Characteristics

Slot-die coating is a sophisticated and highly precise technique used to apply uniform thin films to a variety of substrates. At the heart of this technology is the slot-die head, a critical component that determines the flow and deposition of the coating material. Slot-die heads are versatile tools used across numerous industries, from electronics to pharmaceuticals, due to their ability to produce consistent and high-quality coatings.

Precision and Control

Uniform Coatings: Slot-die heads are designed to deliver coatings with exceptional uniformity and thickness control. This precision is vital for applications that require consistent layer properties.

Adjustable Parameters: Operators can fine-tune coating thickness and uniformity by adjusting the flow rate of the coating material, the speed of the substrate, and the gap between the slot-die head and the substrate.

Versatility
Wide Range of Coating Materials: Slot-die heads can handle a diverse array of materials, including polymers, organic semiconductors, nanoparticle suspensions, and conductive inks. This versatility makes them suitable for various industrial applications.

Substrate Compatibility: They can be used to coat different types of substrates such as glass, metal foils, plastics, and flexible films, enhancing their applicability across multiple sectors.
