Materials High Quality Materials for Converting
With new materials being developed every day, we’ve positioned ourselves to be a leader in stocking and converting the most advanced and widely used materials for manufacturing applications. We routinely work with adhesives, plastics, rubbers, silicone, foams and many other materials. We maintain strong partnerships with many of the world’s leading materials suppliers, including 3M, Rogers Corporation, SABIC Polymershapes and Laird Technologies. These relationships combined with our materials expertise help us stay on top of current application needs and deliver exceptional value to our customers.
AdhesivesAdhesives add value to manufacturing applications by providing reliable bonding between substrates while also helping to reduce weight, eliminate mechanical fasteners and enhance design freedom. Some of the adhesives we convert regularly include rubber adhesives, silicone adhesives, acrylic adhesives and a wide range of pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA). LEARN MORE
EMI/RFIElectromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) can significantly disrupt performance of electronic devices. We help OEMs and component suppliers create effective EMI/RFI management solutions using a variety of different materials. Some of the products we work with to develop these solutions include conductive elastomers, aluminum foils, copper foils, metallicized fabrics and others. LEARN MORE
Foam & Sponge
Foam & SpongeFoam and sponge materials are extremely versatile, which is why they are consistently used across industries to provide impact protection, fill gaps, prevent ingress from contaminants and to dampen unwanted noise and vibration. We work with a range of different materials — including both open- and closed-cell foams — to provide the right compression set and other characteristics our customers need to enhance their final products.

InsulatorsAs power density and demands on electrical components increase, manufacturers need effective insulation solutions to protect users and ensure proper performance. We convert a range of electrical insulation materials to help meet these needs. Some of the insulator materials we work with regularly include polyester, polyimide, epoxies, polycarbonate, polypropylene and others. LEARN MORE
MetalMetal materials are used in every industry because of their wide availability and unique material characteristics. We have the converting capabilities to transform metal products into workable solutions for any number of manufacturing applications. Some of the metals we can convert include aluminum, graphite, copper, steel and nickel. LEARN MORE
PlasticsPlastics are among the most widely used materials in the world because of their versatility and wide ranging material characteristics. We regularly convert plastics for use in the automotive, aerospace, medical, HVAC and electronics markets. Our team can help create solutions using low density polyethylene, PTFE, nylon, HDPE and many other types of plastic. LEARN MORE
RubberRubber materials are used for everything from seals and gaskets to impact protection, vibration dampening, shock absorption and more. We have extensive experience converting a wide variety of rubber materials. Some of the rubber products we can use to produce custom manufacturing solutions include silicone, neoprene, EPDM, TPR, butyl, natural rubber and many others. LEARN MORE
TapeAs our name implies, we specialize in converting tape products to exact specifications with tight tolerances to create reliable, high-quality solutions for our customers. From masking to bonding dissimilar substrates and many other applications, we leverage our expertise to create outstanding tape-based solutions for nearly every industry. Some of the most popular tape products we convert include adhesive transfer tapes, high bond tapes, single- and double-coated tapes, masking tapes and more. LEARN MORE
Thermal ManagementThermal management materials play a vital role in preventing or isolating thermal events such as sparks, shorts or fires. To help keep end users safe and meet industry standards, we convert a wide range of materials used to create thermal protection solutions (TPS). Some of these materials include thermal transfer tapes, phase change materials, heat spreading foils and silicone or acrylics for gap pads. LEARN MORE
Materials for thermal and acoustic insulation
Some materials come in handy for thermal and acoustic insulations. These materials are respectively useful to reduce the heat flow and obstruct sound transmission (and vibration) in applications.
Thermal insulation reduces heat transfer between objects within the radiative influence or thermal contact. On the other hand, acoustic insulation is a process used to inhibit the ability of a building structure to transmit sound through it. To achieve any of these effects in applications needing it, you’ll use thermal and acoustic insulation materials.
Examples of the applications that may require heat flow reduction or sound transmission blockage include industrial equipment, telecommunication equipment, cell phones, household appliances, HVAC system, etc.
