Multivessel dipcoater used for multiple dipping of a single substrate in different solutions

Dip coating is a process to deposit thin films from solution. It is a multi-stage process where the substrate is initially immersed in the solution of the coating material at a constant speed. The substrate then remains immersed for a set period of time before being withdrawn at a constant speed. A large variety of films can be produced by using either self-assembly, sol-gel chemistry or layer-by-layer assembly. The properties of the film can be controlled by varying a number of parameters: initial substrate functionality, submersion time, withdrawal speed, number of dipping cycles, solution concentration and temperature.
