Laminating is the process of joining two or more materials together in layers to create a single composite material. Follows is a small sampling of our abilities.
- Layer foam strip tape, adhesive, and release paper to create adhesive single- or double-sided foam tape.
- Laminate foils with high temperature adhesive and polyester fabrics.
- Laminate foams, both open and closed cell, with double sided polyester and transfer adhesives.
The possibilities are virtually endless.
Can-Do National Tape possesses several laminators which can laminate substrates up to 62 inches wide using either or both the hot and/or the cold roll laminating process. We also are able to economically laminate materials less than 62 inches wide using a variety of rotary presses with heated rollers.
We employ nip roll gapping to incorporate heat into the laminating process. The nip roll allows for the lamination of products of different thicknesses. This state-of-the-art heating system ensures a consistent bond across the web.
Additionally, Can-Do possesses two and three roll rewind stations and take-up stands. When coupled with a programmed counter, the correct yardage is put-up on each roll.

Can-Do is ISO 9001:2008 Certified. Because of this, we are qualified to sell a variety of laminated foams, foils, and felts to Tier 1 automotive suppliers. These precision die-cut products are typically used in the manufacture of component parts for automobiles.
When Can-Do’s laminating capabilities are combined with our precision die-cut services and adhesive application knowledge, we serve as a one-stop solution for adhesive application problems, such as we did for the following customers.
Success Story 1: Laminating Application
Can-Do National Tape is in the business of solving adhesive problems. When a Tier 1 automotive supplier was looking for help with a difficult application, they sought our assistance. Working closely with the company’s design engineers, Can-Do created a process to solve the problem. Multiple heat laminations of film, foil, and adhesive, slit to specific widths and then precisely die-cut to print provided for an economical solution. The result for the Company was highly-engineered, tight-tolerance parts. Can-Do was able to sample products, develop prototypes, and produce parts in a short time, allowing the Company to solve their problem and make THEIR customer happy.

Success Story 2: Laminating Application
The customer came to us seeking assistance with a problem identified during the testing of new vehicles. Can-Do recommended a polyester backed foil that would shield an under-the-hood wire harness from engine heat. We assisted in the solution design, laminated the foil with the appropriate high temperature adhesive and polyester barrier, die-cut the material to the required shape, and delivered the component parts in time to allow for the successful introduction of the automotive model to the market.
