Cellotape has earned the trust of manufacturers throughout the automotive industry for top-notch, state-of-the-art graphic solutions for everything from instrumentation to aftermarket parts. The automotive industry has exacting standards for quality, including adherence to the QS 9000 automotive quality standard, a derivative of ISO 9000. Cellotape is ISO 9001:2008 certified; we have well-defined processes and procedures, and we can provide quality and process documentation including PFMEA (Potential Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), cPK, AIGA (Automotive Industry Action Group) flowcharts, control plans, and first articles.
Many customers use our In-mold decoration (IMD) expertise to differentiate their automotive instrumentation, panels, and housing with high-impact graphics. Substantial benefits in durability, cost, and time-to-market also become possible with this process. Many of our automotive IMD applications are backlit parts, requiring close-tolerance registration with light transmission areas next to absolute opacity areas. Cellotape has state-of-the-art screen printing equipment with electronic registration that can maintain the tight tolerances required by our customers. We also lead the label industry in research and development of printing techniques that are stable during the molding process, with no distortion of the resultant image. Finally, we provide trapless color on color processing to meet precision color standards.
