What is Toll Coating?

Your supply, our expertise.

Many media manufacturers may not have the capability or knowledge to produce specialist coatings in the way that a coating company would do. As such, coating work is often sub-contracted to specialist companies to add a final layer to a substrate, or as part of the manufacturing process.

Aquabond have the capability to develop, test, and produce such coatings at scale to be the perfect contract coating partner. With a large warehouse and manufacturing space, Aquabond can coat and produce master reels, or a final product as box stock.
