What is UV Curing?
UV curing is a specialized process by which high intensity ultraviolet light to cure paint to a hard, durable, and chemical resistant finish in just seconds. Available in 100% solids, waterborne, and solvent based formulations, UV curing has the ability to dramatically reduce the footprint of your paint line while reducing energy costs and improving quality. UV cure coatings are unique because they use light rather than heat energy to cure and depending on the formulation can dry in less than a second upon exposure to UV light. UV cure coatings can be made non flammable and low VOC or VOC free to meet your environmental and safety needs.
