HENDERSONVILLE, TN | ITW Dynatec has introduced CrossCoat, a non-contact, metered slot applicator that produces a precise flow of adhesive for coating applications that require streak-free results. A continuous film is formed from the applicator to the substrate. The surface attraction of the adhesive enables it to be stretched as it is applied to the substrate, producing highly accurate and repeatable results. Cross-web accuracies to +/- 3% reportedly can be achieved with a minimum application coat weight of 1 gsm at web speeds to 1,000 mpm or more.
Applicator is called ideal for heat sensitive materials such as thin PP and PE films, and unit is said to provide consistent coating on irregular surfaces. Coat weight and coverage width can be changed automatically or manually.
