Abstract

Proposed is use of an exothermic paint to produce an infrared (IR) heating device The paint may be applied by rotary atomization to produce the IR emitting structures on cylindrical tubes. Proper process design can enable voltage electrodes to be connected to the exothermic layer via masking prior to a coating operation. Alternatively, the exothermic layer may be applied via adhesive bonding after coating. The finished product can be used as an IR
