Coat Weight

Advanced Technologies That Deliver Absolute Measurement of Coat Weight

Coat weight measurement is a key factor that plays an essential role in product quality, process control and cost control. Overlooking this important measurement may render the product unsuitable for the intended application.

NDC is your solutions partner, offering the widest range of web gauging systems specifically designed for coat weight measurement. Our gauging systems can be used in a broad scope of coating applications from abrasives to paper, film and foil converting.

For example, NDC's near infrared (NIR) gauges offer solutions for paper, plastic, metallic and metalized films substrates. Also, NDC provides x-ray and nucleonic gauging solutions depending on the application. NDC’s gauges can measure coatings ranging in thickness from microns to millimeters including complex coating formulations.

NDC's web gauging systems will optimize your coating process and deliver long-term results such as:

  • Provide flat coat weight profiles
  • Optimize coat weight
  • Improve materials usage
  • Boost process efficiency
  • Reduce scrap
