The outstanding feature of this model is the presence of an Infra-Red dryer in it; inside the unit there is an infrared heater, which offers a maximum temperature of 200°C from ambient; after each dip, the Infrared heater helps in drying the substrate; it provides uniform heating to the substrate; the temperature is swiftly attained so that the time taken for the dipping process is greatly reduced; the coating thickness can be easily controlled by adjusting the withdrawal rate and the viscosity of the coating solution
  • dip coating unit with infrared dryer has both manual as well as PC mode.
