Custom Laminating Services from CTI
TDepending upon what use they will get, some products require layers of materials that serve various functions. This is where lamination comes in. Since this technique calls for precision and specialized equipment, many manufacturers do not have the capability. Conversion Technologies International, however, offers expert custom laminating services.
Custom laminating for rolled goods
Whatever products you need to laminate, we will choose the best process based on their characteristics. Because we have established partnerships with many adhesive manufacturers, we have a variety of adhesives from which to choose. We also have the ability to laminate together two or more materials. Our coating equipment includes:
- Slot die
- Gravure coating
- Roll coater
- Hot roll lamination
- Belt lamination
Slot die, gravure coating, and roll coater can use bulk adhesive supplies together with controlled adhesive amounts. This enables you to control your costs. When the product requires adhesive film or a web-type adhesive, hot roll lamination is the best choice. Belt lamination is the best process for laminating sheet goods.
At CTI, we can also use a powered adhesive. This results in a stretchable lamination. And if your products could come into contact with liquids, we can laminate them with water-based adhesives.
One of our customers produces personal absorbent products. They contacted us in order to have a moisture barrier added to their absorbent material. We accomplished this by utilizing a water-based gravure method. This approach controlled the adhesive application. We then applied the lamination and made the necessary trims to the material.
