In this research, the effect of coating composition (polyetherimide (PEI)) on the physical and mechanical characteristics as well as pure water flux (PWF) of the PSf/PEI composite membranes. The physical characteristics of membranes were analyzed based on the acquisition of surface and cross section morphology, porosity and pore size of PSf/PEI coated membranes, while the mechanical characteristics of membranes were analyzed based on the membrane's ability to maintain surface and internal pore size when applied to external loads (Young's modulus). Meanwhile, the PWF is obtained from the analysis using a "dead-end" membrane reactor with an operational pressure of 1 atm separation. The results of surface and cross-sectional morphology analysis showed that the level of PSf/PEI membrane pore density increased with increasing PEI contents in the coating solution. This finding is in line with the results of porosity and pore size analysis of the membrane using dry-wet weight method which shows a decrease in porosity and pore size along with the increase in polymer coating levels applied in the PSf/PEI coated membrane manufacturing process. The decrease in porosity and pore size is closely related to the increase in mechanical strength and a decrease in PWF of the PSf/PEI composite membrane
