The use of infrared radiation thermal imaging (IR-TI) has shown a wide variety of uses across a number of industries. IR-TI works by emissivity and because thermoset coatings are typically exothermic in nature, IR-TI has proven useful in providing information about coating application not detectable by the human eye. This article explores using IR-TI to evaluate and monitor coating application....
