Air jets are used as a wiping device to reduce the final thickness in some industrial coating applications. Existing theories allow only a given internal normal stress, i.e. impose a pressure distribution in the coating liquid, due to the jet. In this note, surface tension and tangential stresses are also included. In particular, numerical results are obtained which quantify the extent to which surface tension reduces the wiping effect of the jet.
