News October 2015 | Paint curing even more energy-efficient

Dear Sir or Madam,

A very warm welcome to you with news from the Bright World of Metals and

Did you know that UNESCO proclaimed 2015 to be the "international year of light"? This is not surprising, because no other natural phenomenon has ever played such a comparably decisive role for humanity, culture and science. This medium with visible but also invisible parts could not be any more multi-facetted.

And especially that part of light, which is barely visible - ultraviolet and infrared radiation - is of particular interest to engineers. For example, in order to make paint curing even more energy-efficient. Read more in October’s topic of the month!

Lacke und Beschichtungen bleiben erst dauerhaft hochglänzend und kratzfest, wenn sie aufwendige Beschichtungsprozesse durchlaufen haben. Für den Hersteller können diese vielen Fertigungsschritte eine echte Herausforderung sein, denn sie verursachen häufig einen erheblichen Aufwand an Energie und Kosten. A solution for these problems may be application-optimised UV lamps, UV-LED systems and infrared heating solutions for efficient ink curing.

Zurbarán. Master of detail

Francisco de Zurbarán, Santa Casilda, ca. 1635
For the first time in Germany, a retrospective comprising around 70 works will be dedicated to the Spanish Baroque painter Francisco de Zurbarán (1598–1664) by Museum Kunstpalast. Zurbarán, alongside Velázquez, is regarded not only as one of the most important representatives of the Spanish Golden Age, but also as one of the great figures of European painting. The exhibition will also introduce a number of still lifes by his highly gifted son Juan de Zurbarán (1620–1649). Until 31 January 2016.
