    Looking into IR Lamps for coating cure

    Before I would let the car sit for 24-48 hours before customer pickup, but now I may need to get the cars out faster. I have seen people using the IR lamps and I hear it speeds up the curing process?


    Just looking for some insight on which lamps everyone is using.

    Thanks!

    Have no experience with ir curing. But I have seen that Scangrip released last year a set of UV curing lamps. Don't know if it's getting you any benefit with a faster curing or something else it benefits from. They seems to draw very little electricity and is li-on battery powered.

    Search for Scangrip NOVA-UV S
    And see if it's something that could be an option to go with.

    Great lamp, multiple angle settings. Down side, rather a large (3 Heads) unit.

    Yes, I like it. Yep, it will decrease your curing time.
