials that include a broad range of adhesive tapes, optically clear adhesives, epoxies, or rubbers (OCA/OCR) and pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA). These materials typically adhere a variety of substrates together or bond components into an assembly. Adhesive and bonding materials are essential components to high performance in nearly every industry.

Boyd has access to the broadest portfolio of expert adhesive and tape suppliers in the world and can additionally laminate custom formulations for your application. Our ability to mix and match materials with our world-class precision converting processes like rotary die cutting, kiss-cutting, slitting and more can create custom composite tape solutions for any application.

Decades of Experience Designing Custom Solutions

Boyd is an adhesives expert with decades of experience designing custom solutions, such as medical stick to skin disposables, custom wearable medical device assemblies, medical tape converting and advanced rearview mirror display stackups that feature adhesives and tape for quick and easy assembly. Boyd engineers utilize a series of key parameters to identify the best adhesive system for an application. The success or failure of an adhesive relies on variables such as mating substrates, polymer type, surface contact, dwell time or potential environmental exposures. Failing to consider all aspects of the application can lead to insufficient pull strength, impact resistance, inadequate temperature resistance and product lifetime.
