Challenge and Goals
Whitlam Label Company needed to create a solution for part suppliers that would serve as a protective barrier to prevent proprietary solvent chemicals from penetrating into the component part which would be exposed to strong solvent chemicals and extreme heat (150 degrees Celsius) for an extended period of time during the manufacturing process. Any exposure to the chemicals would damage a magnetic assembly within the component. The protective barrier had to bond strongly enough to prevent any chemical penetration but still be removable.
Whitlam Label Company looked to FLEXcon to create a durable protective barrier for industrial parts. Together, the companies created an innovative solution to meet the needs of key parts suppliers. The film and adhesive combination is strong enough to withstand the manufacturing process, yet it is cleanly removable, meaning it does not leave any adhesive residue on the final assembly.
“We have been a FLEXcon customer for years and are thrilled we were able to work together to successfully develop a custom solution that meets the needs of industrial manufacturers," said Michelle Shaieb, Whitlam Label Company. "This project was exceptional because the solution needed to be extremely durable and yet cleanly removable.”
