OUR SOLUTION, YOUR SUCCESS
“The airless technology for spray application is hands down better than any water-based system that I have witnessed. It takes all the glue fog [away] and puts [the adhesive] on the product that is being laminated rather than up an exhaust or settling on surrounding surfaces. We were fortunate to be able to work with UPACO on some of the development of the systems.”
