Classroom course not currently scheduled.
This course is aimed at developing skills to understand and improve many aspects of coating solution preparation and delivery to the coating line. Students will be shown the significant parameters for efficient mixing and how they can be used to estimate mixing time. Also, this course will demonstrate that the properties of the coating solution have a critical effect on the uniform and reproducible application of a coating. We will discuss in a practical way how these solution properties also affect physical defects, coater operability, drying, and surface features of the coated product. Manufacturing the best coating solution possible is critical, since the web coater cannot correct defects resident in the original solution. Scores of classroom attendees have benefited from this course.
The course is given by Dr. Kenneth McCarthy has over 35 years of experience, primarily related to coating. His areas of expertise include coating fluid mix preparation and delivery, coating operations, clean room operations, coating applicator design, environmental management, and new product development.
