1. What Is An Infrared Curing?
In the electromagnetic spectrum, the infrared radiations fall between the microwaves and the visible light.
The infrared energy travels in waves.
As the wavelength decreases, the energy increases.
In the case of the conventional heating technique, the air gets heated in the chamber, which in turn transmits the energy to the workpieces.
The generated infrared energy is directly absorbed by the coating.
The energy is also reflected in the parts.
So, here the curing is achieved with the help of the absorption technique where the heat is absorbed by the powder on the part surface.
The reflectors in the oven will also help to transmit some of the energy for the curing.
There will be a line of sight restriction for the curing based on IR technology.
2. What Is An Infrared Powder Coating Oven?
A powder coating oven that utilizes the energy of the Infrared waves for curing the powder sprayed parts is called an infrared powder coating oven.

20. Can You Explain The Working Of A Standard Infrared Powder Coating Oven?
Once the powder spray process on the workpiece is complete, then you can take it for the powder curing process using the infrared coating oven.
The powder sprayed parts are moved inside the infrared powder coating oven,
The oven is closed after loading the parts in the chamber.
There is a digital control panel provided on the outside of the oven.
The operator can program all the curing parameters on this control panel.
The curing time and the curing temperature needs to be set according to the instruction from the powder manufacturer.
Once you start the oven, then the system will start to heat the oven chamber.
The ramp-up time will be fast for the infrared curing oven.
So, the oven will hit the curing temperature fast.
The oven will stay at the curing temperature for the set curing time.
Both electricity and gas can be used as fuel to generate the IR energy waves.
If electricity is used as the fuel, then the tungsten filaments are capable of providing 3000 to 4000F of surface temperatures.
The nichrome filaments are capable of providing a surface temperature of 1800 to 2000F.
There will be a quartz tube enclosure for these filaments.
The surface temperature will be 1000 to 1200F for the long-wavelength generators.
Around 40 to 50 percent of the electric power will be converted to IR energy.
The rest of the energy will get converted to convection heating.
Here, the filaments and lamps act as the IR emitter.
There will be reflectors along with it to focus the energy beams.
The metal walls of the powder-curing oven will also act as the reflector of the IR waves.
In the case of the gas ovens, the operation is slightly different.
Here, a ceramic emitter is heated with the help of flames.
Thus, the ceramic emitter will generate the IR radiations for curing the parts.
There are flameless models also.
You can get gas-powered IR curing ovens in short and medium wavelengths.
In many cases, the pairing of the gas IR with convection gas helps to provide a fast ramp-up time for the oven.
Once the curing process is over, you can take out the cured workpieces from the infrared curing oven.
You must not handle these parts directly.
You must allow the cured parts to rest at room temperature for some time.
Thus, you will get the fully finished powder-coated parts with the help of the infrared powder coating machine.
21. Continuous Vs Batch Processing Infrared Powder Curing Oven- Which is Good?
The choice between the batch and the continuous processing powder coating oven is based mainly on your process.

Here, the powder sprayed parts for curing are hanged on the conveyor lines.
The operator can program the conveyor lines to facilitate their movement in and out of the infrared coating oven.
So, it will help you to save on the labor charges.
There won’t be any closing doors for the continuous processing infrared powder coating ovens.
It will only have air curtains at both ends.
So, the loss of heat will be more for the continuous processing oven.
The continuous processing infrared powder curing oven is more suited for the automated solution for the curing of the workpieces.
If you have parts of different sizes, then the batch processing infrared oven is good.
The continuous processing oven is more suited for parts of similar sizes.
When you deal with huge quantities of parts for curing, then the continuous processing oven is the best solution.

24. Is It Possible To Check If The Powder Coating On The Parts Is Cured Or Not?
When you are done with the curing of the parts using the infrared powder curing oven, you need to ensure that the curing is proper.
You must not check the curing on the parts directly after taking them from the oven.
The workpieces must be allowed to rest at room temperature for some time.
You must check the curing only after the parts are cooled down properly.
It is essential to ensure that the curing is proper on the parts.
There are different tests that you can do on the parts to test the curing.
Some of the popular curing tests are listed below.
Gloss meter testing is used in many businesses.
In this test, the gloss meter is used to check the gloss reading on the cured part.
This reading will be compared with the reading on the sample part.
If they match, then the curing is proper.
This test is more accurate.
You can also use the color matching test.
The color on the final cured part is checked with the color on the sample piece.
If there is a mismatch, then the curing is improper.
You can also perform the MEK test to check the curing on the parts.
