This Month’s Focus: Curing

Maximize your convection oven by using infrared

This column is provided to you by members of the Infrared Equipment Division (IRED) of the Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA). The group includes infrared (IR) curing equipment suppliers from throughout North America. We publish the column three times a year to give you the latest information about IR curing techniques and equipment. Contact information is at the end of the column. Most IR manufacturers offer testing for free or for a fee. Any IRED member can assist you in finding solutions to curing problems and best practices for finishing of coatings. This issue’s column was submitted by IRED member Scott Bishop and Joel Watts, Alabama Power Co., Birmingham, Ala.

Organizational structure of a custom coater job shop

The organizational structure of a successful custom coating job shop business is rooted by the basic principles that are required to deliver high quality reliable finishing services at a fair and reasonable price. Unlike restaurant franchise businesses such as Starbucks and McDonald’s that have a preset business structure and set of written rules to follow for consistent product output, the typical custom coating job shop must create its own policies and operational guidelines that are relevant to their unique company structure and customer base.

A new breakthrough in self-healing acrylic polymers

Self-healing polymers represent a new and upcoming technology that will improve a coating’s performance, sustainability, and customer satisfaction. Scratches and fractures of coatings will heal like skin without external intervention, resulting in a longer life span of coatings.
