Coating Configurations

Part of the Mathematics in Industry book series (MATHINDUSTRY, volume 3)


In Chapter 10 we considered curtain coating on a moving substrate. There are actually several different technologies for coating. In this chapter we describe coating by extrusion die; this is one of the most commonly used methods for coating photographic emulsion. The substrate, often referred to as a web, is the polymeric film base.
