Prototype your project to your specific needs by using ARDL's laboratory-size equipment for calendering. Produce valuable insight and testing opportunities prior to expanding your product to commercialization.

ARDL has a 4-roll inverted-L laboratory calender capable of skim coating fabric or calendering rubber and plastic sheets from 0.020" to 0.500" thick and up to 10 inches in width. The calender is oil heated and can obtain temperatures up to 204°C (400°F).

ARDL’s laboratory calender can help you to start up a new product line or to improve an existing one.  We can also help you evaluate adhesion, rubber-to-fabric, rubber-to-metal, and rubber-to-rubber bonding.
