Whether you are creating new products or improving existing ones, the team and Universal Chemicals and Coatings is here to help. Our coil applied coating and adhesive chemistries have a wide range of applications and can also be adapted to meet new demands. Contact UNICHEM early on in your planning and development process to ensure the chemistry meets your specific requirements and provides the best quality and value as a key element of your products.
Understanding Coil Coating and Adhesives
This section of our site has been created in order to help you both understand the coil process, learn the advantages (and yes, sometimes limitations), and consider how our adhesives and coatings can work for you. We will draw your attention to the more informational pages on the site so that you can understand the usages and applications and try to keep back from a lot of the highly technical information provided throughout the rest of the site.
Applications and Solutions for Products Across Many Industries
Prepainted metal and coil applied adhesives can be used for a vast array of products for use in a large number of industries including:
It can be quite easy to talk about the things our chemistries have already been user for – but our engineers and chemists are always looking forward to creating custom solutions for products and applications that have never been done before. In general terms, our line of products can be used for the following broad purposes (just to name a few)…
General Features of Coatings
- Longevity: Prepainted Metals in products are more resistant to chipping and peeling, making your product last longer.
- Rust/Corrosion Resistance
- Antimicrobial Protection
General Features of Adhesives
- Adhesion across Media: Using a bucket of glue to connect some materials to metal just won’t cut it. UNICHEM has solutions to connect metal to Vinyl, PVC, Polyethylene and Polypropylene, TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin), and many more.
Information and Case Studies
Our blog is an amazing resource for learning more about our chemistries and the applicable industries and products. We also have a growing collection of Case Studies and real world usage scenarios for inspiration and guidance.
