  • Advantages over brushout application tests are speed, reproducibility, and a regular surface pattern.
  • The leveling of films applied in this manner correlates well with brushout leveling, thereby providing a reliable means for evaluating this property
  • Has alternating clearances of 300 and 100 µm (12 and 4 mils), to apply alternate stripes of 150 and 50 µm (6 and 2 mils) thickness. Thus the mean wet film thickness of the test drawdown will be about 100 µm (4 mils), corresponding to a spreading rate of 10 m2/L (400 ft2/gal).
