At Thermal Innovations Corp., we manufacture custom ultraviolet curing systems capable of meeting a variety of size, material, and throughput requirements. UV curable coatings are becoming increasingly popular as an environmentally friendly alternative to solvent-based chemicals. As the market has searched for a suitable alternative to solvent-based coatings, chemical manufacturers have expanded the variety of UV curable options. Everything from powder coatings to printing inks are now available in UV curable formulas. Curing using ultraviolet requires significantly less time than analogous thermal drying processes. In some cases, throughput can be additionally increased by preheating the coating prior to application. We can work with customers to develop an innovative solution that meets their heating and performance needs.

Because curing is performed through a photochemical reaction, the part is not subjected to the high temperatures required by traditional curing processes. This opens up the possibility of parts that can be coated to heat sensitive materials such as wood and MDF. Customers in the furniture industry have greatly benefited from our ability to replace laborious and expensive laminating processes with automated UV cured powder coating lines. These solutions not only increase throughput, they increase product quality and significantly reduce scrap rates. We have many systems in operation throughout the country that potential customers can observe in use. For additional information about our UV curing systems, see the table below, or contact us directly.
