Adhesive Converting to Meet Your Exact Needs
Tekra specializes in custom slitting, sheeting and laminating 3M adhesives and other materials to meet exact customer needs.
Our in-house laminating department will add or remove secondary liners, apply over-laminates, and add or remove masking - to name but a few services. Laminations may be applied to a variety of substrates available through Tekra, such as polyester from DuPont Teijin Films or polycarbonate from SABIC Innovative Plastics. Or, through our toll-converting lamination services, Tekra will apply adhesives to customer-supplied materials.
Our custom laminate program puts our customers in the design seat. With over 100 combinations to choose from, customers are able to pick their ideal adhesive and substrate combination. The component matrix is designed to help customers check adhesive/substrate compatibility. The 3M™ laminating adhesive chart helps users select the adhesive best suited for the application.
We are set up to run roll-to-roll laminations in gauges from 0.00048 to 0.03. Forty inch diameter rolls, with widths ranging from 15 to 56 inches, are comfortably within our laminating capacity.
Custom white room laminations, combining any variation of substrates, adhesives and liners are a particular Tekra specialty.
