Application Data

1. Soak a cotton pad with Topaz Indicator solution. 2. Wipe gently across the web on both the coated and non-coated areas of the sheet. The streak should be bluish and consistent in the applied area, showing a contrast with the non-coated area. 3. Color uniformity indicates the application uniformity level.
