Brush Applicators

Ideal for applying material to irregular or hard-to-reach surfaces, our high-quality brush applicators can be cut and shaped to your specifications. Composed of various brush materials, these applicators can be used to coat metal, plastic and wood surfaces with ease. Your Designetics representative can recommend the best type of brush applicator for your process.

Channel applicators

A channel applicator is the preferred choice for evenly coating the interior surfaces of metal, plastic and rubber channels. We provide several channel applicators to fit various shape, size and material requirements. We can even craft a custom applicator to meet your specialized requirements. Your Designetics representative can recommend the best type of channel applicator for your process.

Flat applicators

For single-surface applications, the flat applicator dispenses fluid with crisp demarcation and precise repeatability. Flat applicators may be ordered with or without an edge guide to meet a broad range of coating widths and fluid viscosities, while custom applicators are available for specific priming applications. Your Designetics representative can recommend the best flat applicator for your process.

Round applicators

Ideal for single-surface application when no orientation is necessary, the round applicator dispenses a broad range of fluid viscosities with sharp demarcation and precise repeatability. Your Designetics representative can recommend the best round applicator for your process.

Wraparound applicators

For multi-surface applications, the wraparound applicator provides crisp demarcation and precise repeatability. Ideal for coating one or two sides and an edge with a single pass, our standard wraparound applicators dispense a broad range of fluid viscosities. Special wraparound applicators are available to meet specific coating widths. Your Designetics representative can recommend the best wraparound applicator for your process.
