Carestream Tollcoating, a division of Rochester-based Carestream Health Inc., has formed an alliance with Oregon-based Polaris Battery Labs LLC, a prototyping and process development resource for lithium ion battery products.
Carestream Tollcoating, also located in Oregon, provides precision contract manufacturing coating services.
The companies said in a release the alliance will help customers accelerate the launch of new battery materials and technologies.
Working together, Polaris and Carestream Tollcoating will help customers overcome common roadblocks to commercializing their inventions, including generating samples for evaluation, reducing time to market and minimizing capital and operational risks, the companies said.
“Carestream Tollcoating utilizes precision coating methods and high-speed, wide web assets and technologies developed for other industries to bring high yield and cost advantages to the battery and capacitor industry,” said Rick Daniels, Carestream Tollcoating’s general manager, in a statement. “We are proud to collaborate with Polaris in getting customers’ products to market quickly.”
