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.Rekrut Materials Engineers
I need someone who can take the idea to prototyping, testing and repeat. If you cant finish please dont apply. We will build a personal manual momo filling and folding machine. To sit on kitchen counters.
Need support to build a corrosion model for long-term degradation of subsea pipelines in seawater for different parameters (temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, etc) Need capability/ experience in the area of MATLAB, Physics, Electrochemistry. Happy to discuss detailed scope.
We need a chemical engineer to do testing for a product. They would need to have access to a small lab. I would like a concentrate designed to rid the strong odour from clothes after sport and strong odour hobbies, we have ideas but need some help for shelf life and complient with Australian standards.
