Customer trials include layer multiplier testing, new product development, product cost evaluation, primer requirements, and barrier testing. The addition of an Enercon Industries ozone-generation system allows evaluation of the organoleptic properties associated with high speed extrusion coating with the use of ozone for enhanced adhesion. A Flynn Flame Treater allows evaluation of surface-treatment characteristics of flame versus corona treatment.
As the pilot line includes all of the components associated with a flexible packaging machine, customers in emerging markets have been particularly interested in the line's capability for developing extrusion-coated products from the traditional solvent and solventless structures as their production runs continue to increase.
