CPFilms, Inc. has announced plans to install new state-of-the-art metallizing production equipment at its manufacturing facility in Martinsville, VA. The new metallizing line, which joins three other metallizing lines already in place, will significantly increase the company's capacity. "Acquiring this new metallizing line will help us continue to grow and enhance our solar control window films business, as well as take advantage of emerging new business opportunities in the precision coating segment," said Keith Dalton, vice president of Coating & Laminating and Vacuum Coating. CPFilms' new metallizing line will be housed in a specially constructed 9,000 sq. ft. addition to its Martinsville plant facility. In keeping with other cleanroom production areas, the new unit will be operated in a climate-controlled environment. The metallizing line will feature digital optical monitoring capabilities to control the consistency of the metal deposition on the film. Plasma treatment capabilities will also be incorporated to meet increasing market requirements for enhanced adhesion of metal depositions to film substrates.
