Drying of Latex Films
- 1.8k Downloads
To reduce transport costs for products, such as washing powder, which— although used and manufactured in the wet state—are shipped in a dry form.
To maintain suitable handling properties. For example, sand will flow easily when dry yet will be difficult to handle if wet.
To stop corrosion and the growth of microorganisms.
