Paint is the most common finishing process. Most industrial and commercial paint applications, including automotive, require baking of the wet paint. An elevated oven temperature promotes evaporation or drying of the paint’s solvent, or water “carrier” thereby depositing solidson the work. The result is a hard, durable finish. LEWCO Paint Baking ovens are used extensively in many industries.
Unlike paint, powder coating is a dry finishing process that is based on polymer resin systems that require heat to cause a chemical reaction. The reaction causes a cross linked molecular structure that results in a hard, durable finish.
LEWCO offers a wide range of standard batch ovens and continuous process ovens for the many high-end paint and powder curing applications. Our ovens deliver an evenly distributed, uniform heat to the products’ surfaces unlike other low-end oven systems. Depending on the application needs, the product can be loaded via cart or fork truck into a batch oven, or conveyed via overhead conveyor or multiple other conveyor system options.
