As a leading custom converter and value-added distributor of electric vehicle motor and electric vehicle battery materials, EIS is well-positioned to address critical challenges in production. Whether you are in search of thermal management solutions, specialty epoxies, high voltage wire and cable, or precision slitting or laser cutting of materials, we continue to lead innovation with strategic supply solutions.



For exterior panels used in truck trailers, ambulances, and recreational vehicles, thin bonding acrylic foam tapes and structural adhesives and sealants are effective alternatives that eliminate the rough surfaces of welds and the rattling and panel flexing of metal fasteners. Logos, graphics, and trim provide other opportunities where adhesives offer aesthetic and functional advantages over metal joining techniques. The interior of automobiles is another area where adhesives play a significant role. For example, thin bonding tapes can invisibly adhere window switch plates and other plastic trim pieces to hard-to-adhere surfaces, such as vinyl substrates.


Taping requirements for vehicles vary depending on the location. Harness tapes in the engine room must be flame retardant and heat resistant, while other locations, such as external body locations, require weather-proof taping solutions or adhesive masking materials. Taping for EMI/RFI shielding must have good conductive and adhesion properties.


Material requirements for applications include conformability to contours of the vehicle body, with good adhesion to oily metal; compatibility with paint bake cycles; weight reduction; and corrosion resistance. Applications include vibration dampening foam and vibration dampening tape. EIS has the application knowledge, materials selection expertise, and converting capability to die-cut materials into the shapes required, dictated by the location in the vehicle, whether on the dash, in the wheelhouse, or in the doors.


Surface protection requirements vary depending on location in the vehicle. Exterior surfaces require abrasion protection, while interior surface requirements may have special bonding or heat tolerance requirements. The breadth of our materials selection and applications expertise ensure the best design solution for the surface protection requirements of a given project.


EIS has extensive experience in providing converted material solutions to the automotive industry. We produce automotive manufacturing materials for applications such as masking for headlights, automotive gasket materials, electrical insulation materials, thermal management materials, and die-cut materials that attach carpeting. We also provide many labeling solutions for application inside electric vehicles. Examples of our labeling solutions include:
