GARDCO AUTOMATIC DRAWDOWN MACHINE ~ DP-8201 DRAW DOWN is available to buy in increments of 1
Gardco Automatic Drawdown Machine DP-8201

The Gardco Automatic Drawdown Machine (DP-8201) was designed to draw down sample coatings with a high degree of reproducibility. Manual drawdowns are often inconsistent due to different operators, which can make comparisons between samples difficult or unreliable. Other factors affecting drawdown coatings are the shear rate and the amount of weight being applied on the applicator. With the Gardco Automatic Drawdown Machine the operator can get consistent, precision coating drawdowns every time.

The Gardco Automatic Drawdown Machine can use all different types of applicators -- Microm applicators, Bird type, Wire wound rods, etc. There is no need for any special applicators. You can adjust the speed of traversing armature from 1" to 12" per second to suit the particular drawdown to be made. With constant shear rate and weight placed on the applicator you are guaranteed repeatable accurate drawdowns that are not user dependent. There are four preset stroke lengths of 6, 9, 12 and 16 inches. The standard working surface is a 12 x 18 inch glass plate.
