PrimeCoat coating technology

ANDRITZ PrimeCoat systems are used for coating paper and board. Different techniques can be chosen depending on coatings required, coat weights applied, and operating speeds desired.

PrimeCoat versions (Jet, Blade and BarFlex) have different blade or bar metering systems. The bar metering system can be used for pre-coating paper and board, top coating, and the treatment of specialty papers (thermal papers, inkjet papers, etc). The blade metering system is ideal when an extremely smooth finish is required.
