Our manufacturing capabilities for cutting and functionalisation of surfaces

We are commited to deliver converted or cut materials in their most finished possible form

The purpose of laminating is to combine materials to enhance the properties of a single film.

Lamination is a process whereby an adhesive layer is applied to a material.

ADDEV Materials uses various processes to cut all soft, flexible products into specified formats such as A4, A3 or any other dimensions.
