For Dynamic water retention and size press pick up

Process conditions in the laboratory testing
makes the value-added in real

The quality of coated roll material is always a combination of substrate and coating properties as well as their interaction.

ACA Flow is a unique analyzer that combines all these key variables to offer you a simple and fast method for coating development and trouble shooting.

Fast and easy measurement

Substrate (base paper, nonwoven, absorbing film) is weighted, and then the sample is placed together with a filter on the lid of the device. The lid is closed. In order to simulate the process conditions, pressure (1 – 2bar) and measurement time (usually 3 – 6 s) can be selected on the touch screen.

After the controlled coating flow the substrate is measured again and g/m2 is calculated as a flow rate into the base.

Benefits of ACA Flow

  1. Possibility to measure characteristics of coating dispersions and water based solutions on flow properties
  2. Possibility to measure the influence of different base substrates on the flow characteristics
  3. Due to the dynamic flow the instrumen has an excellent correlation to real coating processes
  4. Fast and easy measurement
