Wood Coatings - UV Curing Applications

UV LED curing technology is ideally suited for the wood coatings industry for applications such as edge coating, roller coating and digital printing. UV LED technology drastically reduces energy consumption and significantly reduces work-piece surface temperature. Back to wood coatings overview.

Roller Coating

UV LED is a perfect match for roller coating lines, both for gelling and full-cure stations. The benefits include better factory floor utilization due to shorter, more efficient lines; increased uptime with no degradation in UV output, cheaper input stock due to lack of infrared heat; and reduced operating costs by more efficient electricity use and no need for costly air ducting systems.
