More products are integrating graphic interfaces to increase customer accessibility with LCD displays, LED screens, and now OLED screens. LCD and OLED screen display technologies require supporting components that enable them to function or increase performance while still maintaining optical integrity. Graphic display solutions help enhance device operation over extended periods of time, including screen bonding systems, vibration management, optically clear adhesives (OCA), window tapes, barrier films, and thermal management.
Tapes are used in nearly every industry and every application. To meet varying product requirements and withstand different environmental conditions, Boyd has developed our tape portfolio to produce solutions for nearly every situation. Tapes typically entail a backing or carrier material, usually polyethylene or polyurethane film or foam carriers coated with adhesive on either one or both sides to create single or double sided tape. Tapes featuring a carrier offer the benefit of stability and dimensional tolerance control during assembly and installation but may not offer the flexibility of a transfer tape. Transfer tapes are pure adhesive with no foam or film carrier and offer a significant range of flexibility and movement of a component. This level of flexibility may be difficult to handle during assembly or installation for tolerance-controlled applications. Common adhesives include acrylic, modified acrylic, rubber, or silicone as a transfer tape or coated on a carrier material. These can be presented as pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA), single sided tape, double sided tape, heat activated tape, deferentially coated tape, and other formulations to bond specific, similar, or dissimilar materials.
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.
The expanding wound care and medical disposables market is well-served by Boyd with ISO 13485 and FDA registered manufacturing in North America, Europe and Asia. Boyd’s experienced sourcing, design and medical quality management teams leverage our FDA registered facilities, cleanroom environments, prototyping capabilities and manufacturing equipment for both small to large volumes to produce high quality, clean, traceable and dependable medical products.
Boyd offers single and two part epoxies for permanent mechanical joints and can be combined with other properties such as higher thermal conductivity or electrical isolation. Hook and loop fasteners enable more temporary joints between fabrics but remains effective over many fastening cycles.
Display & Optically Clear Adhesives
Medical Grade Adhesives
Mechanical Attachment 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.
Bonding & Adhesive Line Card
Boyd Corporation is an adhesives expert with decades of experience designing custom solutions 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.
