Rapid Die-Cut can apply adhesives (acrylic / rubber) to all materials and supply your parts on rolls, sheets or individually as well as packaging parts in cartons or bags.
Superior Technology. Superior Process.
Our digital system automatically chooses the correct adhesive based on the substrate your part will be adhering to. We offer a variety of adhesives to meet your performance standards. Our advanced technology supports our laminating process by promoting heat to ensure that the adhesive bond between the layers is secure. It won’t quit or fail.
The most common materials that can be laminated with PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive):
Open & Closed Cell Foams, Felts, Rubbers, Reclaimed Fiber, Polyester Fiber, Polypropylene Fiber, Blended Fiber, Fabrics, Textiles, Vinyl, Plastic, Cork, Flock, Scrim & Fiberboard.
The primary success of bonding a pressure sensitive adhesive is not chemical or mechanical, but surface compatibility is the key element. Choosing the right adhesive is critical when dealing with low and high surface energy materials. An example of low surface energy (LSE) is a waxed car hood, which makes bonding more difficult. Adhesive on a low surface energy material may bead up and does not effectively "wet out" within the substrate. An example of high surface energy (HSE) is a car hood with no wax which allows even flow of the adhesives and proper "wet out" of the components being joined together. Selecting the correct adhesive and applying pressure is the starting point to a successful bond.
