Better control of lamination
Published:  09 December, 2014

A fast response, medium wave infra-red system from HERAEUS NOBLELIGHT of Neston, Wirral, has reportedly allowed Weatherfast Ltd of Great Barr to achieve better control over the PVC membrane laminating of steel sheets/coil used in the gutter industry, while requiring much less space than the convection oven which was used previously.

The controllability has also provided an improvement in quality. Weatherfast is a privately owned company, which offers a wide range of waterproofing products both for the new build and refurb sector.

Weatherfast gutter systems are laminated with a walkable PVC tread pattern and this is achieved by feeding a coil of PVC through to a set of pinch rollers, where it is pressed onto a continuous coil/sheet of steel, which is simultaneously introduced into the rollers.
