K Hand Coater

ˑ An apparatus used to uniformly put on liquid such as ink and paint.
ˑ Stainless steel wire is wound around a stainless steel bar.
ˑ The amount of liquid is adjusted by grooves of wire, so that a stable film thickness can be obtained.
ˑ The film thickness varies depending on the gauge number (diameter) of the wire.
ˑ This product can be held with both hands and is easy to use for coating.
ˑ Uniform coating with a constant coating thickness is possible with a small amount of ink.
ˑ Using this product with a dedicated printing table allows a sample to be created with high reproducibility.
ˑ With this bar, a coating of 4 to 500 um (wet film thickness) can be applied.
