Converter processes: Our capabilities
Tight tolerances? Intricate shapes? No problem. We’ll create a production plan that meets your timelines and requirements with our expert recommendations to keep costs to a minimum. Explore our broad range of capabilities to fabricate a product or prototype.
Die-cutting is the go-to method for cutting shapes from flexible, elastomeric material because of its precision and ability to achieve tighter tolerates.
Uses a cylindrical die to cut shapes from flat material as well as cuts that are perforated or scored.
Uses a hydraulic flatbed press to cut shapes from the material, and is ideal for thicker, denser substrates, including metal foil.
Slitting and rewinding
Need a roll of tape cut to a specific width? We can unwind a master roll, cut and rewind in a single operation. Slitting and rewinding are also applicable to other thin, flexible materials.
Can’t find the width you need from the manufacturer? We can cut master log rolls of pressure-sensitive tapes and adhesive-coated materials into the desired dimensions.
Flexographic printing can convert film, paper and pressure-sensitive tape into a label. Whether used for marketing or instructing, our versatile capabilities can add style and/or function to your product.
Layer multiple materials, including foam, pressure-sensitive adhesive and/or film to create a custom, adhesive-backed material. We offer multiple processes to fit the material: cold laminating, heated laminating, single-layer laminating and multi-layer laminating.

Applications: Gasketing, masking and other adhesive-backed solutions from Evans EVCO
From the raw materials — pressure-sensitive adhesives, foams and laminate film — the options are almost limitless. Here’s a quick overview of some of the uses for custom converted parts made from engineered foams, materials and pressure-sensitive adhesives from 3M.
Masking and surface protection
Custom masking solutions shield the surfaces you need to protect from overspray in messy applications like painting, plasma spraying and applying liquid adhesive.
Surface protection products shield finished surfaces from being blemished by mishandling, abrasion or other environmental causes and can be die cut to exact surface dimensions.
Joining & Assembly
Many double-coated tapes are used to join various substrates together in assembly operations. In some cases, they take the place of mechanical fasteners. They can also be die cut to match the exact dimension of the substrates to be joined.
Maximize uptime and reduce set-up time with continuous runs of material. Create a custom roll of extra-large sheets or rolls of materials with splicing tape.
When easy release and clean surface removal are top requirements for your peel-and-stick applications, Evans EVCO materials expertise in PTFE (Teflon) and UHMW Polyurethane tapes will help identify the answer.
Gasketing & sealing
Foam gaskets backed with pressure-sensitive adhesive as well as custom foam gasket tape cut to exact width and thickness block dust, grime, moisture and the elements. We can assist with identifying the materials and best gasket tapes with the characteristics that can stand up to the conditions.
Vibration and sound control
Build custom parts with materials and adhesives designed to soften and absorb the annoying rattles, hums and vibrations that can accompany appliances, engine/electric powered machines or electronic devices. Our custom sound-minimizing solutions feature adhesive for soundproofing panels, along with sound and vibration control adhesives from 3M that stop friction and absorb vibrations.
Conclusion: Evans EVCO is the expert in adhesives and flexible materials. Our broad capabilities and extensive inventory can help you manufacture a solution for your product's toughest performance challenges.
