Coatings are a covering that is applied to the surface of an object, usually referred to as the substrate. The purpose of applying the coating may be decorative, functional, informative or all of these factors. The coating itself may be an all-over coating, completely covering the substrate, or it may only cover parts of the substrate. An example of all of these types more

Coatings are a covering that is applied to the surface of an object, usually referred to as the substrate. The purpose of applying the coating may be decorative, functional, informative or all of these factors. The coating itself may be an all-over coating, completely covering the substrate, or it may only cover parts of the substrate. An example of all of these types of coating is a product label on many drinks bottles - one side has an all over functional coating - the adhesive, and the other side has one or more decorative coatings in an appropriate pattern - the printing, to form words and images.

Curtain Coating - Curtain coating methods allow the flow of liquid to be continuous and ensure an even coating in a cross web direction. Curtain, slot and slide are all coating methods. The uncoated substrate is transported on a conveyor belt at a controlled speed. The liquid is deposited onto the substrate via a gap between two conveyors. Using pre-metered coatings you can produce thinner coats down to nanometers, produce more even layers, lower your costs of dyes and increase the speed of production. Other coatings include powder, koting, conformal, nano, hydrophobic, glass, spray, spin, non stick, vacuum, phosphate, protective, xyaln and more. Browse through our suppliers to find a pre-metered coating method for you.

Multilayer Coating - Multilayer Coating refers to to build up of coating processes on an item within the packaging and printing industries. There are many types of coatings, including adhesives, paper, plastic, protective coatings, optical coatings and a great many more. Multilayer coating occurs when two or more of these coatings are combined to add additional layers to the printing and packaging processes, as per the requirements of the customer.

Slot coating - Slot coating can be deposited and dispensed uniformly at a controlled rate onto steel, glass and plastic substrates. Maintaining fluid temperatures produces even and defined coating widths. Advantages of this method include production speeds, waste management control, defect-free coatings, coat weight management and cross-web control. Flat panel displays, photovoltaic panels and solid-state lighting use slot coating methods. Browse our list suppliers for products and details on slot coating techniques and machines.
