Coating and bonding

UV systems from IST METZ are used for different working widths for 2D and 3D applications. The surface treatment of three-dimensional objects makes special demands on curing technology. We therefore offer a number of solutions for a wide variety of requirements of UV coatings – including heat-sensitive materials.

Products from the IST METZ Group allow you to coat, bond or metallise plastics. Application examples are automotive parts for interior and exterior, household appliances, displays, cases for cosmetics, medical tapes and PVC flooring.


More about plastics



We offer air-cooled UV systems for curing solvent-based, solvent-free or water-based UV varnishes when coating metal. UV varnish guarantees coated parts a high level of protection from corrosion. UV technology is suitable for objects with a complex geometric design that are commonly used in the automotive industry.

Wood & wood materials

Depending on the requirements, wood and wood materials are printed with a range of UV curing finishes, e.g. fillers, sealants, base and top coats and varnished using UV inks. The UV technology is used for the partial curing and pinning, for the pre-gelation and for matting and final curing of finishes and inks.
