Because actual transfer rates are affected by coating rheology, substrate and other variables, this chart is only intended to provide a good starting point for trials. Actual transfer rates can also vary between rod types since the shape of the profile can have a significant effect on coating flow. Also note that the dry coat weight calculations assume a coating density of 1.0 g/cm3.
