Paper Abstract

UV Curing is highly adaptable to printing, coating, decorating and assembling of a great variety of products and materials owing to some of its key attributes, it is: a low temperature process, a high speed process, and a solventless process--cure is by polymerization rather than by evaporation. The latest developments in UV lamps for industrial processing are presented. Among these are: (1) the selection and control of the lamp emission spectra to match the optical properties of the film and its photoinitiator, (2) sustained high power lamp operation at 6 kilowatts, and (3) the use of absorptive dichroic reflectors to manage the relative components of UV and infrared energy in the highly focused radiation delivered to surfaces being processed.
