The PhotoFusion process brings many advantages to the aerospace sector including key improvements and innovations in durability. These include UV resistance, labor cost reduction, coatings removal, robotic placarding and logo application, anti-icing, superhydrophobic coatings application , and a dramatic increase in processing speed by the elimination of drying time and masking which represents 60% of the cost of aircraft refinishing.
Laser applied powder coatings are not only fast but they are very durable and come in a wide range of colors. Rapidly change colors to suit your mood even if you are not a chameleon. Drop your car off by 9:00 AM and pick it up in time for dinner with someone special. Imagine coatings so fast and affordable you can change them to suit your mood. Moreover laser systems can remove previous coatings efficiently and can be fully automated to eliminate much of the labor cost incurred with automotive refinishing. Laser applied powder coatings need no masking as any uncured powder is simply blown off the surface to be recycled. Better for you and the environment as laser applied powder coatings contain no solvents; therefore no VOCs or HAPs to deal with so they can be applied in restrictive air quality zones without the need for expensive scrubbers.
The coatings requirement in the petrochemical sector is particularly demanding. Coatings are selected not only to fulfill harsh operational objectives and safety but to protect and preserve the natural environment as well. The PhotoFusion system offers key advantages in the application of fluoropolymers used in petrochemical processing heretofore thought as impossible. These applications include coating thicknesses in excess of 2mm thick and in situ (mobile) applications and repairs.
Interlaminar Conductive Coatings
Bring a new dimension of design into your structures with our patent pending Interlaminar Conductive Coatings. The integration of electronic circuits and sensors can now be applied selectively between coating layers .This gives coating applications a whole new ability that monitor and sense integrity failures on critical systems and equipment.
If you’ve ever wanted to painted an object with the kind of accuracy you would find in a 3d printer, it is now possible with a new technique developed by PhotoFusion. Objects of various sizes and shapes can be colored without the need of building the object with a 3d printing system. 3d painting stations can be made for desktop environments to industrial robotics. Objects can vary from finely crafted miniatures or pottery to doors or interior walls. These types of high resolution graphics can be applied over structures with complex surface geometry.
