Designed to help collision centers be more productive, efficient and profitable, GFS’ AdvanceCure Accelerated Airflow Systems greatly reduce the amount of time needed to cure or dry any type of base coat — be it waterborne or solvent-based.
The key to its amazing results is the turbulent airflow it creates. This type of airflow dramatically improves the heat transfer from the air to the painted panels, and provides more even heat distribution over the entire vehicle.
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.
In order to achieve faster drying times, boundary air must be disrupted and dispersed. AdvanceCure does this by creating controlled turbulent airflow on the surface of the vehicle. The result is drastically reduced drying times and better paint finishes.
Since warm air rises, the air near the ceiling of a paint booth is warmer than the air near the floor. As a result, the vehicle surface temperature varies from top to bottom, often by 15 percent or more. By introducing controlled turbulent airflow, AdvanceCure evenly distributes heat throughout the spray booth and over the vehicle, allowing the coated surfaces to cure faster.
Cut Drying in Half
In a typical downdraft spray booth, it can take up to 20 minutes to achieve a surface temperature over the entire vehicle of 140 degrees. With AdvanceCure, the time to bring the entire vehicle up to temperature can be reduced to about eight minutes —that’s less than half the time!
Full Vehicle or Spot Painting
AdvanceCure’s unique control system allows you the ability to operate each module independently, making it just as effective for spot painting a single panel as it is for painting an entire vehicle.
Easy to Adjust
With independently adjustable nozzles on each module of the standard AdvanceCure System, airflow can reach all areas of the paint booth. Simply direct the nozzles at problem areas or at regular intervals around the spray booth. The optional laser-aiming device makes pinpointing specific areas of the painted surface a cinch.
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.
On & Off Without Leaving the Booth
With the optional internal activation switch unobtrusively installed inside your paint booth, you can easily activate the AdvanceCure System with the press of a button, without ever needing to open the cabin doors.
I-Series Cabin Integrated Systems
I-Series AdvanceCure models are completely integrated into a GFS booth, making better use of the booth’s space and resources. As opposed to R-Series, there is need to cut holes into the walls or add additional duct onto the exterior of the booth. Our sleekest I-Series model features motors that are hidden in the plenum.
All GFS Ultra®, Performer and CTOF Booths are designed to integrate with the AdvanceCure I-Series.
R-SERIES RETROFIT SYSTEMS
Designed to Fit Any Existing Paint Booth
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 paint booths.
Modules can be placed in the corner or on the sidewall of the booth and feature either fully integrated or remote blowers.
Designed for Premium Performance
The Blade® option for GFS’ AdvanceCure System improves upon the class-leading performance of the nozzle system. Tested in conjunction with paint companies, AdvanceCure Blade provides premium performance and reduced maintenance. The exclusive, air-knife design allows for precise direction of air through small slits in the module.
Less maintenance, with no need to move or clean nozzles
Longer towers allow for more even air distribution
Nozzle plenum is 6 feet long
Blade plenum is 10 feet long
The Blade option can be added to any horizontal AdvanceCure I-Series models and is standard on all Ultra XP1 and Performer XP1 models.
Re-Engineered & Improved
GFS is always looking for ways to improve our products, and AdvanceCure is no stranger to continuous improvement. This system has come a long way since it was first launched in 1998, as 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.
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.
