Plastic Film Coating
Do More With Your Plastic Substrate Than You Thought Possible
Building on our position as a converter and distributor of high-end plastic films, Tekra adds value and functionality by applying a variety of proprietary coatings to plastic substrates on one or both sides. We can also provide project coating, toll coating, and other coating services using either Tekra or customer supplied specialty substrates via one of our three coaters. By clicking on the video on the right, you can see a quick animation of our coater capabilities. By using our coatings, customers find they can frequently do more with plastic than they ever thought possible — whether it's a print receptive coating, a functional coating or a coating to enhance product appearance.
With pre-engineered products like Marnot® and Terrapin™, Tekra has held a leading position in coated plastics worldwide since the installation of our first coating line in 1984. Through newer products such as Dura-Go®, ProTek®, DuraKote™ and additions to our Terrapin line, we are elevating coated plastics to the next level of quality and performance.
Custom Plastic Film Coating
If we don't currently have the coating you need, odds are we can make it for you. In fact, tailoring a custom product to a highly specific customer need is perhaps Tekra's greatest competitive advantage.
With a fully staffed Research and Development lab, as well as a wide range of proprietary coating formulations, we can rapidly produce coatings designed to meet your precise and often complex needs. We can help you refine your specifications and define critical to quality variables in a wide range of applications.
Getting you the right coating on the right film is our top priority. Through advanced chemistries and a world-class coating facility that includes both white room grade and Class 10,000 certified clean room coating lines, Tekra consistently helps our customers improve products and build their businesses - today and into the future.
