ITW Dynatec’s TwinCoat Technology Finalist for Label Industry Global Awards

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Mettmann, Germany (July 31st, 2014)—For the 11th year, the Label Industry Global Awards has combed the globe to find and recognize the innovations that are impacting the label printing industry. ITW Dynatec is pleased to announce that its patent-pending technology TwinCoat has been named a finalist for one of the Label Industry Global Awards. Winners will be announced on September 9, 2014, during Labelexpo Americas in Chicago.

TwinCoat Technology

Producing a plastic label is a multi-faceted challenge, one that comes with complex considerations and, conventionally, high costs. A variety of product purposes and growing demands for higher quality bonding of different surfaces, as well as environmental regulations, are all forcing manufacturers increasingly to use an adhesive that's best suited to the application. That adhesive, however, is only a compromise.

Ideally, manufacturers would be able to use more than one adhesive, each chosen for its unique bonding characteristics, but until recently manufacturers had no choice because no technology existed with the ability to split the required amount of adhesive into two layers and to apply them simultaneously on a substrate.

TwinCoat changes all of that by allowing the application of two adhesives with one nozzle and a monumentally simplified adhesive changeover process. For the first time in history, TwinCoat offers the possibility to create an adhesive film with two different surfaces, whose individual characteristics can perfectly tailored to each material that has to stick together. Two layers combined in one. Highly transparent and streak-free.

TwinCoat is another advancement created by ITW Dynatec, as part of the company’s mission to create solutions to its customers’ biggest challenges.
