Pilot trial Services


All coating technologies under one roof, from laboratory to full scale pilot

KCL coating services provide valuable insight and information about coating performance in mill type of production process

KCL coating services is fully accustomed to developing new barrier products, replacing plastic components in the recipes with bio-based alternatives and testing new raw materials and technologies.

Depending on the phase and scale of your coating development, KCL can support you in numerous ways. We have experience from thousands of pilot coating trials and laboratry analyses, and our coating service platform covers the widest range of different application techniques from laboratory to full scale pilot.
