I have an EPDM coating dissolved into solvent that I am trying to saturate into paper. So far, I have tried dip, wringer style and hydrostatic pressure but the coating only adheres to the top edge of the paper, and does not go directly into the centre so that I get a thorough saturation of it. Does anyone have anysuggestions as to what I need to check or look at? The paper is 132 pound basis weight kraft paper. the molecular weight of the EPDM base polymer is 135,000 g/mol. I have tried wetting agents as well.Thank you.
