At PaintExpo, which takes place from 17.-20. April 2018 in Karlsruhe, UV specialist and world market leader IST METZ will present a wide range of UV and LED systems for curing industrial coatings using UV technology in hall 2 at booth 2628.

At IST METZ GmbH’s booth at PaintExpo, visitors will learn everything about excimer technology which is used in many industrial sectors and applications for matting, disinfection, cleaning and modification of surfaces. An excimer lamp is a source of ultraviolet light with an extremely high energy emission at a wavelength of 172 nm. The result of curing with excimer lamps are extremely hard and matt surfaces that offer high scratch and abrasion resistance.

Air-cooled UV system for industrial applications

With the MBS-5 L IST METZ presents, for example, an air-cooled UV system for industrial applications. This is a powerful UV unit with a lamp of 550 mm to 1,600 mm. The integrated URS technology is characterized by the optimum matching of reflector geometry and reflection properties to the production process. The reflectors can be easily replaced if the curing result can be improved by a different reflector geometry or coating.

HANDcure: Mobility meets high power

Another highlight at the UV specialist’s booth stand is the mobile and wireless HANDcure LED handheld unit for spot and area irradiation. The handheld unit is typically used in the field of cross-linking and detection, where controlled curing and immediate handling stability are essential. The device has a spectral range from 365 nm to 415 nm and weighs 1,0 kg in the basic version. This ensures fatigue-free working in a wide range of applications.
