Infrared heat dries protective coating on roof tiles

Infrared heat dries protective coating on roof tiles

Water drips off shower walls, roof tiles repel dirt, facades stay glossy, frequently, all this is the work of coatings with functional properties. For building facades or roofs a dirt-repellant coating is very practical, in healthcare it helps to keep rooms cleaner and perfectly hygienic. With ships and aircraft, the repellent effect can save energy and can even be of vital importance. Algae or shellfish which cling to ships, significantly affect propulsion and ice crystals on aircraft are a safety risk.
Coatings with functional properties, many of which are nano coatings, are also used on machine and engine parts such as linkage shafts of ships’ propulsion systems, which are exposed to salt water or other unfavorable weather influences.
However, all protective coatings must be applied and dried very homogenously so that their functional property is effective evenly and reliably over the complete component.
This means that the coating must be sprayed on in very thin layers, which are then dried quickly without destroying the special properties of the coating. Infrared emitters transfer heat efficiently without contact, with the aid of electromagnetic waves, which generate the heat primarily in the material. As a result, the adhesion of disruptive particles in the sensitive coating during drying is minimized.
Infrared emitters offer very fast reaction times. Shortwave and Carbon emitters from Heraeus react within one to three seconds. This ensures that heating is controllable and, combined with temperature control, helps to eliminate overheating of materials.
Rapid change-over of different types of coating having different burn-in temperatures are possible. And it also saves energy when the heat source needs to be switched on only when it is needed.
Heraeus Noblelight offers the spectrum of infrared heat from near infrared (NIR) to medium wave carbon infrared CIR, carries out tests with the materials in question and advises on the selection of the optimum emitters for the specific process.
Heraeus has more than 40 years experience with infrared emitters, both for end-users and for large OEMs and carries out practical tests with customer own materials in its own application centres to establish optimum process solutions

An infrared heating system from Heraeus Noblelight is helping to ensure the high quality of composite aerospace structures manufactured at the new GKN Aerospace facility at Western Approach, near Bristol. The system, which is used to provide interim processing of the laid-up composite rear spar assembly of the Airbus 350 XWB to prevent subsequent wrinkling, was custom-designed and developed in close co-operation with GKN Aerospace engineers following initial tests at
Seven Good Reasons for the D2plus Light module
Heraeus Noblelight, one of the technology and market leaders in the field of specialty light sources will again exhibit at ANALYTICA, to be held in Munich, Germany in April 2012. Heraeus will introduce its “Seven Good Reasons for D2plus Light modules” at the show, making the life of instrument developers easier. Developing new analytical instruments places ever-increasing demands on engineers, to design-in the best available light-source and avoid future operational problems.
Specialty Light Sources for the Printing Industry
Hanau, February 2012 The Competence in Specialty Light Sources for printing systems Special and personalized printing processes need special treatment. The ink of ink jet or laser printers need to be completely dried or cured before the printed sheets are passed on for subsequent operations such as stacking, cutting, folding or gluing. Infrared or UV technology is used for drying and curing, depending on the type of ink. Heraeus Noblelight presents its
Infrared Emitters Improve Lacquered Surfaces
Many screens, internal claddings in cars and high value cosmetic packages are manufactured from plastics and contain a protective lacquer or finishing. The drying of the coating on the plastic components is not a trivial matter, for the surfaces need to be perfectly cured without applying to much heat to the plastic. Infrared heaters transfer energy in a contact-free manner and are easy to control. Consequently, the heat is precisely
