This article describes the move towards integrated coating systems, where the coating and method of drying or curing are selected to ensure efficient coating processes, while ensuring there is no reduction in the function of the coating itself. It briefly explores various methods of radiation curing and explains how these techniques can be used to meet production requirements and constraints and develop optimum coating solutions. There is also a brief case study, which describes the installation of an infra‐red system for pre‐heating steel drums in order to speed up a lacquering operation.
