Designed to help body shops be more productive, efficient and profitable, GFS’ AdvanceCure® greatly reduces the amount of time needed to cure or dry any type of coating — be it waterborne or solvent-based.
The key to AdvanceCure®’s amazing results is the convection-type airflow it creates. This type of airflow dramatically improves the heat transfer from the air to the painted panels, and provides much more even heat distribution over the entire vehicle.
By reducing the amount of time required for each paint job, GFS’ AdvanceCure® helps put more jobs through your shop, uses less energy, and actually improves the final finish quality!
When the paint booth is in spray mode, a layer of slow moving air — known as boundary air — forms on the vehicle surface. The boundary air traps solvents and shields the vehicle surface from the temperature rise in the booth during cure mode, therefore slowing down the paint drying process.
Cabin Integrated Systems for Newer Model GFS Booths
The newest evolution of GFS’ AdvanceCure® System includes models that are completely integrated into a GFS booth. Since the system is integrated into the design and construction of the booth, it makes better use of the booth’s space and resources. As opposed to the standalone units, there is no longer a need to cut holes into the walls or add additional duct or motors onto the exterior of the booth. Our sleekest AdvanceCure® I-Series model features motors that are hidden in the plenum.
All current GFS auto refinish booths, CTOFs and workstations are designed to support the AdvanceCure® I-Series, so that you can easily add the system at any time.
AdvanceCure® I-Series Examples
Retrofit Systems Designed to Fit in Any Existing Paint Booth
With the R-Series, GFS’ AdvanceCure® System can be installed in virtually any model or brand of paint booth or prep station. The AdvanceCure® R-Series comes in multiple designs to accommodate various styles and sizes of booths. Modules can be placed in the corner or on the sidewall of the booth, and feature either fully integrated or remote blowers.
AdvanceCure® R-Series Examples
Designed for Premium Performance
Tested by paint companies, the Blade® option for GFS’ AdvanceCure® System offers premium performance. The exclusive air-knife design allows for precise direction of air through small slits in the module. AdvanceCure Blade® has been proven to provide better vehicle coverage, and requires less maintenance, with no need to move nozzles around.
The Blade option can be added to any horizontal AdvanceCure® (R-Series & I-Series) models.
It’s no secret that warm air rises. The air near the ceiling will be warmer than the air near the floor. As a result, the vehicle surface temperature will also vary from the top to bottom, often times by up to 15° or more. By introducing controlled turbulent airflow, AdvanceCure® helps distribute the heat much more evenly throughout the booth and over the vehicle. This allows the coated surfaces to cure much more effectively in much less time.
For example, to achieve a surface temperature of 140° over the entire surface of the vehicle in a typical downdraft booth, it can take up to 20 minutes! With AdvanceCure®, the time to bring the entire vehicle up to temperature can be reduced to about 8 minutes. That’s less than half the time!
The AdvanceCure® system provides superior contamination control so that dirt and dust stay out of your paint finish. Before air leaves the AdvanceCure® module, it is triple filtered. Air flows through a pre-filter at the booth intake, ceiling filter and filter within the module.
With five models, the AdvanceCure® system can be retrofitted into any existing make or model of paint booth. The corner models work well for most retrofit applications, as they only require minor booth modifications.
With AdvanceCure®’s multiple independently adjustable nozzles on each module, there’s no area of the booth that the airflow can’t reach. Simply direct the nozzles at problem areas, or at regular intervals around the booth, and AdvanceCure® will take care of the rest. The optional laser-aiming device (at left) makes pinpointing specific areas of the painted surface a cinch.
Does not apply to AdvanceCure® Blade
Want one module on, but not the others? How about two on and two off? With GFS’ AdvanceCure®, you can use any combination you want. Our unique control system gives you complete control over each individual module, making it just as effective for spot painting a single panel as it is for painting the entire vehicle.
With the optional AdvanceCure® internal activation switch unobtrusively installed inside your booth, you can easily activate your AdvanceCure system with the press of a button, without ever needing to open the cabin doors! This simple device can provide major time savings for the painter on each and every job.
GFS guarantees that our products meet or exceed all of the applicable codes related to the equipment. Our engineers regularly follow and contribute to the advancement of codes and standards that affect the industries that we work in. One of our engineers currently serves on the NFPA Technical Committee on Finishing Processes, a key standard in the finishing industry.
GFS is always looking for ways to improve our products. The AdvanceCure® system is no stranger to continuous improvement. This system has come a long way since it was first launched in 1998, the first of its kind on the market.
Today’s AdvanceCure® system is far more efficient than previous models, and can be placed in virtually any spray booth or prep station.
