UV Curing in Converting and Siliconizing

Manufacturers, contract and toll coaters with wide-web converting and siliconizing operations use UV curing because it delivers higher production rates, better functional properties and the ability to cure coatings on heat sensitive substrates.

UV Curing in Converting and Siliconizing

The use of UV curing ranges from hard coats on film products and decorative foils to laminating adhesives and silicone-based coatings on paper, films, and foils for a variety of intermediate and end use products. Heraeus Noblelight’s microwave-powered and Semray UV-LED curing systems provide high-output with long life and consistent output, across the web and over time, which is critical to ensure the highest production rates with the least waste and downtime for these high-speed production lines.

Your advantages with UV curing:

  • Increased production rates
  • Ability to run heat sensitive materials
  • Enhanced functional properties such as scratch and chemical resistance
  • Less scrap
  • More production flexibility
  • Less energy and floor space required

Your advantages with UV curing:

  • Scratch and chemical resistant topcoats on window films, as well as films and papers for electronics, medical and optical applications
  • Protective coatings (scratch, stain, and moisture resistance) on decorative foils and paper for RTA furniture, picture frame profiles, cabinets and store fixtures typically made of MDF or particle board
  • Enhancing ink receptivity on packaging films and paper
  • Release liner coatings for pressure-sensitive labels and tapes, medical bandages and hygiene products
  • Nanoimprint lithography and other processes for creating patterns on a film
  • Curing laminating adhesives (film-to-film, film-to-foil, and film-to-paper)
  • Hydrogels for transdermal and other patches
