    Sealing. Weatherstripping. Trim. Nameplates. Sensors. Seat cushions. Flooring. If it’s a component commonly found inside a vehicle or aircraft platform, we likely have a variety of tapes, reclosable fasteners, structural adhesives and liners to help make bonds that function precisely how you need them to. Many of our solutions can be die-cut and customized to meet the exact specifications of each component to help streamline the assembly process, minimize waste and make sure everything stays put.

  • A honeycomb structure foundation of an aircraft component

    From bonding display units, small joints, gaskets, powertrains, or even entire vehicle structures—we can help you ensure a strong, corrosion-resistant bond and streamlined assembly process between metals, composites, electronics and more. When environmental factors are a concern, we can help you design to mitigate hazards from heat, extended shock and vibration, and abrasion to help keep your platform operating at full capacity.
