Having served the electronics industry since the earliest days of cell phone production, M&C Specialties is a trusted, industry-leading converter of components designed to exhibit enhanced electrical grounding, shielding, and insulating properties. We utilize our high-value cleanroom engineering and precision manufacturing capabilities to keep costs down while fabricating high-performance grounding, shielding, and insulating components to meet the most demanding specifications for our electronics customers’ applications.
We have decades of experience in the selection, engineering, and development of electrical grounding, shielding, and insulating materials, a product area that encompasses a variety of films, foams, foils, laminates, and adhesives. In particular, we are a leading custom fabricator of Formex polypropylene and polycarbonate flame-retardant electrical insulating materials, a product line of our sister company ITW Formex. Supplied in sheets and rolls, these versatile, cost-effective materials can be fabricated into a wide range of shapes that exhibit superior surge shielding, electrical insulation, and electrical barrier properties for numerous consumer and industrial electronic equipment applications. Depending on the end-use, Formex materials can provide substantial cost savings when used to replace injected molded components, certain thermoplastic materials, and electrical papers, etc.
As a custom fabricator of Formex and other materials for electrical grounding, shielding, and insulating applications, M&C Specialties leverages its materials expertise and proven converting capabilities to offer unique and innovative products solutions made with or without pressure-sensitive adhesive coatings, as well as multilayer laminate constructions that combine Formex with other electrical insulating, electrical shielding, securement, and heat-shielding layers. In offering these more sophisticated constructions, we can eliminate assembly steps that would otherwise be passed on to the customer.
What separates M&C Specialties from other converters of Formex and related materials is the global reach we enjoy as a subsidiary company of ITW—a $14.1 billion, Fortune 200, global manufacturing leader with converting and fabricating operations in 20 countries. A world-class converter, contract manufacturer, and fabricator of adhesive tapes, components, and related finished products, M&C Specialties leverages its Continuous Partner Involvement model to offer breakthrough product development, clean room/white room engineering and manufacturing, and supply chain services. Our production capabilities include inline laser die-cutting, rotary die-cutting, plotter cutting, flat-bed die-cutting, laminating, spooling, slitting, laser cutting, and printing.
