Curtain coating is a process that creates an uninterrupted curtain of fluid that falls onto a substrate. The substrate is transported on a conveyor belt at a regulated speed through the curtain to ensure an even coat of the die. The curtain is created by using a slit at the base of the holding tank, allowing the liquid to fall upon the substrate. Most manufactures will also include a catch pan to retrieve and reuse the excess fluid.

Famous quotes containing the words coating and/or curtain:
“The world is eaten up by boredom.... You cant see it all at once. It is like dust. You go about and never notice, you breathe it in, you eat and drink it. It is sifted so fine, it doesnt even grit on your teeth. But stand still for an instant and there it is, coating your face and hands. To shake off this drizzle of ashes you must be for ever on the go. And so people are always on the go.”
—Georges Bernanos (18881948)
“We owe to genius always the same debt, of lifting the curtain from the common, and showing us that divinities are sitting disguised in the seeming gang of gypsies and peddlars.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
