Catalytic IR Explanation


Gas Catalytic infrared is a flameless infrared technology medium that we use to dry and cure wet product or dry powder coating on a variety of substrates in many different industries.


It is an exothermic chemical process in which gas (natural gas, propane, or butane) is converted into energy and long wave IR through precious metals such as platinum and palladium.


It is a totally flameless catalytic process using chemical conversion to catalyze the gas into energy we then emit in installations.


The gas catalytic emitters are safer than many types of electric infra-red with elements that are susceptible to failure. Gas catalytic IR is more effective than electric infrared as the emission spectrum ideally matches the absorption spectrum of organic coatings.


When working with temperature sensitive substrate (resinous woods and plastics for example) the temperature should remain as low as possible.


We are only able to achieve this with catalytic infrared technology, relying on the long wave infrared to cure the product and not direct heat as with other drying media.


This technology works to fully dry and cure the following:

  • Solvent based (base and topcoats - pigmented and clear) high solid AC lacquers.
  • Water borne (stains, base and topcoats pigmented and clear
  • Polyurethanes
  • Acrylics
  • 2K products

The gas catalytic infrared heaters will dry and cure almost any wet finish in a fraction of the time that it would take traditional methods at a fraction of the running cost.


Why use a Schubert gas catalytic infrared system?

  • Significant improvement in throughput.  Removes curing bottleneck!
  • Reduces work in progress.
  • Reduces rework due to environmental contamination.
  • VOC oxidation of solvent based coatings.
  • Small footprint 
  • Very little maintenance
  • Full ATEX certification on emitters
  • Total flameless heat and FULL CURE
  • Does not have to be exhausted out of the building. Huge Savings!
  • Lowest cost of ownership in the market. Uses very little electricity and natural gas.
  • Improved finishing environment for workers in the finish room.
