Facilities Available for Use - High Speed Pilot Coater

The coating capabilities of the PDC have been recently expanded with our new access to a high-speed, web coater. Coating is a key method of adding value and functionality to webs of paper, foil and specialized composite materials. This industrial-quality unit is able to directly coat paper made on the pilot paper machine using a wide range of coating application methods.

Some of the features of the coater include:The high-speed coater at Sappi
