Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR DRYING A COATING ON A SUBSTRATE EMPLOYING MULTIPLE DRYING SUBZONES
(FR) APPAREIL ET TECHNIQUE DE SECHAGE D'UN REVETEMENT SUR UN SUBSTRAT EN FAISANT APPEL A PLUSIEURS SOUS-ZONES DE SECHAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus (10) and method for evaporating a coating solvent from a coating (12) on a first substrate surface of a substrate (14) and for minimizing the formation of mottle as the coating solvent is evaporating. A drying oven (10) includes an enclosure (17) having an entrance (27) and an exit (28) and defining a first drying zone (18). A plurality of drying subzones are within the first drying zone (18). At least two of the plurality of drying subzones employ different and controllable drying conditions. Physical barriers are not required to create the plurality of drying subzones.
(FR)Appareil (10) et technique permettant de faire évaporer un solvant d'un revêtement (12) sur une première surface d'un substrat (14) et de minimiser le jaspage lorsque le solvant de revêtement s'évapore. Une étuve à séchage (10) comprend une enceinte (17) qui comporte une entrée (27) et une sortie (28) et qui définit une première zone de séchage (18). Cette première zone de séchage (18) comprend plusieurs sous-zones de séchage. On emploie des conditions de séchage différentes et contrôlables dans au moins deux de ces sous-zones. Il n'y a pas besoin de barrières physiques pour séparer les diverses sous-zones de séchage.
