The blade of this applicator measures only 0.5 x 0.5 x 2.5" (13 x 13 x 64mm). A 1.5" (38mm)wide precision ground gate is centered on each of the four edges. This restricted passage channels the flow of the dyne fluid through the gate while limiting the wet film thickness applied to a maximum of only one half of one mil (0.0005", or 12.5 microns).
This tool can produce high quality drawdowns in a confined area, making direct benchtop testing a reality. All four gates are precision ground to the same clearance to facilitate quicker test-to-test turnaround, and to provide the longest service life. Packed in a cushioned protective container.
