Wire Bar Coaters

Wire Bar Coaters

The wire and its rod from the wire-wound rods are made of stainless steel,which are corrosion-resistance. A coating(Paint or Ink)is being drawdown by a known thickness wire-rod applicator over a substrate(eg. Black/White Test Chart, Glass or Wood Panel, etc.)onto our Drawdown Board. The motion of the drawdown is done by gripping the 2 edges of the applicator or by using the Holder 

These applicators provide an economical way to assure the uniformity of thickness of very thin films.
