Slot coating die
Publish on 5/18/2010 01:05:06 PMNew slot die for coating continuous-web substrates provides consistent, streak-free application of pressure s ensitive adhesives ( PSAs ) , achieving higher line speeds and greater accuracy than conventional roll coating, with less environmental impact. EDI developed the die specifically for PSAs, a hot melt adhesive subgroup. While roll coating speeds for hot melt application usually do not exceed 1200 feet/min. (365 metres/min.), the new die developed by EDI accommodates line speeds up to 2,000 feet/ min.
