Coupling between hydrodynamic and evaporation in polymer solution or colloidal dispersion
Coating processes based on the application and drying of a dilute solution or dispersion are used in many
industrial applications to get coatings with specific properties. However many questions are open about
the understanding of the involved mechanisms. Indeed hydrodynamic flow, mass transfer and change in
physico-chemical properties may occur simultaneously, as in the problem studied in the EVAPEC project.
We consider a dip-coating-like process with slow pulling velocity so that evaporation at the meniscus scale
is significant (cf. figure). Two model systems are used: (i) a polymer solution with a strong increase of the
viscosity when the solvent concentration decreases, and a rapid decrease of the activity (and thus of the
evaporation rate) at the end of the meniscus, (ii) a colloidal dispersion that, unlike polymer solution, may
become a dense porous film saturated with water, and that evaporates on a length much larger than the
meniscus size. We have characterized different regimes depending on the process parameters and drawn
conclusions on the coupling between the flow and the final state of the dry film.
