Can-Am says its Atmosphere Control Solutions can create virtually any temperature and/or humidity condition inside a paint booth or drying tunnel, providing the ideal curing conditions for specific coatings/applications.
If a coating requires that atmospheric conditions change during the curing process, the system can radically alter those conditions in short periods of time. It programs a complete recipe for curing the coating, so the process is completely automated and system operation is simplified.
This enables environmentally-friendly water-based coatings to be used without a reduction in throughput; often processing time is improved over solvent-based coatings, the company says.
