High Technology Media Polishing Pad
A customer providing precision polishing pads needed a high-quality, removable adhesive system that could not be satisfied with a typical double-faced tape.
Shawsheen developed a double-faced tape that provided the removable system that would work in the slurry system and a lamination side adhesive that offered a permanent, destructive bond to the high performance polishing media.
This solution is currently under user testing.
Embroidery Customer Seeking Paper Tape Product for Large Sewing Applications
A manufacture-distributor required an embroidery product to temporarily secure sections of large garments that were NOT to receive embroidery. Large embroidered items require significant securing and blocking to prevent accidental stitching. Home sewing customers found that existing tapes worked well but found it both expensive and unavailable in the right sizing for their needs. The distributor wanted to offer a product with equal quality at a lower cost and which would be available colors for promotional purposes.
SC&C utilized its extensive sourcing connections to find and test the proper paper tape substrate with an existing, removable PSA to validate the concept. Our direct coating, rewinding and slitting capabilities allowed us to produce a roll size that was consistent with the user’s needs at a good price point. With success of our trials, we worked with the paper supplier to multiple colors for the scale and production runs.
In under 5 months, we delivered a customized item with an excellent margin and proved again to a major distributor that we can meet a need with a fast turnaround and a quality product.
Designing Ophthalmic Products for Developing Economies
A major distributor brought an opportunity to us to replace an off-shore, marginal quality product that a large customer buying group needed to replace. The distributor had limited room on price and needed a fast turn to replace an unreliable source who promised both low price and solid performance.
Modifying our adhesive formulas and altering our processing, we designed a mid-grade pad material and qualified the new construction with the customer at a price point that the market could accept.
We achieved 100% replacement of unreliable source within a 6 to 9 month period with “millions of pads” cut and supplied with 100% satisfaction.
Novel Fusible Disposable to Match Industry Standard
Develop a PSA coated (single and double-coated) fusible to match the performance of an industry standard. Our customer needed a competitive offering to complete their retail line and compete in the market. The product had to be launched rapidly to take advantage of a short-term supply disruption in the market.
We utilized prior needle-friendly PSA work that was already commercialized for the embroidery industry, along with coating methods developed for sensitive materials like elastic tape. We modified both the adhesive and the process to launch a total of 6 SKU’s in 3 months.
In 3 months, we were able to test and ship a significant volume of product for our customer, providing and rapid revenue growth and customer development for their retail partners.
