Infrared Heat technology for Building Envelope

Infrared emitters are particularly suitable for the efficient production of materials used in the construction industry. These materials include non slip roof plates, safe roofing systems, hard wearing floor coverings and sewage pipes that are mechanically strong and chemically resistant.

Infrared emitters for building materials

Infrared emitters transmit energy without contact, efficiently and homogeneously. Short-wave and carbon infrared emitters react within seconds, and allow heat processes to be controlled precisely. This way, no energy is wasted during embossing, laminating or thermoforming processes. Gas-catalytic infrared cures coating powder especially efficiently.

Your advantages with infrared:

  • Precise heat transmission helps process plastic products without deforming them
  • Infrared emitters can be positioned accurately at the embossing gap which helps to save energy
  • Shaped infrared emitters apply heat precisely where a pipe is to be formed

Here are some application examples:

Gas catalytic IR for powder coated timber products

Climate Coating Ltd in New Zealand developed an innovative method for powder coating surfaces of plywood, MDF and gypsum plaster boards. An essential component of the new method is a Heraeus gas-catalytic infrared oven.
