Scientific publication on Coating Techniques

We are thrilled to promote the latest publication entitled “A Comparative Study on the Roll-to-Roll Processing of a Silicate–Polyvinyl Alcohol Composite Barrier Lacquer Using Slot-Die and Reverse Gravure Coating Techniques” prepared under FlexFunction2Sustain project.

The study provides a comparison of two coating techniques, reverse gravure and slot-die, using a roll-to-roll coating line. The focus is on the effecting parameters of the oxygen barrier performance of silicate composite barrier lacquers. The main factors investigated included the effect of the solid content, the reverse gravure geometry, and the shim thickness during the slot-die coating process. The permeability coefficients obtained using twelve different parameter sets were compared with each other.
