About Conversion Technologies International

Located in West Unity, Ohio, CTI is a contract coater and laminator, dedicated to providing hot melt and water-based adhesive coatings, lamination, slitting, and die-cutting services using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. As such, we are able to accommodate new and unique products and materials by utilizing modular organization of our equipment. CTI’s Quality Management System is certified to ISO 9001:2015 by ABS Quality Evaluations, Inc.

Product Development

Our engineering team assists in development of products and materials requiring coatings, lamination or slitting and die-cutting. Our engineering team and technicians can help facilitate and fine tune the production process in the final steps of product development. This creates an opportunity for you to evaluate and test the market, before committing to the final production requirements.

Material Evaluation

With our extensive resources of engineering staff and versatile equipment, we utilize several methods for processing your material. By working with various suppliers, we can help determine the best sourcing to achieve the desired results. With our intensive focus on coating and lamination, we can assist by providing a selection of results, in order to determine the best solution. We can also coat or laminate materials provided by the client that must be used in the final product.

Allowing a contractor to handle these development phase tasks can cut costs drastically.

Equipment Evaluation

CTI is equipped to handle initial runs of new materials and products, in order to save companies from investing in production equipment before they have developed the final specifications. It is this development phase that can cause the producer to exceed their budget, if several methodologies need to be tested before the process can be finalized. By allowing a contractor to utilize various equipment configurations in order to achieve the most efficient, cost-effective method of production, a great deal of cost and wasted time can be eliminated.

Your organization is then able to analyze results from various methods, before investing in new equipment and finalizing the technology.

Testing the Marketplace

While you are testing a product in the marketplace, we can handle the short- or long-term production until you have had an opportunity to make final modifications and are ready to bring production in-house.
