Constructing With Infrared Heat Technology
Creating New Products and Bonding Diverse Materials Together
Applications exist in almost every market for bonding as an alternative to mechanical fastening or welding. Construction, building and utility industries use infrared heat technology in creating both new products (composite based) and in heating and bonding diverse materials together – such as metal/plastics combination.
Along with the potential for time, process, and cost improvements, other benefits of bonding and infrared heat welding are stress reduction on parts and the ability to bond dissimilar substrates. Infrared energy accurately and deeply penetrates the interface zone, making localized precision welding feasible while minimizing surface damage.
