Like we mentioned in Part-1 of our Curing Process blog series, the curing process can help us avoid boring, time-consuming household tasks, such as ironing. Curing helps manufacturers create wrinkle-free shirts and other clothing that no longer requires ironing. The heat generated during the curing process causes the fibers of the shirt to expand and straighten, which makes the material resistant to wrinkling. Tableware manufacturers also use the curing process , as most ceramic cups take a trip through curing ovens. Curing the ceramic coatings improves the cup’s water repellency, increases the gloss, and improves resistance to chemicals and abrasions.
