Bonding & Adhesive Systems

Critical and high performance materials that quickly and reliably attach components, supporting or replacing mechanical fasteners.

Bonding & Adhesive Systems

Medical Grade Adhesives    Display & Optically Clear Adhesives    Mechanical Attachment Systems     Tapes

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 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.

Display & Optically Clear Adhesives

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.

Boyd Corporation is skilled in display technologies and optically clear adhesives that leverage our relationships with and knowledge of expert raw material manufacturers and our in-house precision converting expertise to manufacture cost effective, tight tolerance, registration controlled, high performance display solutions.




Tapes

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. Full coverage adhesive, island placement adhesive, and selective coverage adhesive designs allow Boyd to optimize material utilization and product performance to your specifications. We’re well versed in designing and manufacturing a variety of cutting-edge solutions with ultra-tight tolerances laminating multiple material layers for complex assemblies and fabricating value-added solutions formatted for automated assembly equipment with registration control for pick and place in reel-to-reel presentation of parts or individually packed.

Medical Grade Adhesives

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.

With the acquisition of CSI Medical, Boyd’s specialization and decades of experience in Medical Contract Manufacturing deepened. End wound care products range from consumer medical adhesives to gauze pads, tracheostoma care, and industrial grade wound care solutions with drug delivery. Boyd Corporation is a world leader in wound care and medical disposables manufacturing with expertise in skin contact adhesives and tapes, one-time disposables, and repeat-use disposables.




Foams

Boyd has an immense portfolio of open cell foams and closed cell foams in a wide range of materials, including our own high performance, non-flammable Solimide® Foam ideal for thermal and acoustic insulation. Our material selection expertise and precision converting technologies enable us to provide the right foam for optimal compression force deflection or ability to withstand different environmental exposures and combine them with other products like adhesives for a complete sealing solution. Boyd solutions can meet variable dimensional requirements to help reduce landed costs and assembly time. Foams laminated with adhesive can be configured as a single sided foam tape or double-sided foam tape with varying densities, compression set resistances, and tear strengths to meet the needs of many different applications.




Mechanical Attachment Systems

Boyd’s Mechanical Attachment Systems are ideal for applications that require mechanical attachments for permanent bonds or more reusable and adjustable solutions. 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.
