Gas Catalytic IR is easily absorbed by both aqueous and solvent based liquid finishes.
The use of Gas Catalytic IR in liquid curing processes offer the same advantages as in other curing processes such as E Coating and powder coating:
- The 3:1 principle applies. This means that for every 3 minutes a curing process would take in a convection oven, a Gas Catalytic IR oven would only take 1 minute.
- Gas Catalytic IR ovens are 50% the size of a convection oven.
- Gas Catalytic IR Ovens use up to 50% less energy than a convection oven.
Gas Catalytic Infrared Ovens from Vulcan Catalytic® Systems are modular in design, pre-wired and plumbed ready for use within one or two days of on site delivery. Yet, they are custom tailored to the customer’s specific requirements of part size, type of coating, conveyor height and line speed. Our catalytic heaters can be used in hazardous locations and have Factory Mutual and CSA approvals.
