In this newsletter and on our blog, we share technical insights from subject-matter experts, updates about contract manufacturing capabilities, and details about where you can find us at upcoming industry events.
Resisting the penetration of moisture and gasses is vital for many types of products, including pharmaceutical, food packaging and electronics. Moisture barrier materials are normally applied as coatings or membranes to help protect sensitive products. Carestream applies barrier coatings with permeability values to fit each application.

Hardcoated films improve performance and protect against abrasions, scratches and chemicals, either in finished products or during manufacturing processes. Carestream devised a stringent hardness testing process for hardcoat films used in
optical applications. We tailor our testing methods to meet applicable standards and individual project requirements.
Casting is a highly precise, low-cost process for manufacturing flexible thin, flat components such as acoustic membranes, battery and fuel cell separators, and energy recovery membranes. Carestream's engineers help determine the best coating or casting method for each project. We solve casting's unique challenges to optimize quality, performance and cost-efficient commercial production.FULL ARTICLE

high line speeds. We create stand-alone "free films" by casting aqueous dispersions, polymers
dissolved in organic solvents or 100% solids formulations. These solutions may be cast onto a
release liner with specific properties to manage film quality and specific release requirements or
adhered to a desired substrate.
