Product Development and Testing

We Understand Prototyping is Important

FLEXcon’s state-of-the-art Technology and Innovations Center was specifically designed to facilitate collaboration among our scientists from different disciplines – films, adhesives, release liners and coatings. Their daily interactions, along with the most up-to-date tools and equipment, enable the creation of customer-driven solutions.

When you have unique specifications for an application, your technical service representative will work directly with our product engineers and chemists to assess your needs, and then collaborate with you to develop the most appropriate solution. We will conduct in-house testing to ensure that the functional requirements of your end use application will be met, provide lab samples and produce trial runs. We will even develop custom test methods based on our knowledge of the end use application. Whatever the critical success factors are for your application, we will help you feel confident that the product will perform as required.

In FY17, we generated custom samples for over 575 companies.

Qualitative and Quantitative Analyses

We can also evaluate product components for both standard and application specific performance. We can provide qualitative and quantitative analyses as may be required for you to meet project specifications, regulatory compliance or other criteria.

In addition, our product specialists are continually assessing the latest developments in printing and converting equipment to proactively develop technologies that will enable you to immediately get the most ROI from any new equipment purchases.

Agency Recognition

We are able to conduct performance testing required for compliance with UL/cUL, BS 5609, ASTM and many others.

Having a DAP certified lab means that we can certify our own materials for UL labeling, including print durability with a variety of inks and ribbons, which enables you to adopt UL-recognized products with the inks included. We will even reimburse UL’s basic adoption fee, so if you adopt our UL listing as-is, the net cost to you will be zero. Visit our UL page for detailed information.

Infinite Possibilities

We’re always looking forward with a mind toward filling unmet needs in the industry. If you’ve got a crazy new idea for pressure-sensitive materials, let’s hear it. We’d love to get the creative juices flowing!
