Driving Precision
Through In-House Testing

In-house testingTLP is positioned to solve your label and adhesive challenges. It starts with an innovative engineering mindset, and is backed by rigorous in-house design and testing capabilities.

The capabilities of the TLP Quality & Engineering Lab integrate throughout the product development process, supporting ISO and TS certifications.

Comprehensive Methods of Ensuring Your Satisfaction

Our compliance to the exacting demands of the automotive industry brings additional benefits to all TLP customers.

  • Design and process reviews. It’s more than a final check before a product goes out the door. It’s an integral part of the process from the moment you contact us through its use in your specific application.
  • Thorough documentation. We complete, when requested, Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Article of Inspection, and material certification documentation. We also can prepare letters for RoHS, WEEE and more.
  • Exacting measurements. A digital optical comparator helps ensure consistency by allowing high-resolution snapshots of various labels for comparison using precise geometry.
  • Color consistency. To support the highest quality standards, a spectrophotometer enables sharp analysis of colors, fine text, shadows, highlight details and opacity of the labels.
  • Durability tests. TLP ensures labels and adhesives can endure your most hostile environments through the Taber Abraser abrasion resistance testing, strain measurement for shear, tensile and peel strength of adhesive layers between rigid surfaces, accelerated aging, science scope magnification, and other testing methods.
  • Engineering analyses. TLP engineers provide First Article Inspection (FAI) of part geometry, Initial Sample Inspection Report (ISIR, a pre-prototype specification analysis) and other proven quality assurance services.  Analyses can be turned into a Certificate Of Analyses if needed.
