Because of the consistency of infrared heat it’s ideal for drying both paper and textiles. That consistency means the heat is applied evenly across the material.

When drying textiles, infrared heat can be used on both sides of the material. Because infrared doesn’t penetrate deeply there is no damage to dyes, designs, or the structure of the cloth.

If you’re applying special coatings to paper, drying those coatings with infrared means the coated stock retains its flexibility which results in a better paper quality overall. The same principle applies when you need to dry ink applied to paper.
