The CureView gradient oven from Paul N. Gardner is designed to perform thermal tests and simulations on samples for the evaluation of thermal stability, flow behavior, chemical resistance and sample preparation for further testing.

The oven allows users to heat up test panels on a glass bed to a variety of temperature profiles from ambient 41°F (+5°C) to 662°F (350°C). Elevated temperatures are instantly generated by 32 spectral filtered infrared halogen heaters. The heaters can be controlled individually and allow the setting of virturally any form of temperature gradient, varying from a parabolic-shaped gradient to an ascending or descending slope to a number of temperature blocks.

Gradient profiles can be imported, measured by the CurveX oven logger system, in order to simulate the production process on a laboratory scale.
