Proven Track Record in the Energy Industry
The more traditional manufacturing industries typically use adhesive coatings. But, thanks to CTI’s coating application technologies, customers in emerging industries also benefit. For example, recently, a company that needed a light adhesive coating approached CTI. It was for an open, very lightweight, fiberglass material used in the wind and energy industry.
CTI started by collaborating with the client to thoroughly understand the needs of the project. Then, the experts at CTI were able to produce several variations for testing. Therefore, this allowed the client to determine which product would work best for their needs. Once this was determined, CTI began production of the product at a yearly volume of 3 million feet. The rolls for the coating were all 24 inches in diameter but varied in width. Thanks to CTI, the client is able to offer an improved product.
Perfect for Roofing Underlayment
CTI’s technologies are also perfect for commercial roofing manufacturers. Recently, a well-known roofing company needed to create a peel-and-stick product for industrial buildings. The client asked CTI to help develop the product before coating. CTI was able to help develop and refine the product before a full production run began. As such, the client was able to introduce the product to the market and test viability without investing in coating equipment. Using their equipment for 3’ and 6’ wide materials, CTI was able to produce and refine the product based on feedback. As a result, CTI now has expanded capabilities of 12-foot wide coating, which is the industry standard.
