i just did, but didn't really find anything on coating (i'm operating on high school french too). 
i found this on the other site: 
it seems they use some kind of support for the emulsion. 

on the phototypie site, it says that copper once was used instead of glass. but it's not used anymore,  "for various reasons" and "the biggest one being the price". 
so, if one can use copper instead of glass, one could probably use a cheap sheet of galvanized steel too and use the good old magnetic sign material for a coating frame...
