I keep reading that UV coating requires machines that cost a million dollars. So I never considered it. Then I see on youtube video’s of guys (who were obviously not millionaires) using it in there home shops. I then found that admiralty coatings offers a setup for around $2600 for the light. The coatings run 3-400 dollars a gallon though. However, it seems to me that it could save a shop thats doing finishing for a business a lot of money. UV coating is %100 solids, no VOC, and, I would imagine, therefore food/beverage etc safe as well.
Of course, I gues you’d have to be producing a lot of the same thing, widgets, that are all finished exactly the same way …..maybe. I need to think about it some more. Anybody here using UV coating?
