The K Hand Coater also enables very reliable colour comparisons between two or more products, since the films can be applied simultaneously side by side. The products remain clearly separated and do not flow into each other. In many sectors, there is a need for a simple way to apply coatings. In the case of printing inks, lacquers, adhesives, etc., the physical characteristics (such as colour tone, gloss, opacity and elasticity) can be assessed by applying a defined coating thickness to different substrates. In these cases, the K Hand Coater is a suitable device that can be used both within the R&D laboratory and in production for checking the manufacturing quality.
