Hosted at by Adchem Corp. (Riverhead, NY), an on-line conversion tool kit automatically calculates conversions unique to the tape industry to simplify product ordering. Featuring equations for roll length, area, thickness, weight, force, pricing, and other factors, the time-saving tool kit was designed with nonengineers in mind. "We specifically made the site simple to use so everyone could benefit from this tool," explains business development manager Walt Polifka. "Just enter one or two variables, hit the calculate button, and it does the rest," he says. Among other tasks, the kit can be used to determine required tape quantities and to ensure the size compatibility of tape spools with OEM process machinery.

Adchem supplies a variety of adhesive tape systems, including films, tissues, foams, fabric and double-coated papers; transfer tapes; one-side-coated products; and specialty materials. The tapes are available with solid adhesives or solvent acrylic and rubber adhesives. Sample product applications include sterilization bags and surgical drapes.
