Many customers rely on CRG for the supply of “peel and stick” parts. These parts combine an engineered material with a suitable adhesive, enabling the part to be easily separated from its backing liner and installed directly into the application.
CRG manufactures adhesive-backed parts from a variety of materials, including elastomers, foams and sponges, laminates, foils and films, and other specialty materials. We work with customers to help them choose the most appropriate material and adhesive for their application, and employ the latest manufacturing processes to ensure that finished parts meet all specifications and requirements.
Advantages of adhesive-backed parts include the following:
Ease of installation. Installers and assemblers can quickly and easily place adhesive-backed parts into use.
Secure positioning. Once placed into position, adhesive-backed parts remain securely in place.
Superior dimensional stability. Some materials are prone to elongation when the finished part is being handled or placed into use. Because peel-and-stick parts are supplied with an adhesive backing, the liner provides additional support during the installation process, thereby reducing the likelihood that the part will stretch or elongate.
Examples of adhesive-backed parts that CRG can supply include:
Gaskets and seals for industrial and automotive applications. We have extensive experience in supplying adhesive-backed gaskets for fluid sealing applications, as well as seals for automotive uses, including seals for vehicle doors, hoods, trunks, and the like.
Kiss-cut parts. Kiss-cut parts are adhesive-backed parts which are usually supplied in rolls, enabling each part to be quickly and easily separated from its backing liner. In kiss cutting and slitting, parts with adhesive backing mounted onto a release liner are cut, but not cut all the way through the liner. In this way, the parts can be easily detached from the liner and placed into use.
Rubber washers and spacers
Parts for suppressing noise, vibration and harshness (NVH)
Parts for damping, isolation and insulation
Parts for shielding against RFI and EMI
CRG offers a wide range of engineered materials which can be combined with adhesives to create adhesive-backed parts. Materials we work with include elastomers (silicone and non-silicone), foams and sponges (silicone and non-silicone), PVC plastics, felts and flocks, corks, non-wovens, and specialty materials such as foils, films and laminates.
We offer full support for the production of adhesive-backed parts, including CAD support, prototyping, and quality control via our ISO 9001:2015 certified quality management system. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff will be pleased to assist with concepts, manufacturing techniques and costs, and material considerations and selection.
