Heated Perforated Vacuum Bed

For Thin Film Applicator - AB3430, AB3435

Heated perforated vacuum table to be used to create smooth and consistent thin films of paint, lacquers and other materials on sample specimen such as opacity test charts, sample panels, foils or other flat substrates.

The vacuum table is made of hard aluminium and anodized in hardcoat flat black to provide a durable and inert surface with an absolute flatness. The surface of the vacuum table is perforated with a grid of small holes which hold the test specimen in position for proper drawdown when attached to a vacuum pump or line (not included).

Features

top
The vacuum table has a built-in heating mat which allows the temperature of the table to be elevated up to +100°C above ambient temperature. The powerful heating device guarantees an even distribution of the temperature over the entire vacuum plate. Temperature is set and controlled through a digital temperature controller.

Unlike with the automatic film applicator the films are to be applied manually using a variety of applicators such as baker-applicators, bar-coaters and wire wound rods, Bird-applicator, 8 Path applicators, 2 Path applicators, Casting knife and Microm adjustable film applicators.
  • Durable and inert surface with an absolute flatness to be used with charts, foils, panels and other flat surfaces
  • Even temperature distribution
  • Digital temperature control
  • Vacuum keeps the test specimen in position

Applications

top
  • Apply even and consistent films of paint and coatings on test charts to evaluate opacity, hiding power, penetration resistance, spreading rate
  • Produce consistent and reproducible test charts for color comparison, gloss and reflectance testing and other appearance parameters.
  • Apply adhesives, glue and hot melt on test specimen to evaluate bonding strength at different thicknesses and different temperatures.
  • Apply slurries on metal foils for research after new thin film technologies in the battery production industry
  • Produce reproducible test charts and specimen for scrub, abrasion and washability tests.

 

Use

top
The TQC Heated film bed controller is operated by two buttons. The power switch on the top and the temperature set knob on the front. To set the temperature first turn the machine on and then set the temperature. The test bed will warm up to the set temperature.

 

Special Care

top
  • Though robust in design, this instrument is precision-machined. Never drop it or knock it over
  • Always clean the instrument after use.
  • Clean the instrument using a soft dry cloth. Never clean the instrument by any mechanical means such as a wire brush or abrasive paper. This may cause, just like the use of aggressive cleaning agents, permanent damage.
  • Do not use compressed air to clean the instrument.
