Flash dryers or spot cure units as they are also known are special infra red dryers that are absolutely essential in a screen printing business.
A flash dryer provides an intermediary drying process without removing the garment from the press between print colours, usually after an underbase has been printed, and also between colours.
Whilst it is not necessary to flash dry after each colour, there will be combinations of ink colours that require a flash cure process to be used. Flash drying cures only to the gel point of the ink and is not the final cure. The final stage of curing is completed using an infra red tunnel, or conveyor dryer.
The Vastex range of spot cure units are compact in design and a perfect companion for business start-ups, home-based businesses, traveling printers and dedicated screen printing shops.
