VARELA LOPEZ, F.  y  ROSEN, M.. Rheological effects in roll coating of paints. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2002, vol.32, n.3, pp. 247-252. ISSN 0327-0793.

the aim of this work is the study of the problems that arise during roll coating application of paints on steel sheets. We put in evidence the particular effects due to the non-Newtonian properties of these fluids. At speeds above a certain critical value, the flow of paint through the applicator suffers a hydrodynamical instability called ribbing, which generates a patterned interface on the film applied. Threshold of instability as well as waveform of the pattern is function of rheological properties of paints as well as surface tension. Thixotropy of paints as well as shear-thinning behaviour has been determined for several industrial paints used in the steel industry, and correlated with levelling performance after application.

Palabras clave : coating; paint; rheology; ribbing.
