During the UV-curing process solvents and other volatile substances in the protecting layers are vaporising due to the high temperatures in the lamp.
Repair of UV mirror-reflectors
These substances condense on the reflector surface and build up an unwanted layer. This layer then reduces UV reflectivity of the coating and brings down uniformity. As a result: refurbishment becomes necessary! amcoss strip-coats, polishes, cleans and re-coats. After refurbishment we carry out measurements which show that the coating and – as a consequence reflectivity – are extremely homogenous again. Reflectivity increases dramatically and intensity, uniformity and life-span are significantly going up.
