Benefits of UV Curable Coatings


Visitors: 377

Xsercoatings offers new range and decorative popular metal coatings with high durability. UV coatings are specifically offered for automobiles with advanced metal coatings. The main characteristics of UV coatings products are the solid elasticity, high chemical-physical resistance and reliable adhesion they offer. But that’s not all. While delivering high performance, these coatings are designed to have a lower level of impact on the environment than traditional coatings.

The most obvious benefit of using UV technology in the refinish industry is speed. When using traditional technologies, the urethane is still curing when it's taken away from the heat source. Automotive refinishers must wait for it to more fully dry and crosslink before applying the next coat. This is not the case with UV curing.

“Where a traditional urethane coating can be cured in hours, in the case of UV it's only a few minutes. “In the case of UV Curable Coatings, it is virtually 100% cross linked and is solvent-resistant within a few minutes. You can immediately apply the next coating. this makes the process much quicker without fear of losing quality of appearance.

“There are many tangible benefits that go with the speed benefit, " The biggest benefit for a body shop manager is they can do more jobs. If you shorten the process you have more space and the potential for more revenue.

The high quality of the finished product also makes UV Curable Coatings a viable choice for body shops. The technology offers quality of color gloss and distinctness of image.

“Ultimately the objective of a refinish body shop is to make invisible repairs so that consumers cannot tell it has been repaired. There are many tangent benefits that go with the UV coatings-

  1. Lower applied cost and return on investment- UV curable coatings, while typically more expensive than their conventional counterparts on a per gallon basis, are actually lower in overall cost once the complete process is taken into account. Much of the savings are speed, coating performance, and energy usage related.
  2. Performance- UV curable coatings provide protection for hundreds of materials and items you interact with everyday, from CDs/DVDs to your cell phone to your automobile. The extremely scratch resistant and tough coatings resulting from this process can be used in almost any application on almost every substrate.
  1. Environmentally friendly- these coatings also have no VOC or other environmentally hazardous materials. No HAPS, no VOC, and lower energy usage means that they are the greenest technology available.
