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.

JBC Converting Capabilities: Digital Die-Cutting & Rapid Prototyping


Do you need a small batch of custom, die-cut parts made from a relatively thick foam with complex internal geometry. And do you need them fast? JBC Technologies is known for our high-volume, precision die-cutting, but we know that not all customers need it. If you're looking for small batch maintenance parts or, in this case, some prototype parts for capabilities testing and you need them quickly, our rapid prototyping and digital die-cutting may be the thing...
