What are Bonding and Adhesive Systems?

Adhesive tapes, epoxies, optically clear adhesives or rubbers (OCA/OCR) and pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) are highly engineered materials typically used to adhere various materials together or bond a component into an assembly. Adhesive and bonding materials are critical components to high performance in nearly every industry.

Boyd is an adhesives expert with decades of experience designing custom solutions that feature adhesives and tape for quick and easy assembly. There are a number of key parameters that help Boyd engineers identify what adhesive system is best for an application. The success or failure of an adhesive relies on variables such as like mating substrate, polymer type, surface contact, dwell time or potential environmental exposures. Failing to consider all aspects of the application can lead to insufficient pull strength or impact resistance and inadequate temperature resistance or product lifetime.
