Accelecure Water-Based Drying
Part # acc-10
The Accelecure Water-Based Drying System Only from Garmat
Reduce drying times with these waterborne and solvent based products: Sometimes the best solution is the simplest - Garmat® USA’s Patented Accele-Cure™ Drying System. Utilizing a simple but strategically placed accelerator system, the laminar airflow is increased over the vehicle, dramatically reducing flash times and bake cycle times. Regardless of the type of paint system utilized, waterborne or solvent based, Garmat® USA’s Accele-Cure™ system offers many advantages.
How does Accele-Cure work?
The Accele-Cure™ system is mounted in the ceiling of the downdraft booth. The clean, filtered air from the booth ceiling plenum is “accelerated” over the car at a high velocity, allowing for faster evaporation of water or solvent during flash off. The Accele- Cure™ system is designed to speed up drying in the areas that are traditionally slower to dry, i.e. the roof, the hood and hard to reach areas under the mirrors. The faster the water/solvent is evaporated from the surface of the newly sprayed object, the faster that coat is cured, allowing for the next coat to be applied, almost instantly. Actual air flow measurements and testing show that the velocity of the existing downdraft airflow pattern increases significantly over the entire vehicle when using the Accele-Cure™ system.
The results are simple – dramatically reduced flash times and bake cycle times. When Leading Paint Manufacturers tested Accele-Cure™, the system performed better than their initial expectations. Accele-Cure™ has proven to reduce flash times of both waterborne and solvent based paints by at least 50%, resulting in a significant reduction of time needed to paint a vehicle. During the bake cycle, this accelerated airflow improves the heat transfer to metal, which decreases the bake cycle time, resulting in significant energy savings.
Waterborne Basecoat Applied to Metal Surface
Evaporation Rate Increases as Airflow is Increased Over Vehicle Surface
