Professional products and processes

Efficient solutions for your company

A company and its products are only as strong as the people behind them. We stand behind them with conviction and, when required, with extraordinary ideas. As producers, developers, problem solvers and service providers, we are guided by this maxim. The most important objective for us is to find efficient solutions for the widest possible range of industrial requirements. We are therefore committed to product development – by working with our customers to find the best possible solution.

We offer customers extensive opportunities to implement customised solutions based on our range of coating systems and decades of experience.

Consulting and development

Whether you want to provide a new film with a standard coating or apply a new coating mass to an existing film, our laboratory will help you, as required, with the formulation of the coating mass (our options are not restricted to just one type of adhesive). We are also at your disposal when it comes to selecting the raw materials (carrier materials). Any additional “tools” required, such as silicone paper, liner films or laminate partner materials, are always available. The minimum coating quantity should not fall below 1000 m². Our total capacity is several million square metres a year. Of course, the goods we are commissioned to coat can then be cut or formatted as required.

Measurement options in the development laboratory

Effective development work is also associated with good laboratory equipment. Along with a modern, generously equipped laboratory, we have a wide range of devices for carrying out measurements and tests. Here is a brief selection:

  • Pilot coating system for manufacturing near-production samples with max. width 270 mm and max. length 100 m
  • Climate cabinet made by Weiss, humidity up to 100% rel., temperature -70 to +180 °C
  • Several heating ovens up to 350 °C for e.g. fast ageing tests
  • Vertical combustion chamber for flammability tests based on UL94-V and IEC 60454
  • Horizontal combustion chamber for flammability tests based on UL94-H and IEC 60454
  • Measuring instrument to determine electrical resistance (electrical conductivity)
  • High voltage test device for determining dielectric strength up to 15 kV AC
  • Various viscometers to determine the viscosity of adhesive solutions
  • Several sets of precision scales
  • Measuring instrument to determine residual solvent content
  • Thickness sensor: Scale division +-1 µm
  • Outside micrometer: Scale division +-1 µm
  • Zwick portal tensile load measuring device; upper limit of load cell 500 N, +/- 0.5% of the measurement, to determine the adhesion force, shear resistance and ductility
  • PH electrode: PH 0 to 14 for measurement of the alkaline or acidic properties of solutions
  • Precision spirit level with scale magnifier (divisions of 0.01 mm), to measure film shrinkage, for example
  • Microscope with digital camera attachment for surface investigations
  • Equipment to determine shear resistance even at high temperature (SAFT test)
  • Kofler block to determine the melting temperature of adhesives and polymers
