Fast and elegant inline curing
Glass fibers are ideally suited for UV curing due to their radiolucency. The component (sheets, sleeves or profiles) can be stressed immediately after curing and cooling and processed further. Due to these short processing times, the UV curing process is ideal for serial and continuous processes. The process is also a good choice for particularly large components. UV curing does not only allow CO2-free operations, but is also particularly suitable for serial production thanks to fast throughput times.
