What is custom converting?

Custom converting or custom materials converting is any process that takes original material and modifies it to be the specific format needed for your manufacturing process. Some of the most common converting techniques include cutting, folding, adhering, laminating, and assembly. However, the possibilities of converting are endless to enhance the look, size, durability, and design of your product.

While converting may sound straightforward, it is actually a sophisticated process that requires knowledge of both materials and techniques. At Tapecon, we have over 100 years of expertise in both areas, and take great pride in finding the best converting approach for your specific application.
