Using Infrared Linescanner Data to Optimize Waterborne Basecoat Solvent Evaporation 2000-01-1360

The effectiveness of the heated flash oven is a key process in most waterborne basecoat environments. If there is too much variation in the process stage, the quality of the surface finish can be dramatically affected. A new method was developed to set and maintain the process. The solution is comprised of infrared linescanners and a custom developed software package that performs math-based analysis. The data from the solution was validated and successful optimization of the heated flash oven was completed.
