Spray Transfer Efficiency Webinar

Virtual Webinar
Thursday, June 08, 2023 to Thursday, June 08, 2023

Sponsored by: Spraying Systems Co.

11AM - 12PM

Fast moving webs create big problems when it comes to applying coatings. The air boundary layer created from the high-speed web makes spraying coatings in small amounts exceedingly difficult. This generally means that you will have a low transfer efficiency when spraying. Transfer efficiency can be defined as the total amount of product applied versus the total amount sprayed out of the nozzle. In industry you will find many ways that have been used to try to combat the air boundary layer created from high-speed webs. You might ask yourself, though, which is the most effective? In this webinar, we explore several different methods for trying to break through the air boundary layer, and see which method yields the best results for transfer efficiency.
