6 Reasons to Work with JBC Technologies for Your Pulse Oximeter Bandage Converting Needs


Skin is complex to bond to for a number of reasons And, turning skin-friendly tapes and adhesives into finished pulse oximeter bandages requires state-of-the-art equipment and engineering prowess that many converters don’t have. It is important to work with a converter that has strong relationships with multiple adhesive manufacturers as well as the high speed, precision die-cutting equipment needed to produce complex parts… and one that will go the extra mile to ensure customer success. This post outlines six reasons that JBC checks all the right boxes.

5 Automotive Applications for Die-Cut Low Surface Energy Tapes & Adhesives


This article, the second in our three-part series, describes five common automotive applications that can benefit from a low surface energy adhesive. It will also discuss the benefits of each adhesive, as well as the advantages that JBC Technologies provides with our vertically integrated die-cutting and converting services.

Bonding Low Surface Energy (LSE) Materials


Engineered plastics (like polypropylene and thermoplastics such as Nylon, COC, COP and PEBA, TPO, or TPE) and composites increasingly used in place of metals for automotive, appliance, aerospace, electronic, and medical applications. Yet while there are significant benefits to these materials, they are very difficult to adhere to due to a phenomenon called surface energy. This article, the first of our three-part series, will explain the importance of surface energy in the bonding process, and how 3M low surface energy (LSE) adhesives allow for a clean and secure bond on low surface energy plastics.
