If you are looking for a special hybrid material, we offer coatings and laminating that can change the materials specification and performance to suit your application.
You may just need to apply an adhesive coating to your substrate or you may wish to bond a high voltage barrier layer to your thermal pad.
The coating itself may be an all-over coating, completely covering the substrate, or it may only cover parts of the substrate.
Lamination is the technique/process of manufacturing a material in multiple layers so that the composite material achieves improved strength, stability, sound insulation, appearance, or other properties from the use of the differing materials.
A laminate is a permanently assembled object created using heat, pressure, welding, or gluing.
Coating and Laminating are performed in our factory in Milton Keynes UK. We are able to coat or laminate adhesives to many technical films or materials.
We typically coat film adhesives to make single or double-sided adhesive-backed materials. The thickness of the adhesive can be tuned to suit your application.
Please apply through the contact us page to discuss your requirements. As we manufacture these materials in-house fast lead times are guaranteed.
A suitable release liner is used and supplied once the coating is completed. We often combine the adhesive laminated material to the rotary die-cutting process of manufacturing custom shape parts on a roll.
Any suitable film adhesive can be reviewed and your specific requirements should be discussed with us as to its suitability of our equipment. We are able to apply heat if required in the process of laminating.
3M adhesives seem to be the main source of adhesives we laminate but we are not limited to the range if you need something special.
Materials Direct is approaching this market in a way that is easy to order and specify in Electronics across all industries. Customers who need a certain brand of material that does not appear on the site can apply for us to add this stock to the site’s portfolio based on potential usage.
No Tooling Charge
There is NEVER a tooling charge for manufacturing
Parts made & shipped worldwide in as little as 24 hours

The main problem for design engineers and purchasing has been until now the quick supply of parts as often the custom pad is one of the last items to be specified in the design of an Electronic assembly.
Materials Direct not only provides an instant quote but gives the buyer the offer of uploading their custom design for it to be manufactured within 24hours if the material is in stock.
All of our Coating & Laminating services are carried out by experienced and trained professionals who have a high understanding of how the machines work and how they should be used.
Materials Direct will also only source materials from trusted Brands.
Very fast reply, very good order following and delivery in 24H. to recap a verry good experience with Materials Direct for a verry urgent need. I recommend a lot.
'Having the ability to be supplied with precision cut materials for prototypes within 2 days has been excellent!’
'We have the need for small to medium batch sizes of various technical materials and Materials Direct have been highly responsive to our urgent needs'
‘We have had to change our designs in the development stages three times. Materials Direct did not charge for these changes as the sizes stayed the same. Excellent!’
‘Precision and high quality of parts received have been consistently to a high standard.’
'Buying online with Materials Direct has proven to be more efficient in time and deliveries, especially when scheduling future orders.’
Each sector has its own unique requirements and specifications. Materials Direct works to ensure that each sector we supply to, receives the highest quality and best-performing products in relation to their industry and specific need.
The Aerospace industry demands the highest performing, most reliable technical materials to protect their electronic assemblies.
Automotive applications range from Engine management systems to motor drive controllers and custom-made gaskets and pads.
Industrial electronics are robust, have long lifetimes, are cost-sensitive, and suitable for use within difficult environments.
Sufficient thermal management in LED lighting can preserve longevity, increase reliability and optimise performance.
Materials used in military applications need to be of the highest quality and performance, often very rugged to very exacting standards.
Coupling discreet heat-generating semiconductors to heatsinks remains commonplace in power supply assemblies.
