This educational class this to cover design criteria for hot melt coating. The design criteria will investigate different process methods such as roll coating versus slot die coating, monitoring of process parameters, cost effects of parameters desired versus required. We will also investigate setting up a spec sheet for sending out proposals for a coating line. What should be included and resulting in a request for quote packet. If time we will discuss evaluating different bids. Purpose: proper prior planning will result in a greater chance of success and avoid the common pitfalls and mistakes made in setting up a coating line.
