Bonding & Joining Applications
Bonding & Joining
Advantage Converting provides a variety of bonding and joining applications. Some components need crucial protection from environmental elements like dust, moisture, and radio frequencies, and others require specific adhesives and tapes as an alternative to metal fasteners in order to bond materials together. Using our expertise, we can craft the best bonding and joining applications for your solution.
A number of factors come into play when selecting the best bonding or joining materials. We can help you choose the right material based on the type of bond (high strength, assembly aid, or temporary joining), the surface energy of the bonded substrates, the surface texture, shape, and size, and adhesion strength. Our longstanding relationships with world-class tape and adhesive suppliers ensures you get the best materials for the job.
Q: When do I need a clean room?
Clean room manufacturing is primarily used when manufacturing sensitive materials that can be easily contaminated or affected by particles in the air. For example, at Advantage Converting, we have used our clean rooms to manufacture advanced wound care products, solar panel components, and vibration dampeners for the aerospace industry. However, a clean room can be used for any converted good. Our experts can work with you to determine clean room requirements for your project.
Q: What manufacturing processes does Advantage Converting perform in their clean rooms?
We can perform any manufacturing process in our clean rooms, including custom die cutting, laminating, slitting and rewinding, and roll-to-roll manufacturing.
Q: What is clean room manufacturing?
Clean room manufacturing is the use of an enclosed area with strict environmental controls to manufacture sensitive components. The controlled environment – or clean room – limits the presence of dust, airborne microbes, aerosol, and chemical vapors to prevent environmental contamination of sensitive components, such as those for medical, electronic, and aerospace applications.
Advantage Converting has multiple clean rooms that are available for all converted goods. Our clean rooms are certified as ISO 8 / Class 100,000 and ISO 7 / Class 10,000.
