  • Publication number: 20210291223
    Abstract: Provided is a method of applying an electron beam curable aqueous coating material, including coating a surface of a material to be coated with the electron beam curable aqueous coating material to form a wet coating film; drying the wet coating film until a time integration value of a reciprocal of an average value of viscosities of a region from a surface of the wet coating film to a depth of one half a film thickness of the wet coating film is in a range of 0.30 (Pa·s)?1·min to 0.90 (Pa·s)?1·min, which is acquired by an electric field pick-up method, and a solid content concentration of the wet coating film is 90% by mass or greater; and curing the obtained dry coating film by irradiation with an electron beam after the wet coating film is dried.

  • Publication number: 20210279510
    Abstract: The coating quality prediction device includes: a learned model that has learned a relationship between characteristics of a paint, conditions at a time of applying the paint, and a smoothness of a surface of a coating film obtained by applying the paint under the conditions; and a calculation unit that uses the learned model to calculate the smoothness of the surface of the coating film from the characteristics of the paint and the conditions at the time of applying the paint.

  • Publication number: 20210268541
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a method for producing a coated material by using a composition that can be spray-coated, and that does not run downward after coating (i.e., rheology controllable). The method for producing a coated material includes step (1) of applying an electron beam-curable composition containing an ethylenically unsaturated group-containing compound to a substrate to form a coating film that has a surface viscosity of 1 Pa·s to 300 Pa·s as measured based on an electric-field pickup method, step (2) of drying the coating film obtained in step (1) to form a dry coating film when the electron beam-curable composition contains a volatile component, and step (3) of irradiating the substrate that has the coating film obtained in step (1) or the dry coating film obtained in step (2) with electron beams in an inert gas atmosphere to form a cured coating film.
