Coating Viscosity Control Best Practices

Coating Viscosity Control Best Practices

Coating viscosity control is a significant challenge for all coating operations. While many factors impact the film's ultimate characteristics, the viscosity of the coating material is of central importance in achieving consistency. The viscosity of a coating relates directly to the concentration of coating solids in the fluid, which is the basis for the thickness and uniformity of the film....
