What is Secondary Processing?

The secondary manufacturing process refers to additional work to be done to a product before it reaches its consumers. These are applied to PVC materials that aren’t ready to be incorporated into their final assembly. Before distribution, it must undergo a series of secondary finishing processes to be recognized as a finished or completed part.

Businesses implementing secondary processing in their production process save time and money because they won’t have to outsource additional services to a third-party vendor. At Adam Plastics, we prioritize the project’s needs by offering cutting-edge plastic converting services to deliver outstanding solutions quickly and efficiently.

Premier Secondary Processing Manufacturing Services

We focus on providing innovative plastic converting and secondary processing solutions, ensuring your project requirements are met. With the proper conversion method, you can turn PVC films into high-performance products that meet stringent specifications and product standards.

Our converting and secondary finishing processes include the following:

  • Slitting: Slitting is a converting process where PVC rolls are accurately and consistently cut into predetermined lengths and widths. The master or parent roll is fed into the slitting machine, which will come out of the unwind, while the slitter cuts the material into smaller pieces, depending on your specifications. Once the materials are slit, the strips are rewound into smaller rolls for easier handling and transport. The slitting process allows for precision and customization, ensuring your PVC films are cut to the exact sizes.
  • Sheeting: Sheeting refers to taking large pieces of film and turning them into sheets of film in specific sizes. For instance, 54″ wide master roll PVC films turned into 8.5″ x 11″ sizes for specialty projects. Some sheeting applications include signage, vinyl lettering, and digital and screen printing.
  • Laminating: Laminating is a secondary manufacturing process that combines several layers of PVC films or other substrates to create a multi-layered plastic sheet. It’s commonly employed to improve the physical properties of PVC films, such as durability and strength. Typical applications of laminated PVC films include packaging, decorative elements, and protective covering.
  • Interleaving: Interleaved PVC films refer to layering two or more types of films to create a composite material with improved properties. We use this process to handle the PVC film with ease when processing.
  • Converting (adhesive applications): We specialize in plastic converting for adhesive applications, adding adhesives to PVC films and other plastic materials to provide bond strength and improve product performance.
  • Die Cutting: Die cutting is a secondary process that utilizes large hydraulic presses to cut out specific shapes and patterns from films and some of our other plastic materials. It’s the best solution for those wanting to achieve intricate or complicated shapes and sizes for their products. Some die-cutting applications are plastic parts for electronic devices and blister packaging.
  • Slot Punching: Slot punching is a method that punches slotted holes used for hanging of PVC goods or other plastic materials. It’s ideal for creating products that require slot holes for easy display, such as banners, posters, and packaging applications.
  • Top Coating: Top coats are applied on substrates as a base coat for sealing and protection. The goal is to prevent dust and dirt particles from settling on the plastic surface. It also helps to maintain a glossy finish and improve durability.
