Hundreds of coating methods have been developed to meet distinct product specification needs, providing a wide range of process and performance characteristics. This breadth is useful in addressing new products as well as for improving and upgrading cost and quality of existing products.
Carestream Contract Manufacturinghelps customers identify the best possible coatings for their needs. We evaluate coating formulations to fit a range of requisite parameters when choosing a coating method. Many of the coating methods we offer were developed as branded products by our predecessor companies 3M and Kodak; they are characterized by exacting precision and cleanliness required by photographic and similar processes.
