Create thin films of paint, lacquers and other materials. Add an optional vacuum pump to hold your test charts, non-elastic foils and other flat substrates firmly in place. Small sized specimens can be held in place by covering any remaining vacuum holes.
Heat is evenly distributed so the entire vacuum plate has the exact same temperature. Temperature can be adjusted from ambient till 125°C. The digital controller allows users to accurately set the temperature to one decimal place.
The Heated Perforated Vacuum Table is compatible with all common type applicators such as Baker and Bird.
- Test coatings to evaluate opacity, hiding power and other appearance parameters.
- Test adhesives like glues to evaluate bonding strength at different temperatures.
- Apply slurry pastes for research of thin film technologies in battery development.
- Prepare test charts for scrub -, abrasion- and washability tests.
