Development of catalytic burners and of specifically adapted tunnels for the drying of lacquers and of stains

Objective

Develop catalytic substrates and corresponding catalytic burners characterised by high radiative power output, which are suited for lacquer and stain drying in correspondingly built and adjusted tunnels;
Reduce power consumption of drying tunnels for transparent and pigmented lacquers and stains by 30 to 50 % as compared to current processes (convective or (electric) radiative tunnels);
Determine the types of coatings which may suitably be dried or hardened by the developed process and which present the lowest possible environmental impact;
Ensure that the high required industrial quality standards of the coated products are preserved and verify the safety of the process.
