What is durable printing and coating?
Durable printing and coating, also known as industrial printing, is the process of adding visual elements to a product or component. While the printed material may not serve as the primary purpose of the device, the graphics or coating adds some value or function. Whether it’s to enhance brand visibility, improve product durability, present product information, or anything in between, durable printing and coating can help you improve market competitiveness.
At Tapecon, we understand that no two customers or projects are alike. That’s why we get to know your product and specifications before we recommend the optimal printing or coating solution.

Cutting-edge digital printing
Our digital printing is exceptionally dynamic and produces impressively vibrant graphics. We can print resolutions up to 1200 x 3600 dpi, and on substrates without the need for a special topcoat. Plus, the process is sustainable - producing no VOCs, reducing wasted materials, saving energy, and more.
Durable screen printing
If your product needs to be resistant to outdoor elements, fading colors, UV light, chemicals, or abrasions, then our durable screen printing process is an excellent solution. Beyond traditional graphics, our state-of-the-art screen stations are capable of printing in rolls and sheets, selective and zoned adhesives, custom textures, and optically clear materials.
For larger volume runs, flexographic printing may be just what you need. This printing process uses a flexible plate and rollers to print onto your desired substrate. Converting processes, such as laminating, die-cutting and slitting, can also be performed on these presses, allowing for more manufacturing efficiency.
