IR Drying of Paints – with Sunkiss Matherm
Within our range, we supply catalytic infra-red ovens. Since the 1950’s, Sunkiss Matherm of France has used Catalytic heated panels to originally to heat large open areas (such as places of worship), utilising the organic properties of Catalytic combustion.
This progressed into the curing of paints, dyes and inks – in fact, any organic product that is heated to accelerate the cure time. Another principle advantage is the reduction in ‘flash off’ time. Normally, ‘flash off’ is used on wet paint and it prevents the encapsulation of solvents beneath the surface of the paint. As they pop out during the curing process creating surface defects, Catalytic IR has no such problem with solvents, as it drives them out during the curing process.
This then became the trademark for the original Thermoreactor Ovens. As the UK & Ireland integrator for Thermoreactor Catalytic infra-red ovens, Unitech Machinery design the whole project, with the Thermoreactors coming in from France. Unitech Machinery have worked with Sunkiss Matherm on projects such as Leyland Trucks the biggest Thermoreactor oven in Europe.
