Catalysis is the chemical reaction of the resin until it hardens. At the end of this process, the slabs are unloaded and moved to the next working lines.
Pedrini's RESINLINE plants make use of two types of ovens: the exclusive microwave oven system and a multi-level tower system.
To speed up the catalysis process, Pedrini has designed MICROWAVE, the microwave oven that is the result of an exclusive study carried out by the company, the first to broadly apply this technology in the natural stone sector.
The main stages of catalysis with microwave technology are:
Slab entrance into the oven
Automatic cycle to activate the resin even in depth in a few minutes
Doors opening for slab exit
Slab entry into the tower to complete the process
MICROWAVE is an oven that operates with closed doors with total safety for the operator.
Initial decrease in viscosity with deep resin penetration
Homogeneity of resin activation
Resin catalysis time reduction compared to conventional systems
Rapid and deep slab restoration with improved polishing result
Simplification of the retouching steps
Effective use of energy with reduced consumption
Use of all types of epoxy resin
Temperatures compatible with all types of marble and granite
Total safety for operators
Reduction of material stationing space between processes
