Coating & bonding

UV systems for varnish and adhesive applications systems

UV technology is successfully used for many industrial applications, for example when coating automotive parts, household appliances and steel pipes or when bonding displays. The use of UV curable ink and varnish systems is one way of ensuring compliance with increasingly stringent EU environmental legislation. In addition to water-based varnish and powder coating technology, UV ranks as one of the three technologies of the future for surface engineering.
