Adds Pilot Coating Capabilities to its Contract Manufacturing Services

WHITE CITY, Ore., Aug. 11 —, a premier provider of contract coating services, announced new pilot coating capabilities for low-cost, small-run and experimental toll coating projects. With its new state-of-the-art pilot coating system, will provide roll coating (one, two and three roll; forward and reverse), gravure, Mayer rod, polishing bar, and slot die coating to supplement its extensive research and formulation services.

        Pilot coating enables customers to conduct small-scale production runs with the ability to quickly test and implement changes at a very low cost—without the drawback of having to stop production.’s pilot coating line will be located in the same facility as its production machines and will provide CDT, UV curing, hot air drying and lamination capabilities similar to the full scale lines. Using the same resources to execute development and scale-up enables to deliver world class development-to-production cycle times.

        “Many customers are coming to us with products utilizing very expensive raw materials, such as nano particle and precious metal solutions that can easily cost thousands of dollars per liter,” said Steve Moses, Product Manager for “Our ability to quickly and economically conduct pilot scale runs enables our customers to work on formulation and coating conditions using small amounts of raw materials, providing significantly lower development costs.” serves Fortune 100 customers as well as smaller companies, providing customers with the ideal coating process for their application. Current product and process development efforts include formulations for nanoparticle coatings, multi-layer solvent and aqueous coatings, as well as emulsion and dispersion preparation and delivery. services also include optical and photographic quality PET film manufacturing, extensive solutions preparation, advanced analytical lab capabilities and complete converting and packaging services.
