Avery Dennison Corporation
The spirit of curiosity, new challenges in the marketplace and Avery Dennison's position as a global leader in the materials science industry drive us to develop and expand our core capabilities while introducing new material innovations and solutions for the world's manufacturers, converters and consumers.
Whether the application is postage stamps or high-performance freight labels, we engage our industry experience and materials science expertise to develop a complete array of standard or specialized pressure-sensitive adhesives that can function with virtually any surface—including metal, glass, plastics and wood.
We create pressure-sensitive materials with numerous facestock and adhesion-permanence options, enabling our customers and converters to choose the appearance, dimensions, performance and functional properties they need.
Our adhesive materials meet a range of specific requirements, from repositionability or antimicrobial properties to moisture resistance and performance through extreme temperatures. This capability allows us to create customized adhesives with unique functions that meet our customer's exact requirements and augment the value of their products.
We have experience in the application of high-speed coatings that increase the functionality, usability and visibility of countless customer products.
This process deposits a thin layer of one or more materials onto a roll with high precision, imparting additional qualities and functions to the roll material. We are able to cost-effectively apply a multitude of materials to the broadest range of substrates at high speeds and with great consistency.
Our core capabilities include roll coating, die coating and curtain coating, but that is only the beginning. Our technical expertise in high-speed coating positions Avery Dennison to meet current and future customer needs in the areas of photovoltaic, medical and security solutions.We have experience in the application of high-speed coatings that increase the functionality, usability and visibility of countless customer products.
Our suite of precision roll-based manufacturing processes can enhance rolls of paper, plastics or other materials with a broad range of performance functions and features. These processes help improve the effectiveness, performance and overall value of our customers' products.
Our roll-to-roll capabilities include printing, die-cutting, laminating, perforating, splitting, zone coding, embossing or a combination of these, enabling us to add specialized functions to materials. For example, our FlexisTM Steam Valve is a multi-layered laminate for pre-cooked foods that keeps contents hermetically sealed until heated to a pre-determined temperature.
We work with many precision-based roll processes, as well as a variety of converting transformation steps, whether or not they currently exist. We are also adept with web-based converting products, complex to ultra-complex labels, in-line transformations, and many other applications.
We apply our expertise in chemistries and technologies to develop functional material coatings that enhance the functionality of roll or sheet form papers, plastic films and other materials. Our topcoats and other coatings enhance the value of customer products in numerous ways, from making the film printable and more durable, to adding a silicon release liner.
Our expanding material science capabilities in fields such as nano techonology will enable us to invent and implement the next generation of functional coating materials, including next-generation coatings for photovoltaics, optics, security applications and anti-microbial solutions.
Our array of extruded thermoplastic films can add imaginative design to packaging and amplify a product's message to consumers. From clear and flexible labeling materials for squeeze bottles to roll-fed shrink films for contoured containers, extruded films add sophistication to any product.
Whatever the application, we deliver films that meet our customers' unique requirements. Our advanced technology films are used with tapes and airline tags, compliance labels, packaged goods, automotive decoration and much more.
Avery Dennison's RFID solutions have proven to increase inventory accuracy, process and supply-chain efficiencies by enabling companies to track their products from point-of-production to point-of-sale.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method that stores and remotely retrieves data via a passive inlay and active RFID reader technology.
We provide RFID tagging solutions and inlays that work with industry standard Electronic Product Code (EPC) hardware and software, including data management, printing and encoding capabilities.
Microreplication is a roll-to-roll process that uses heat and pressure to form microstructures on long rolls of polymers of different materials. Avery Dennison utilizes microreplication to mass-produce very precise structures in a variety of polymer films and provide specialty customers, with micron-scale precision, high-density materials at a relatively low cost.
We use our microreplication expertise to create highly engineered optical films that channel light for optimal reflection, as well as optical films that maximize refractive light by sending it in the desired direction.
Digital information may dominate, but print is alive and well around the world. Our manufacturing capabilities accommodate a complete range of printing systems and inks, ranging from UV-cured to solvent and water-based systems. Avery Dennison’s printing and imaging capabilities include offset lithography, flexography, gravure, screen, and digital printing.
Our printing and imaging technologies can be used for a broad spectrum of product needs, including garment care labels, tickets and tags, and postage stamps, and industrial and automotive labels.
