Iriotec® 9230 accelerates hardening through infrared absorption
Iriotec® 9230 copies nature so that coatings dry and harden faster: The almost transparent hair of a polar bear´s fur scatters and reflects with its hollow core visible light, while the almost black skin absorbs the heating fractions of sun light. With its light, translucent color the infrared absorbing pigment Iriotec® 9230 offers product design crucial advantages.
Infrared drying accelerates production and saves time and money. However, dark varnishes and coatings harden faster, due to their enhanced ability to absorb light. The light pigment Iriotec® 9230 helps reduce drying times and accelerates hardening of light-colored varnishes and coatings by absorbing infrared light and yet remaining discreetly in the background.
Iriotec® 9230 from EMD Performance Materials offers a fourfold advantage:
- It provides multiple possibilities for the color design of coatings – regardless of the color pigments ability to absorb infrared light.
- Shorter infrared drying times improve throughput and production capacity of IR drying units.
- Less investment due to smaller IR drying units.
- Significant reduction of energy and maintenance costs caused by smaller IR drying units.
