Scale up of a Coating Process

Kevin Lifsey

Presented by E. Lawrence Gogolin, Gogolin & Associates

When you scale up a process for coating, from the lab bench to manufacturing, there are many potential pitfalls. The problems can come from many sources. Among them are: the coating fluids and variability in the batches of their raw materials, the variations in the manufacturers lots of chosen substrate and the interactions of the fluid and substrate in subsequent coating application. We will discuss how all these components interact when moving from a static draw down
application and batch oven drying to a dynamic applicator system, dryer, and web handling operation.
