Chemsultants International recently completed the installation of two new pilot coating lines at its Product and Process Development Center in Mentor, OH, USA. The center, located at Chemsultants’ corporate headquarters and laboratory facilities, is part of a 10-acre technology campus.
Designed and built by the Chemsultants International engineering staff, the new coaters join two existing lines. The new TPC-1 and TPC-2 coaters further expand the company’s coating, drying and curing capabilities of solvent-based, water-based and UV curable adhesives and coatings.
The new lines are located in white rooms providing customers the capability of a clean coating environment required for many electronics, medical and food grade applications. Offering coating widths up to 26”, they can be configured for several different coating methods, with multi-zone convection or IR assisted drying, and UV curing capabilities. In addition to slitting and rewinding of coated products, Chemsultants International provides mixing and compounding services as well.
The Product and Process Development Center operates under an internal quality management system. The center is able to provide formula development, formula modification and off-coater product testing services, and is supported on-site by an A2LA accredited laboratory staff of scientists and technicians.
Chemsultants International is a leader in the research, development and testing of polymer-based products and technologies. The markets it serves include aerospace, medical, electronics, tape and label, pharmaceutical, automotive, and more.
