Films & Plastics
Plastic sheeting and film materials are most commonly used in the industrial market for abrasion resistance and insulation in applications such as small home appliances. Advantage Converting combines its material science expertise with precision conversion services to meet the unique requirements of your application.
A variety of films and plastics can be converted to protect and insulate applications. Advantage Converting offers many different kinds of substrates, including thermoplastics, amorphous plastics, and biodegradable plastics. Our experts understand the unique chemical compositions and resulting behaviors of these various materials and can help you choose materials that reduce product weight, increase resiliency, and improve the user experience.
Q: When do I need a clean room?
Clean room manufacturing is primarily used when manufacturing sensitive materials that can be easily contaminated or affected by particles in the air. For example, at Advantage Converting, we have used our clean rooms to manufacture advanced wound care products, solar panel components, and vibration dampeners for the aerospace industry. However, a clean room can be used for any converted good. Our experts can work with you to determine clean room requirements for your project.
Q: What manufacturing processes does Advantage Converting perform in their clean rooms?
We can perform any manufacturing process in our clean rooms, including custom die cutting, laminating, slitting and rewinding, and roll-to-roll manufacturing.
Q: What is clean room manufacturing?
Clean room manufacturing is the use of an enclosed area with strict environmental controls to manufacture sensitive components. The controlled environment – or clean room – limits the presence of dust, airborne microbes, aerosol, and chemical vapors to prevent environmental contamination of sensitive components, such as those for medical, electronic, and aerospace applications.
Advantage Converting has multiple clean rooms that are available for all converted goods. Our clean rooms are certified as ISO 8 / Class 100,000 and ISO 7 / Class 10,000.
