The calender or calender is a machine that is based on a series of pressure rollers that are used to form or a smooth sheet of material. The main application of calenders is in the final paper manufacturing process.

Calendering can also be applied to materials other than paper, where a smooth, flat surface is desirable, such as cotton, linens, silks, and various man-made fabrics and polymers, such as polymer-like vinyl (PVC) sheets.


Essential process for obtaining uniform films in terms of physical-chemical composition, dimensional stability, appearance, flatness; with the clear purpose of delivering products to customers that allow efficiencies in quality and productivity in their conversion processes.

These include printing by various systems such as flexography, lithography, serigraphy, digital; thermal or adhesive lamination to other substrates; thermoforming, die cutting, roll cutting, coating, heat sealing and high frequency among the most common.


Products made up of several layers such as fabrics, films, meshes, etc., destined for areas such as construction, transportation and decoration, are made through this process.


Oriented to the production of pressure-sensitive self-adhesives with plastic films as the useful face. This process allows obtaining finished coils up to 1.50m wide, uniform in appearance, flatness and appropriate physical and chemical characteristics for optimal performance in later stages of printing, adhesion, cutting and die-cutting.


The cutting process is carried out in sheets and rolls, in order to achieve the efficiency, productivity and quality goals of our clients, Filmtex has a conversion section whose objective is to transform large-size reels into rolls and sheets in the measures and presentations required by customers.
