HVAC applications and solutions

Our custom HVAC solutions can enhance products and fix common issues such as preventing vibration or rattling in units, improving internal environment control, increasing energy efficiency, providing better airflow control and preventing water leakage into buildings. We customize all of our solutions to fit your application requirements and enhance your products and manufacturing operations.


  • Lessen reliance on skilled labor
  • Reduce process time and cost
  • Increase durability
  • Reduce air and water leaks
  • Eliminate galvanic corrosion caused by mechanical fasteners
  • Reduce insulation bonding adhesive cost
  • Improve throughput
  • Reduce noise and vibration

Permanent and temporary bonding

Adhesive solutions can replace mechanical fasteners and provide permanent bonding for components and structural panels, or temporary bonding for access panels. VHB tape and other adhesive materials can provide extremely durable bonds that won’t loosen, rattle or corrode over time like mechanical fasteners. Saunders also has expertise in developing bonding solutions for dissimilar substrates, and materials with low surface energy.

Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH)

Make HVAC systems quieter and more user-friendly with UL 723 material solutions that mitigate NVH issues. These solutions  provide optimal sound deadening and  vibration-dampening solutions by decreasing the airflow in between components, they also provide strong bonding solutions to join components so they won’t vibrate against one another.

Thermal management

Thermal interface materials and insulators provide the thermal management required to ensure user safety and optimal system performance. In short, we provide custom cut product solutions that help control airflow management to keep the heat or cold where it’s supposed to be.  One of these solutions we specialize in is the use of UL 723 Insulation, which is designed for  optimal thermal  management solutions for pipes, ductwork and critical components used in HVAC assemblies. 

By using UL 723 materials we are able to improve energy efficiency, provide optimal sound deadening and fire protection.  This helps to increase the overall product life span, safety, and prevents damage to heat sensitive components.

Environmental sealing

Custom gaskets and adhesive solutions can create airtight and watertight seals to improve energy efficiency and prevent ingress from moisture for vacuum systems, water pumps, and other HVAC components.

Durable labeling

Our label printing services provide durable labels that can withstand heat and cold while improving the user experience for installers and end users.

Gasketing for airtight environmental seals

Saunders engineers are experts in developing custom die-cut gaskets for a range of applications, including HVAC systems. Whether you want to upgrade or replace HVAC systems and components, Saunders’ UL 723 gasketing solutions not only provide a leak-tight seal in metal ductwork but also reduce vibrations from motors and fans to help you improve efficiency.

We can convert many different types of gasket materials including UL 723 materials, EPDM rubber, neoprene, silicone,  urethane, and many others. Our speciality UL 723 gasketing solutions can provide airtight and watertight seals, helping to improve energy efficiency in HVAC systems and eliminate leaks.
