Leveling Drawdown Plate
Applicator Not Included

In evaluating the properties of coatings, ink, emulsions and other applications, the Laboratory Drawdown Plate provides accurate repeatable results. The 0.5” thick plate glass plate is hard and ultrasmooth with rubber feet to prevent slipping.

A heavy duty clip holds the substrate in place while the coating is applied evenly with any coating rod.

Gardco Drawdown Plate with Armature

Gardco Drawdown Machine

The Drawdown Plate with armature is a precision instrument designed to make consistent, repeatable drawdown samples. Human differences in rod pressure and direction of stroke that cause inconsistent samples are eliminated.
