Universal Coater


Product Overview

UC-200 Coating head shown with standard unwind stand. The reservoir and side dams have been removed to allow a clear view of the material entering the coating nip. An optional brake unwind for 3” cores is also available.

UC-200 with optional Heated Control Box. The heating elements can be inserted from either side of the coating head, allowing easier use and set up based on your laboratory layout. The Heated Control Box is available in either 110V or 220V versions and can display in either Fahrenheit or Celsius.

This Knive-Over-Roll (KOR) coating device can be used for the quick and easy application of emulsion and solvent coatings based adhesives. Add the optional Heated Control Box to coat hot melt adhesives. UC-200 Universal 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.
