The new era of wood finishing!
Powder-coating is very common in the metal-working industry as it has a lot of advantages – it is an innovation for the wood industry, though. Wood lives and shows different characteristics depending on quality, age and origin. Our partner has developed this technology in a way that it can be applied for MDF (medium-density fibremboards) in a very high quality and is environmentally friendly on top of that.
Remains good where it gets scratches
Either as dining table or in the office. Surfaces of furniture have to stand great challenges every day but you don't see this on our powder-coated surfaces. They are very rugged and resist.
Health and environment
Our powder coatings are free of solvents and toxins. Other than conventional coatings, we are regaining 97 percent of the overspray powder and reuse it. As this is a dry system, the product is free of smells and other emissions.
The powder coating of wood substrates meets the highest demands and has been awarded with the rating eco-1. This award is synonymous for a very good qualification in Minergy-Eco buildings and for the compliance of high requirements as to environment and health, as our powder coating contains neither solvents nor biocides. Very well compatible furniture for your living room - absolutely reasonable and trend-setting from our point of view.
Powder-coating on MDF – the process
After the incoming goods inspection the woods is stored for at least 24 hours to get the optimum conditions for the coating process. State-of-the-art measureing and application technologies guarantee for a consistent and grooveless composition of layers. Our two-layer-system (foundation and finishing coat) of solvent-free powder paints and a permant process monitoring guarantee for the excelent Willisau quality and its sustainability.
Powder-based lacquers are solvent-free coating materials. They are made of resins, pigments and additives. The fine powder is electrostatically loaded and applied with air guns. After that, the coated substrats are running through infrared ovens, whereby the powder links and hardens. As soon as all parts have cooled down they can be further processed.
This surface resists everything
Sticky hands of children or gravy on the table. That is just no problem at all for our finely structured surfaces - that robust and resistent are they. But should there be remains of any kind at some stage, just wipe them away with a moist piece of cloth.
