Driving New Ideas
Advances in technology have made adhesives more attractive to automotive manufacturers as replacements for traditional fasteners such as screws and rivets, and even some welds. Engineered to withstand constant vibration and resist extreme temperatures, these adhesives can help reduce assembly times and ensure lasting performance for greater customer satisfaction.
Automakers rely on adhesive-backed foams and lining for weatherproofing, passenger cabin comfort, sound dampening between the engine compartment and the cabin, and general reduction of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). We produce gaskets and adhesive liners cut to exact dimensions for accurate fit, ease of installation and long service life.
Our internal quality assurance measures meet or exceed the requirements of most automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, so we can serve as a seamless extension of their operations. We can help you maintain or increase production volumes while controlling or reducing costs.
Materials and Applications
Vehicles benefit in several ways from the use of adhesive tapes and gaskets. They help reduce assembly times, seal out wind and water, control noise and vibration, and protect surfaces during painting, manufacturing and transport. We recommend such advanced materials as:
- Rogers PORON® Urethane Foams
- Extruded & Molded Rubber
- Viton® Rubber and Sponge
- 3M® VHB Tape
We convert materials for many Tier 1 suppliers and OEMs. Using precise cutting technologies, we produce flexible components for a broad range of automotive applications, including:
