UV Powder Coating Pilot Line Facilities 

 

The following facilities are available for formulators and prospective customers to test their products. Each of them has Heraeus Noblelight America lamps in their labs. Testing is very useful for determining both processing parameters and surface cure properties.

Cy Frachon 

 

Built by Cy Frachon, specialists in the design and manufacture of small paint and powder coating lines, and installed at its own factory in Valence, Franc, this compact, fully-integrated line features Heraeus Noblelight America’s F300 microwave powered UV curing lamps, plus variable power, medium wave IR lamps supplied by Hereaus. 

 

The line is capable of curing UV powder and liquid coatings on complex 3-D parts, and can be used for heat sensitive preassembled parts, plastic, MDF and other heat sensitive substrates, up to an overall size of 250 x 250mm. 

 

To allow maximum flexibility in curing complex shapes, the four F300 lamps, mounted either side of an overhead track, are individually housed, giving them vertical, lateral and angular movement. The overhead transportation track allows linear movement of parts through the line and has rotational capability, enabling even distribution of UV and IR and further enhancing the ability to cure complex shapes where necessary.
