Coating Services

Since our founding in 1973, Dal-Bac Manufacturing Co., Inc. has grown and expanded to become an important niche coater of solvent based pressure sensitive adhesives to customers in a diverse range of industries. While we sometimes employ meyer rod metering and apply alternate coatings (like anti-fog solutions), both water-borne and solvent based, directly and transferred, our core coating strength is the application of solvent based pressure sensitive adhesives. We transfer coat these to a wide variety of substrates, including fabrics, films, foams, and papers in widths up to 61”. With our custom built equipment, we process materials accurately and cost-effectively.

Our robust production capabilities  allow us to consistently and reliably meet a broad range of coating requirements. Our technical managers ensure the substrate and coating are compatible and are the best possible materials for the job. We engineer our process to deliver a uniform coating in a precise layer from .001” to .005” in thickness and can even offer them in a linear patterned (wet, dry, wet, dry, etc.) form. 

One of the most common applications we handle is the creation of custom pressure sensitive adhesive tapes. By applying adhesives to specialized consigned substrates, our customers can, in turn, offer unique companion products to their primary product offerings. 

As an ISO certified company, we have a robust quality management system to ensure that everything, from incoming raw materials to the final product, meets or exceeds customer requirements. We measure and inspect characteristics such as coating thickness, coating weight, residual solvents/water, and bond strength to ensure your products perform as expected. Agile and efficient, we can process most work within a two- to four-week timeframe and have the flexibility to manage rush orders for situations where time is a critical factor.
