Suppliers shall request RFQ prior to sending package to CCL. RFQ shall list all applicable specifications, including coating / powder classes and revisions, provide prior ACCEPTED RR date and report number. If deviation(s) are sought in RR certification, provide a copy of deviation(s) with applicable section(s), note(s) highlighted for accurate pricing, faster review and quicker turnaround. These steps will ensure that the coating is ready to be processed on Day 1 it arrives at CCL’s door. Suppliers are encouraged to limit no more than five coatings per RFQ. 

Please note these are simply guidelines. For specific questions, please contact CCL at ccl@metcut.com
