LAMATEK Seals the Deal on 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape

WEST DEPTFORD, NJ -- LAMATEK, Inc. now offers 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape, a highly conformable, single-sided acrylic tape designed for difficult sealing applications. True to its name, 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape holds securely through sun, rain, snow, temperature extremes and humidity for an instant seal that rolls on fast and looks good. New Extreme Sealing Tape sticks on contact to metals, plastics and other substrates without the drying time, dripping, oozing or clean-up associated with liquid sealants.

Proven 3M™ acrylic adhesive conforms over contours, edges, rivets and screws for a water tight seal while the tough but flexible ionomer backing resists abrasions and harsh conditions. New Extreme Sealing Tape also saves time and money while reducing your carbon footprint. The convenient peel-and-stick application eliminates the need for additional tools like caulking guns, that require storage and cleaning, and create unnecessary waste in the form of empty cartridges.

LAMATEK’s newest product option is ideal for applications like sealing joints and seams on rain gutters and downspouts, metal and storage buildings, mobile and office trailers, RV and trailer roofs, skylights, metal enclosures and vent stacks. 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape is also great for leak patching and repairs, window and door sealing, commercial vehicles and sealing around mechanical fasteners. Extreme Sealing Tape sticks to itself and maintains a strong seal on overlapping tape joints.

Highly conformable 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape is available in 3 color options and has a paintable surface for an added aesthetic benefit. 4412 and 4411 series tapes are available in 80 mil thickness or 40 mils for a lower sight profile. As a 3M™ Select Converter, LAMATEK can provide custom slit rolls of tape, die-cut Extreme Sealing gaskets and custom fabricated parts.

New Sure-Seal Foam Sealant Tape Combines the Best of Both Worlds

WEST DEPTFORD, NJ -- LAMATEK announces new Sure-Seal foam sealant tape: an advanced, moldable gasket tape that combines the sealing properties of common sealants with the convenience of a tape. Sure-Seal tape is made from of resilient, open cell urethane foam and impregnated with a proprietary saturant that provides flexible, airtight and watertight sealing without the compression set or restrictions of closed cell foams.

New foam sealant tape is a clean and convenient alternative to spray foam, caulk, butyl and putty tapes that can become messy and difficult to use under varying conditions. Sure-Seal foam tape expands and conforms to block air, vapor, moisture and dust infiltration for over 20 years. Impregnated urethane tape absorbs sound, impact and vibrations while saving time and money in production for a wide variety of industry applications.

Sure-Seal foam sealant tape is available through LAMATEK in a range of custom sizes from 1/4" to 1 1/4" thick and 3/16" to 39" wide. LAMATEK also supplies custom die-cut gaskets and seals to fit industry-specific applications for OEM, RV manufacturers, windows and doors, residential and commercial construction, appliances, HVAC and more.

LAMATEK Expands NJ Manufacturing Facility to Accomodate Growth

WEST DEPTFORD, NJ –

LAMATEK kicked off 2017 by expanding its manufacturing facility from 49,000 to 92,000 square feet, which will significantly increase production capacity. The leading supplier of foam tapes, seals, gaskets and custom fabricated parts signed a 10-year lease that started on January 1st for the space adjoining its current location.

LAMATEK acquires adjoining space to expand NJ manufacturing facility

Having spent the last decade investing in state-of-the-art equipment including rotary die-cutters, laser optical measuring systems, large format printers and CNC precision cutting machines, the expansion was the next logical step for the growing company. Since LAMATEK took advantage of the recent vacancy of the industrial space next door, it can remain in the same West Deptford facility it has called home since 2005.

“We’re thrilled about the expansion because it will allow us to accommodate new opportunities,” said President Bob Carlson. “We’re upgrading everything and adding capacity as well as new capabilities and equipment. For a company that started in an 1,800 square-foot garage, this marks an exciting chapter in our substantial growth over the years.”

After working with Gloucester County’s Workforce Development board, LAMATEK reaffirmed their commitment to contribute to the local economy, in addition to adding a minimum of 20 jobs over the next few years.

Gloucester County Freeholder Director and West Deptford resident, Robert M. Damminger said, “We are grateful that LAMATEK has chosen to keep West Deptford, Gloucester County as their home. We know that our industries have many options to choose from and we are pleased they chose to stay here, expand here and are committed to hiring here.”

Freeholder Heather Simmons, Liaison to the Department of Economic Development, said, “It is a pleasure to work with LAMATEK. They are a great corporate neighbor and they know that Gloucester County’s Workforce Development Board will work with them to help them find the right labor force they need for their new expansion.”

Investing in additional space will also allow the company to maintain the quality and outstanding service it’s been known for over the last 34 years.

West Deptford, NJ –

LAMATEK Inc. is proud to sponsor Gloucester County Institute of Technology’s (GCIT) robotics team, FRC Team 3151 Cyberstorm, who are competing in the annual FIRST Robotics Competition. The FIRST Robotics Competition, which kicked off on January 6, is a 6-week long event that teaches high school students innovative thinking, individual initiative and effective teamwork: Three of LAMATEK’s top values.

The West Deptford based company’s contribution to Team Cyberstorm will allow 40 students from GCIT to work together while learning invaluable job and life skills to engineer a large, remote-controlled robot to be entered in the FIRST Robotics Competition games. Donations like LAMATEK’s help cover registration fees for the 2 main events, as well as tools, safety equipment and building materials.

“LAMATEK is proud to support educational opportunities like this that showcase advanced manufacturing to local students,” says Vice President, Laura Basara of the program. “Students like those on GCIT’s robotics team are our future workforce and it is critical for our company to promote the exciting career opportunities in STEM and advanced manufacturing fields.”

LAMATEK Donates Toys, Coats and Time to Make the Season Bright

WEST DEPTFORD, NJ – LAMATEK is making a donation to The Lighthouse Christian Center of Philadelphia in the form of new, unwrapped toys for the 2016 holiday season. Employees of LAMATEK will also be in attendance at the annual Lighthouse Christmas party on December 16, where gifts are distributed to the children and their families. For the last 12 years, LAMATEK has donated gifts, food, coats and time to the annual Christmas program that reaches out to over 500 needy children, men and women from the Philadelphia community. The Lighthouse has been running this event for almost 30 years to provide much needed food for the less fortunate, coats for the homeless, and Christmas gifts for underprivileged children.

LAMATEK’s contribution to the Lighthouse program could not be sustained each year without support from generous employees and friends who are willing to give what they can to help others have a better holiday. As in recent years, we are especially concerned as corporate donations are down and there is a shorter period to collect gifts this year with the event falling on December 16th. LAMATEK will be accepting donations from the community as well, whether it be food, new Christmas toys or gently used coats up until the evening of the party. Appropriate gifts include non-electronic toys for boys and girls, from infants to young teenagers, that do not require batteries and do not promote violence (such as toy guns, swords, etc.)

To learn more about LAMATEK’s involvement, visit our Community Awareness page.
