Pilot Coaters

With a world-class pilot coater in Midland, Michigan, Trinseo is well equipped to study paper and board coating and finishing processes in a controlled environment. This state-of-the-art coating facility also plays a vital role in our customer-centric approach to product development. 

At the Midland pilot coater, customers can design new products and test paper coating components and formulations. The opportunity to carry out tests on systems that emulate customer equipment, at machine-running conditions, reduces the risk of future production stoppages on the customer side and also sparks new ideas.

Our pilot coater facility ensures access to high-level and practical Trinseo technical support and technological innovation.
