Automatic Film Applicators

The TQC Motorised Automatic film applicator or drawdown machine provides a reliable basis to apply coating films and slurries to test charts, panels or foils in a uniform and reproducible way in order to eliminate variations caused by human factors. Variations in speed, pressure and direction of draw down cause irregularities. Other factors that may influence the result are the shear rate and the weight of the applicator. With the TQC Automatic film applicator these variable factors are being stabilised. Over the complete surface the film thickness is even.

To prepare samples for testing rheological properties, abrasion resistance, hiding power and gloss the TQC Motorised Automatic film applicator is a must have. Motorised Film Applicators are also used in the adhesives industry.
