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.
This DIGITAL THERMOCOUPLE THERMOMETER
is an essential tool for those requiring the highest degree of accuracy and durability. It has a Total System Accuracy (instrument and probe accuracy combined) of +/-0.9F (+/- 0.5C) over the entire temperature range, -40F to 500F (-40C to 260C). Durable construction ensures reliable performance even after repetitive drops onto concrete and exposure to high temperature. Probe is made out of patented, high temperature, abrasion resistant cable, and maintains +/-0.9F (+/-0.5C) accuracy. Unit has an electroluminescent backlight and turns off after 5 minutes of non-use. Hold button "freezes" current reading. Factory-calibrated to NIST standards.
