UV Curing


UV Curing

UV-oxidation_image_w700 (1).jpg

Ultraviolet curing (commonly known as UV curing) is a photochemical process in which high-intensity ultraviolet light is used to instantly cure or “dry” inks, coatings or adhesives.


UV formulations are liquid monomers and oligomers mixed with a small percent of photoinitiators, and then exposed to UV energy. In a few seconds, the formulation - inks, coatings or adhesives instantly “harden” or cure, ready for the next processing step.

Advantages with Infrared Heat
and UV Radiation

Infrared systems enable heat to be dosed. This allows temperature profiles during tempering or specific drying at the surface.

Optical Adjustment 
to the Process

Only the focused use of UV or IR radiation with corresponding paint formulations can optimise processes. This makes the use of energy efficient.

Strong Tools
Experts for Customer
Specific Solutions

Heraeus' application experts give advice on finding the right solution for your process. Industrial processes can be simulated and materials tested with IR heat, UV technology or Arc and Flash systems.

Paints on glass surfaces are to look beautiful for as long as possible. They will be able to resist cleaning agents and scratching only if they are optimally cured. UV systems cure intensively. 

Precisely Adjusted to
Material Properties

UV LEDs transmit energy without generating ozone. This makes the curing of ink even more environmentally friendly.

How to make the
best UV LED curing system decision

Making an investment decision about new UV LED curing equipment shouldn’t be made on “good feel”. One of the best ways to substantiate the investment decision and compare UV LED curing equipment suppliers with differing offers is to assess the total cost of ownership (TCO).
