Flow-coating

pouring lacquer over the object to be coated or, as may apply, submerging it in lacquer and capturing the excess lacquer that flows off. As no large dipping basins need to be filled here, less lacquer is required than with dipping. Flow-coating has particular benefits with parts with complicated shapes and that are difficult to access. Flow-coating is normally undertaken with automatic systems where the viscosity, temperature and speed of movement are matched to each other (but manual operation is also possible). These are divided into: Transit flow-coating and dip flow-coating
