For the quick and easy application of emulsion and solvent coatings, the Laboratory Drawdown Coater creates consistently coated samples from roll stock. The heart of this coater is its two precision ground, 303 stainless steel rolls, which provide a precise knife-over-roll coating method. The Laboratory Drawdown Coater simplifies producing an accurate coating on longer webs for product development or QC applications. Paired with our Benchtop Laboratory Laminator, this coater is the starting point for creating high quality label samples.
