incl. case and Manufacturer's Test Certificate M

This filmograph is supplied with the blade at a fixed gap height, selected from a range between 15 and 2000 µm.
Model 288 with 2 working edges so that in this way several theoretical film thicknesses can be applied with a single instrument.
Model 288 is corrosion resisting.
Reference Class: All versions of Model 288 are supplied with a Manufacturer’s Certificate M in accordance with DIN 55350-18 that includes among others the following information:288
  • Gap heights (comparison of setting/actual values),
  • evenness and roughness of the working edge, product
  • identification, test equipments used with calibration status,
  • date, name of inspector.
For checking the film applicators maximum deviations of 5 µm/10 %/10 µm are fixed for gap heights in the measuring range below 50 µm/50 - 100 µm/over 100 µm.
The evenness/roughness should not exceed 3 µm/0.5µm (Ra).

Spiral Film Applicator, Model 358
Cards, plastic foils, leather, textiles and other flexible substrates frequently have uneven surfaces or bulging shapes.
The use of a scraper type applicator can lead to uneven film thick-nesses.
The solution to this problem is the spiral applicator.
When the applicator is drawn across the substrate, the substrate is pressed down and held flat.
The grooves formed between the windings of the applicator have the effect of producing a wet film of defined thickness (Fig. 5).
The theoretical film thick-ness is controlled by the gaps between the windings of the spiral.
The roller with the spiral is held in a bracket with handle (Fig. 4).
The instrument is corrosion resisting.
Complete set consisting of holding bracket and 4 spiral rollers for film thicknesses to be specified with order
(available sizes 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, 100, 120, 150 and 200 µm), complete with case.

Film Applicator MULTICATOR 411
A frequent requirement is to produce a specimen panel with an accurately defined dry film thickness.
For the reasons gone into earlier it is necessary to conduct trials to find the corresponding theoretical wet film thickness.
It is of course possible to do this by using a series of applicator blades with different gap heights.
A simpler and more economical way is, however, to employ an applicator with adjustable gap height.
The infinitely adjustable film applicator Model 411 can be used to apply wet films with a theoretical film thickness of between 1 and 1000 µm.
The storage space is limited by spring strips and the desired gap height is set on a micrometer screw  
The instrument is corrosion resisting.

Gap height infinitely adjustable from 1 to 1000 µm, supplied in protective case.

Staggered-Gap Film Applicator acc. to Krause, Model 421/I  & 421/II          

Purpose and Application
With Model 421 up to 10 parallel film strips of different thickness can be produced in a single application. This film applicator is therefore particularly suitable for investigations into properties that are dependent on film thickness such as
• Hiding Power
• Adhesion
• Colour strength
• Effect formation
• Hardening characteristics
• Lacquer interference     

When using the Model 421 in conjunction with the COASTER 509/MC-III it is possible to investigate hardening properties as a function of film thickness, immediately after application.
Furthermore, the Staggered-Gap Film Applicator 421 provides simple means for investigating the relationship between application parameters (height of gap, drawing speed) and the resulting film (wet and dry film thickness).
Ordering Information Model 421/I
With four  drawing edges each for applying 10  films 20 mm  wide,  2  mm  space  between them and 10 to 500 µm high.
Dimensions (W x H x D) 254 x 38 x 56 mm.
