Temperature has a direct relationship to curing speed: the higher the temperature the faster the cure. Yet, excessive heat may cause the substrate to distort, which can result in registration difficulties or substrate damage. Heat may also cause UV cure system components to fail. Therefore, understanding temperature is critical to ensuring proper cure and to safeguarding the substrate and system from potential failure.
The NON-CONTACT INFRARED PROBE
is an accurate, low-cost IR probe that can be used with all common Type K thermocouple meters. Perfect for use within confined work areas or when conditions require non-contact sensing. Calibrated at 140F to match a K type t/c within 2% from 70F 190F, and 180F which is 2% linear from 140F - 220F. Available in 2 temperature levels: M005-038 measures 140F - 220F (60C - 105C) and M005-039 measures 70F - 190F (20C - 90C).
