UV Light Curing Equipment

As a process, UV light curing provides advantages over traditional curing processes. With an environmentally conscious near-instant curing process, UV light curing systems are an ideal upgrade for industrial curing operations. DoctorUV is a trusted supplier of UV light curing technology with a variety of system options to choose from. We look forward to helping you understand UV light curing processes, our system offerings, and the benefits and applications of UV light curing equipment.

Light Curing Processes of UV and UV LED Curing Systems

UC Curing was adopted commercially in the 1960s, UV light curing provides advantages over other drying and curing methods. Using intense ultraviolet (UV) light, compatible inks, adhesives, and coatings react via photopolymerization rather than evaporation. UV LED curing systems offer efficient technologies featuring high speeds, low temperatures, and an essentially solvent-free production method. Through the photochemical reaction, UV light curing systems can achieve near-instantaneous curing, increasing production speeds and reducing rejection rates.
