Solary Infrared Paint Curing Lamp Purchase Guide

10/27/19

Infrared Paint Curing Lamp, usually called IR, is used to cure paint during repainting in body shop. It speeds up the curing process to minimize the damage resulted from the curing environment. IR also helps body shop technicians to meet tight deadlines.

There are 3 types of infrared in the market: long wave, medium wave and short wave, with long wave the least efficient (longest curing time) to short wave the most efficient (highest temperature, shortest curing time, can cure complex areas). Solary offers a wide variety of short wave IR lamps that can meet various curing needs. We prepared this purchase guide to summarize the difference and key features among our IR lamp collection.
