Markets where Uralac® Ultra based powder coatings deliver competitive advantage for coaters, OEMs and designers
In the home, the kitchen is the room used most equally for working and socializing – and it’s also often one of the most expensive overall furnishing investments. This means that components need to meet high expectations of appearance, performance and durability. Uralac® Ultra delivers the best of all worlds in a beautiful, sustainable and cost-effective way. The technology provides long-lasting protection against even “wet heat” cooking humidity, as well as against chips, stains, spills and scratches. The seamless coating easily withstands detergent degeneration, and its high UV light resistance ensures colors stay true and attractive without yellowing.
The bathroom environment puts more demands on furniture than any other space in the home. High humidity and moisture in themselves damage most substrates they come into contact with. Meanwhile, the strongest detergent cleaners are used in bathrooms to ensure optimal hygiene. In such an environment, a piece of furniture is only as good as its coating. The solid, seamless layer that Uralac® Ultra technology puts around substrates seals them off completely from outside elements. And the resistance of the coating itself to humidity, moisture and chemicals ensures that this durability will last for many years. Sustainable – and cost-effective!
Children’s furniture must meet a variety of criteria. Little ones put everything in their mouths, especially when teething, so safety of the coating is paramount. It also has to be sturdy enough to stand up to the banging that playtime brings. And – ideally – the furniture will have appealing designs that stimulate the imagination. Uralac® Ultra cost-effectively ticks every box. The solvent-free coating formulation is as safe as it is sustainable, while providing sturdy protection against scratches and abrasion. It also provides a perfectly smooth and seamless finish on the most unique hollows, curves and carved details designers can imagine.
The breakthrough in low bake powder technology, which enables to coat wooden substrates, now further continues for outdoor applications. This makes it possible to make a significant leap forward to coat garden furniture, claddings, window frames, exterior doors etc. with a very long, maintenance free life time.
Uralac® Ultra is a perfect, cost-effective solution for office furniture in terms of comfort, practicality and durability. A range of gloss levels to choose from ensure effective, non-glare work surfaces that are highly resistant to stains – such as coffee –, as well as to the abrasion and scratches caused by intensive, daily use. The solid, seamless coating process provides equally good protection to the sides of cabinets, desks and chairs that often bump into each other. UV light resistance means colors that stay attractively true, and an office furniture park that is completely solvent-free is a plus on any Corporate Sustainability Report.
