Partnerships for Multilayer Coating of Automotive Components

For over 100 years, Carestream has worked in the highly regulated FDA environment to manufacture quality medical imaging films. We capitalize on these same multilayer coating techniques and high-speed, wide-web assets and technologies to meet the rigorous regulatory requirements of the automotive industry. As a leading innovator in simultaneous, precision multilayer coating technology and manufacturing, we provide our automotive partners with significant process development advantages. Whether coating products for the interior, exterior or mechanical components, our project-ready coating and manufacturing facilities can help partners develop demanding, precision-coated structures for large volume, custom coated automotive components meeting OEM specifications.

We actively seek growth partnerships, including joint development, manufacturing partnership or full joint venture, which combine customer product IP and market channels with our high-speed roll-to-roll processing, quality systems and worldwide presence to bring new products through commercialization quickly and efficiently at reduced manufacturing cost.
