Drytac predict strong future for the liquid coating

Liquid lamination has a strong future according to Drytac which expects to have a proprietary manufacturing plant in the UK early in 2010.
Despite widespread acceptance in the marketplace that film laminate is on the wane whilst liquid lamination in on the up, Drytac is committing itself to servicing the liquid laminate user-base and has recently invested ?150,000 in an advanced pressure chambered doctor blade coating unit to aid the application of coatings and ensure an ultra smooth finish. This is compatible with both water and solvent-based coatings.

With the industry guru Jim Tatum representing Drytac's liquid coating division and its recent purchase of a US graphic liquid coating division based in Ohio in June this year, the potential expected in this new technology is clear. As a result of this purchase, the second by the company since that of AFS in 2008, Drytac now has a proprietary liquid manufacturing and bottling plant in Canada and it expects to replicate that in the UK next year.
