adphosNIR® technology is based on the NIR wavelength range (800 nm up to 1,200 nm). With a peak of 800 nm, adphos is able to incorporate the highest possible energy densities in the smallest applicable areas with minimal effect on substrates and the surrounding environment.
adphosNIR® is a combination of near-infrared (NIR) light energy, management of the NIR energy, integrated hot air knives and moisture extraction.
adphos technology can be used for a wide variety of thermal processes including drying, curing, sintering and annealing. Applications include drying of high speed inkjet inks, water-based coatings and adhesives within the graphic arts market. Within industrial markets adphos technology can be used for the curing of powder coats and for sintering metalic inks for printed electronics (PE) applications.
