How Much Will You Save?  Let’s find out.

Atlas Tube offers complimentary EPOX Z KOTE Powder Primed Tube samples and a cost saving analysis report for all manufacturing trials. We provide an independent industrial engineer to examine your manufacturing process and its associated costs. To determine your potential EPOX Z KOTE tube savings, the industrial engineer records and analyzes the incremental differences in processing time and consumable materials. A confidential report is submitted to you upon conclusion of the trial.
