In this entry, we will be looking at spin coating – specifically the real benefits of spin coating, and why it has become so ubiquitous across industrial applications.

Ubiquitous Use

Currently, spin coating is one of the most common practices across the industrial coating industry. From semiconductors to insulators, even down to nanomaterials, this method of coating is used.

Why Spin Coating Is Common

The reason this has become such a common form of coating such a wide variety of materials is the simplicity and ease of use that it offers. High-speed spinning meaning a much quicker drying time, further enhanced by the ability for higher air flow. It also offers a uniformity, as well as speed, which supplies a consistency in quality across applications.
Having this kind of reliable speed and quality is vital in many industrial situations, and this method of coating is one of the best ways to achieve both.

Are There Disadvantages?

Depending on the kind of project you are undertaking, there could potentially be disadvantages to using this method. For some specific nano-technologies, fast drying times can actually be a con, rather than a pro, leading to lower performance.

It is also typically a batch method, that only allows one substrate type at a time. However, for high production of a significant quantity of parts in bulk, it can be ideal. The important thing is to carefully assess your needs before you commit to a particular process.
