THREE TYPES OF TPU FILM SUPPLIER...
WHICH DO YOU HAVE?
There are three basic types of urethane film suppliers. One is the high volume, commodity manufacturer. They are good at extruding a few basic formulations with standard resins that fill certain market needs, relying on efficiency and volume to stay competitive.
Second are the "me too" companies who make the same basic products as the first but carve out market share through price and delivery.
The third type asks the market what it needs and then listens carefully. That's Argotec. We work closely with both customers and resin suppliers to create films specifically engineered to the exact needs of a customer's particular application. This approach may sound simple, but you would be surprised how often manufacturers fail to simply listen.
THE ARGOTEC INNOVATION CENTER
LEADING BY INNOVATION
Perhaps the best example of Argotec's on-going commitment to innovation is the rededication of the Adams Road plant as a stand-alone facility devoted to research and the development of new and improved urethane films and processes, both our own and those of our customers. The industry's first-of-its-kind facility is aptly named the Argotec Innovation Center.
In addition to a complete product development laboratory and post-production testing operation, the Innovation Center contains both a flat-die lab line, and a blown-film lab line, as well as three fully functional production-capable extrusion lines housed in two state-of-the-art hardwalled clean rooms.
Add a technical staff devoted to the development of new and better types of polyurethane film as well as the improvement of their processing, both in our own and our customers' facilities, and the result is a resource unique to the polyurethane films industry.
CUSTOMER-CENTRIC TECHNICAL SUPPORT
The engineers dedicated to the Innovation Center stand ready to interact with process engineers at the customer's location or ours to ensure that Argotec films perform properly in their production processes. They are also available to test the newest resins, engineer distinct formulations, and troubleshoot both new and existing applications.
The new Argotec Innovation Center is a resource that will allow us to provide unequaled technical service. Time-to-market for new applications will shrink and the state of the urethane film industry will continue to advance for decades to come.
Argotec will persevere in setting the standard for innovation, capability and commitment to excellence in film extrusion and customer satisfaction. Yes, Argotec is the driving technical force in today's polyurethane film industry -- the future of TPU film and sheet.
