Our Expertises

Chemical formulation

Specialized in the industrial formulation of inks, the company is the world leader in the manufacture of thermal transfer ribbons. Drawing from its expertise, ARMOR makes its cutting-edged know-how in chemical formulation available to battery manufacturers.

Over the years, the group has successfully developed an extensive portfolio of conductive particles (graphites, carbon blacks, acetylene blacks, carbon nanotubes, graphenes, etc.) as well as a wide range of binding systems with diverse properties (hydrophilic, hydrophobic…) required by industrial partners.

This work contributes directly to its continuously expanding range of primers, enabling ARMOR to offer innovative coating solutions to meet the performances required (adhesion, chemical protection, electrical conductivity, etc.).

High precision coating

With a strong expertise in the coating of ultra-thin layers onto thin films (from 4 to 15 µm) and an annual production of over 2 billion linear meters, ARMOR offers a wide range of coating and printing techniques for large-scale industrial production, such as flexography, gravure rolls, slot die, rotary screen coating and printing, etc.

These diverse technologies allow the use of a wide range of thin substrates such as metal foils (copper, aluminum, titanium, nickel) and plastic films (PET, PP/PE).

With coating speeds ranging from 80 meters to 1000 meters per minute, ARMOR develops its own processes and sets precision at the heart of its operations. ARMOR ensures the coating’s quality through an online control process on all the surface area of the foil and quality monitoring throughout the production process (thickness, 2D, visual aspect, etc.).
