Thermal management materials

We can convert thermal interface materials (TIMs) to help prevent thermal runaway, protect sensitive components and ensure thermal energy is managed properly within complex systems. Our unique TDS heat shields are an industry leader, and we can develop a wide range of thermal management solutions that insulate, spread, dissipate or shield against extreme temperatures. We take a comprehensive approach to thermal management applications and use our experience and materials science expertise to create custom solutions that enhance component performance, protect users and improve your bottom line.

Types of thermal management materials we work with:

  • TDS heat shields
  • 3M Thinsulate
  • Thermally conductive tapes
  • Rubber pads
  • Graphite films and pads
  • Silicone gap fillers
  • Thermal films
  • Insulating materials


Adhesive films add value to a variety of applications, including surface protection, packaging, labeling and much more. We can convert film materials to tight tolerances for easy application or laminate films onto other substrates to create dynamic, multi-layered solutions. With our custom converting capabilities, we can deliver films in roll format or individual sheets to complement your manufacturing process.

Types of adhesive films we work with:

  • Polyester
  • Polyethylene
  • Polyimide
  • Polypropylene
  • Polycarbonate
  • Polyurethane
  • PTFE


We convert foam materials to create custom solutions for thermal management and insulation, impact resistance, BSR/NVH, gasketing, surface protection and a host of other applications. We work with open- and closed-cell foams and can laminate PSAs onto foams to create ready-to-apply solutions. Our familiarity with foam materials ensures tight tolerance manufacturing without damaging or compromising the underlying material.

Types of foams we work with:

  • Urethane
  • Conductive
  • Melamine
  • Polyester
  • Polyether
  • Polyurethane
  • EPDM
  • Silicone
  • Natural rubber
