A highly precise coating applicator is required to paint application onto a drawdown chart to achieve a consistent dry paint film. Coating applicators can be a wire wound bar or a bar applicator.
A wide range of bar applicators are offered by BYK. While choosing a bar applicator it is important to consider film width and gap clearance. It is important to consider the wire diameter, wet film thickness and film width for wire wound rod applicators.
In North America, wire wound bars are described as mayer rods and the single clearance bar applicators are described as a bird bar. There are several multi-clearance coating applicators that can be used for different types of paint applications.
The key features of bar film applicators are:
The bar applicators are designed for easy cleaning and maintenance
The 4-sided applicator is a versatile bar applicator having multiple gap clearances.
The applicator frame is suitable for low viscosity coatings
Made of high quality stainless steel for long life
Comes with a calibration certificate to maintain consistency
Packaged in reusable storage box to prevent damage
