FAQWhat are Curing Ovens used for?
A Curing Oven is an industrial oven that is intended to create a chemical reaction in a material once a specific temperature is achieved. Definitions for curing offer different viewpoints on the process. Engineering and Polymer Chemistry refer to curing as the process of increasing the strength and durability of a substance. The online dictionary describes curing as the preparing or finishing of a material by means of a physical or chemical process. However, for our purposes, Merriam-Webster’s dictionary has the most accurate description referring to curing as altering a substance by physical or chemical means for the purpose of preparing it for use. Curing allows the materials to be toughened by heating individual links of the material until they can be cross-linked together into a chain; like a chain of DNA.
What to look for in a purchasing quality Curing Ovens:
The most important aspect of a curing oven is heat uniformity. Ideally, the goal is to obtain plus or minus 5° (F), but on the larger ovens plus/minus 10° is optimal. This level of uniformity is achieved by calculating the right amount of air changes per minute based on fan speed and cubic feet per minute. The larger the curing oven depth is the more fans are required. Uniformity is optimized further by engineering the flow of air through the sides and up through the vents.
