Gas catalytical infrared systems for glossy boat hulls

15.06.2015

Summer, sun, boating!

However, the boat varnish should adhere perfectly and shine impressive.

Gas Catalytic infrared system from Heraeus Noblelight help to solve this. Generally, the marine industry relies upon wet finishing systems which give the desired hull color.

Further protection to the high gloss finish can be provided by an extra two part polyurethane clear coat.

Multipurpose boat sheds tend to be big, cold and dusty which makes high gloss finishing difficult to achieve.

The cold atmosphere can cause an “orange peel” effect on the finished paint, so the generally accepted method of heating the shed is to use a hot air circulation system, prior to wet spraying. Unfortunately the air movement causes dust to become airborne which can then land on the newly painted surface.

Jorge Borges, owner of International Marine approached Heraeus (formerly Vulcan Catalytic Systems) for help in speeding up the complete process, and improving the finish on completed boats.

Now Gas Catalytic IR Heat could be used to achieve a boat hull with a finish which meets proud owners expectations of a high gloss finish with no imperfections. The added advantage is that Jorge can complete a simple paint job in a day.

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
