Leverage the power of Kodak’s extensive
capability for developing thin-film products
using a roll-to-roll manufacturing process
• You bring :
• Your material technology and know-how
• An understanding of the needs of your target market
• Kodak provides:
• Technology to convert your materials into a customerready, thin-film product prototype
• Environmental conditioning to simulate product aging
• Physical property testing to simulate expected usage

Integrated Development Services
Utilize some or all of a full range of services designed
to develop your materials into thin-film products
• Custom material preparation by compounding or
formulating in an aqueous or solvent solution
• Small-scale, thin-film coating on flexible supports in a
roll-to-roll process
• Final product assembly using lamination, interleaving,
slitting, winding, or chopping
• Environmental conditioning to assess the stability of
your proprietary materials as they age
• Physical property evaluation to determine how your
product will perform in your customers’ hands

Testing Services
Environmental conditioning
Test chambers let you subject your materials to
critical environmental factors. Your materials can be
subjected to a single condition or a combination of
conditions to simulate product aging. Critical
environmental factors include

Physical property testing
Physical property tests let you evaluate the performance
characteristics of your materials. These tests are
conducted in precisely controlled environments using
rigorously calibrated test fixtures. All our tests can be
run at a range of temperature and humidity conditions.
Specific characteristics to measure include



Mechanical strength
Adhesive forces
Friction
Surface characteristics
Flatness (curling)
Dimensional stability
