STM continually invests in production equipment, specifically designed for coating unique pressure sensitive adhesives. Our adhesive coating lines have precision controls measurement devices that ensure consistent adhesive film thickness are versatile enough to process a wide variety of films, foils and papers. Adhesive coating is done with either reverse roll or gravure coating heads, depending on the adhesive type, coat weight and application. These coating heads are designed to efficiently process film thicknesses from .25 mil to 10 mils, coating weights from .5 mils to 5 mils and web widths up to 60 inches.
Multi-zone drying ovens optimize the performance attributes of their pressure sensitive adhesive tapes. Other in-line processes include priming, release coating, corona treatment and lamination of secondary substrates. In addition, STM offers selective converting process in rewind slitting, lathe slitting, die cutting, logging and laminating.
