Adhesive Coating and Coating Equipment

Black Bros. Co can help you with your adhesive coating application needs. We offer very precise, repeatable and durable adhesive coating applications to fit most processes. Roll Coaters can process any substrate that can be presented to the coating roll in a single plane. Therefore, regardless of the orientation of the substrate i.e.: vertical or horizontal, we can configure a coater to apply the adhesive coating.

Our machines will apply an accurate and consistent adhesive coating of most fluid products to a wide range of substrates. Painting of a panel or plank is easily envisioned, but imagine a fire retardant or insecticide applied to a fabric or a non-glare coating on glass even the tiles on the bottom of the space shuttle are coated with a BBCO roll coater. Fast or slow, narrow or wide, a coater can be designed to fit your specific need for an adhesive coating or other types of coating.
