Custom Coating/ Toll Coating Process:
D&K Coating Technologies works with clients to offer a variety of coating options. Customers can provide raw materials or allow D&K to source these through an extensive supplier network. A 3 – 4 week lead time is typically required for custom coating and toll coating projects.
State-of-the-art process controls regulate all coating operations including tension, speed, temperature, air flow, oven pressure, evaporation rate, and roll size. Integrated beta scanners also continuously measure coat weight application and allow for precision adjustment to coating dies. Our thermal adhesive extrusion department in Elk Grove Village, IL also offers precision thermal adhesive extrusion for custom coated and toll coated products of all types.
Quality Assurance and Reporting:
Quality assurance testing is performed on every master roll until process capability has been confirmed, typically after 30 master rolls. After that time, Q.A. testing is performed on every third master roll. Rolls are tested for adhesive and physical properties including peel, shear, thickness, gloss, and more. A certificate of analysis along with yield/material inventory report will be available within seven days after a run.
Three cross web samples from the end of each roll are retained and stored for two years. Each roll includes a roll report and defect map in the packing list.
Regardless of the final application, D&K is committed to providing the best possible custom coating and toll coating solutions at an affordable price. D&K respects customer privacy and maintains utmost confidentiality with all custom coating projects.
