Paper Films and Foils Measurement

The Paper Film and Foil Converting business covers a broad range of coating processes and end-user products. The manufacturing processes are often complex, requiring specialized measurements and web gauging applications expertise. Frequently the coating combination represents the greatest value-added component of converted paper, film and foil products. Therefore it is vital that the right coat weight measurement technique is employed. NDC has the widest range of gauges dedicated to coat weight measurement within the web gauging business, combined with in-depth applications knowledge. For example, NDC's near infrared (NIR) gauges offer solutions for paper, plastic, metallic and metalized films substrates. Also, NDC provides x-ray and nucleonic gauging solutions depending on the application. NDC’s gauges can measure coatings ranging in thickness from microns to millimeters including complex coating formulations.

The range of key coating constituents commonly measured by NDC includes:

  • China clay
  • Calcium carbonate
  • Latex
  • Acrylics
  • Adhesives
  • Carbonless capsules
  • Pigments
  • PVDC barriers
  • Surface preparations
  • Lacquers

NDC’s applications expertise extends across a broad range of coating techniques to provide the industry's most effective web gauging system. These solutions provide accurate coat weight measurement and controls that are independent of the substrates characteristics. NDC web gauging systems are able to optimize the coating process and deliver long-term results for the converting industry. For example:

  • Flat coat weight profiles
  • Optimized coat weight
  • Improved materials usage
  • Improved process efficiency
  • Reduced scrap
