UV Paint Curing
UV light produces a chemical reaction that is used in industrial applications such as UV paint curing, primers, fillers and clearcoats as well as inks and other types of coatings. Much quicker and more efficient than traditional baking methods, UV paint curing systems also offer significant energy savings without producing any hazardous byproducts. First introduced in the 1960’s, UV lamps have rapidly gained acceptance by a diverse range of industries and are now the preferred choice of many OEMs across the globe.
To instantly cure paints, and a variety of other coatings and finishes including lacquers, glazes and varnishes, high-intensity ultraviolet lamps are used to create a photochemical reaction. On the other hand, conventional water and solvent based thermal drying methods work by solvent evaporation, which not only takes time but also creates polluting emissions. With UV light systems’ instant curing, manufacturers report higher production rates, better bonding, no loss of volume and less likelihood of product damage as in slower drying methods. Along with being environmentally-friendly, UV lamps are also easy to operate and maintain.
Light Sources and our European partner, LightTech are global leaders in designing, engineering and manufacturing high-tech UV curing lamps. We produce three main types of UV curing lamps including: medium pressure UVA curing; high pressure curing; and low pressure UVC amalgam curing. Our lamps are extremely long-lasting and energy-efficient, and our compact design makes retrofitting easy-to-do. In addition to our line of high-quality standard lamps, we can also design and develop a highly customized system to meet your specific needs.
All of our UV lamps are constructed from the highest quality materials and manufactured in state-of-the-art facilities. We invite you to browse our website for more information regarding UV light applications, and keep in mind, our experts are more than happy to discuss the various aspects of our UV curing technology as well as our other MPUV products.
