Chemsultants International’s unique blend of new product development expertise and custom coating capabilities can streamline your development of web-coated products. We can help you to take products to market faster and improve existing product performance to meet critical market needs. We provide:

  • An expert staff of chemists and scientists to assist in the product development process including formulating, compounding, mixing and rheological modification of adhesives, sealants and specialty coatings

  • Custom web coating expertise available utilizing various coating methods that optimize the production process

  • Coating services for experimental, prototype and contract manufacturing

  • Pilot, scale up or contract production services in a facility operating under a certified ISO 9001:2015 system

  • A Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) for solvent coatings to destroy up to 99% of all volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and odors through the process of high-temperature thermal oxidation

Utilize Chemsultants’ innovative product development and pilot coating services to develop your products, improve production processes and ultimately grow your market position. We can develop coating and laminating solutions as well as adhesive or sealant bonding products, and specialty coatings tailored to your end-use applications.

Chemsultants International’s largest coating line, the Universal Coater, has multiple coating capabilities and a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) for solvent coatings. The Universal Coater allows us to address the most difficult and demanding coating issues. With our full-service coating and process development facility, Chemsultants International has become a reliable contract manufacturer to many companies.

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO)

The regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) is used for the treatment of exhaust air that uses a bed of ceramic material to absorb heat from the exhaust gas. It then uses this captured heat to preheat the incoming process gas stream and destroy air pollutants emitted from process exhaust streams at temperatures ranging from      815 °C (1,500 F) to 980 °C (1,800 F). The RTO destroys air toxins, odors, VOCs, and hazardous air pollutants that are discharged in industrial process exhausts.

We care about solving problems without creating new ones. Our RTO enables us to work safely with solvents so you don't have to.
