A coating can be applied to a variety of different materials, usually involving an adhesive layer being applied to a finished product. An example of this is plastic drinks bottles; the coating in this case is the label which has one side coated in adhesive, and the other side printed with the product imagery (decorative coatings). When applying a coating a requirement is that the coating is of equal thickness all round, and in cases where the coating doesn’t cover the whole of the object, accuracy in its application. The coating itself may be applied in any state, be it liquid, solid or gas.
Material coating is a skill required in a multitude of industries, and may be applied by hand or by use of machinery. By hand, the use of a correct brush can create an even layer, while industrial methods may proffer the ‘web’ method, or ‘roll to roll’ method. In this case the substrates begin, and end, in a roll. Material coating has its uses in fabric production, cookware, photography, waterproofing and insulation among many others. From non-stick pans to iron-on fabric interfacing, the uses of material coatings are diverse.
Material coatings can add as USP to a product, and ensure its longevity. This allows a brand to build up a good reputation, increase number of repeat customers, and also charge more for their products.Najem Materials Engineers
I need a materials engineer to help with an idea for a beer pong table. I need the table to be full size (4'x8'), able to break down in to 4 pieces (preferably more), must be strong, sturdy, have good bounce and most importantly, be very light weight. (Cheap metal will not work, bounce is not good). Really just need help with finding the right material. Budget for that task is around $200
The scope was to read the project report done by students and input those data as detailed as possible into excel. Data can be in numbers, tables, graphs and charts. Basic knowledge of material science or biomedical engineering is recommended so as to have a better understanding of the reports.
