In film coating application, a thin film of coating color is applied to the surface of an applicator roll. The film is transferred to both sides of the paper sheet in a nip formed between two transfer rolls. The film application method provides excellent runnability. Simultaneous application on both sides of the sheet also saves space, which provides a competitive advantage in the case of high-capacity investments.
