Collaborate With Appvion
Excellent products require flexible partnerships, so we look at the project holistically when you come to us for a custom coating solution. Appvion believes strategic innovation in partnerships is needed to generate significant value for consumers, our customers, and our organization. It challenges us to look beyond established business boundaries and mental models to participate in a creative exploration of the realm of possibilities to deliver a superior solution.
The technology process begins with our team of scientists and chemists in our research and development group at our innovation center. We pride ourselves on creating integrated coating solutions. Our R&D team intimately understands how molecules work, not just what they do, allowing each layer of our coating structures to have the most optimized formula.
Rapid Design Capabilities
Positive product development outcomes occur during the design and application of coatings at our world-class pilot facility. We can immediately analyze, design, test, and review product coatings’ chemical, physical, and performance attributes, which advances product development and enables rapid end-user feedback.
The superior instrumentation in our five Technical Association of the Pulp & Paper Industry (TAPPI) labs advances the prototyping process, allowing us to get a tangible product sample in hand quickly. This process enables rapid evaluation by our team and, most importantly, our customers.
