UV Curing

Medium pressure UV lamps are mainly installed where uv-reactive paints or coatings are used. Photo initiators within the substances are exposed to UV radiation thus creating a reaction in the ink or coating called polymerization. In addition to paints and coatings, industrial UV radiation is used in many other fields, e.g. in materials testing, photochemistry and because it destroys bacteria, mould, spores and viruses, for disinfection of material surfaces, air and water.

The main advantages of the UV process are:

  • The materials are free of solvents (VOC's) and therefore environmentally friendly
  • The timing period and hardness of the cured coating can be accurately defined
  • The uv cure is instant, therefore production time, energy costs and storage can be reduced significantly.

UV medium pressure lamps can be manufactured with lengths between 40 mm and 2800 mm and are available for capacities up to 60 kW.
