FILM APPLICATORS & COATERS
There are a number of different types of film applicators ranging from manual to automatic and come in a variety of styles. The device is used to evenly spread a substance and are used for laying down wet films of material in predetermined thicknesses.
Costers are used to protect a substrate or for decorative purposes and if well applied it can protect a substrate for up to 25 years. The coating is applied at a controlled thickness, and a number of different processes are used to achieve this control. These range from a simple brush for painting a door, to some very expensive machinery applying coatings in the electronics industry.See more.
Film Applicators are made from high grade stainless steel and is a device used to evenly spread a substance like paint, cosmetics or inks over a substrate like a drawdown card. The stainless steel material used to make the film applicators is corrosion resistant and manufacturing with high tolerances to give you a consistent repeatable result. Each applicator will deliver a “wet film thickness”, which can vary from a 50-90% gap.
We stock various different types of film applicators, some can be used manually and others automatically.
With using a manual film applicator, you will inevitably experience small variations in speed and pressure which can affect the quality of abrasion resistance, adhesion and gloss. Automatic film applicators guarantee consistency throughout the process giving you repeatable quality results.
An automatic film applicator will quarantee a more consitent speed and pressure, which will provide you with high quality, repeatable results every time. Automatic film applicators tend to vary in their construction. The majority of modern applicators all for a variety of application bars to be mounted with ease. The preassure and speed of the bar can be easliy adjusted to allow for a more customised film thickness.
