Mark's Coating Matters

Coating Matters... it really does! I had a disagreement with a colleague once about the value of fluid coating. He argued that coating is simply one of the steps in the converting process; no different than extruding the film or slitting the final roll of tape. I argued that a slice of film without glue can't add value to the final customer. How much adhesive you put on the substrate, what chemistry is in the adhesive, how the adhesive is applied to the film – this can change a simple film into anything from a road sign to a brightness enhancement film for a TV to a household box sealing tape.
