Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0216049A1] The invention relates to a linkage member (10) for linking articles together during a process for coating the articles. The linkage member (10) has a first and second end (12), each end (12) of which is configured to receive and about end portions of successive articles to be coated and to prevent coating of the end portions. Each linkage member (10) is primarily formed from a material such as a perfluorinated polymer, which imparts low thermal conductivity to the linkage member (10). An outer layer of conductive material, such as steel, can be provided to enable heat to be transferred rapidly across the surface of the linkage member (10). The linkage member (10) can be substantially cylindrical in shape with a typical diameter of 15-30 mm and height of 12-15 mm.
