Recycled door coated with plant-based resin
Weekamp Deuren’s goal is to work with 100% green or sustainable wood and was interested in finding a coating solution that would support a more sustainable finish.
Resulting from a collaboration between PPG Wood Finishes, Weekamp and DSM, in March Weekamp revealed a new 100% recycled exterior door concept which features an acrylic plant-based coating to protect it from the elements. Currently waterborne paint is mainly used to protect exterior doors and these are already a big improvement compared to the solvent-based coatings previously used. However, the binders of these waterborne paints still contain fossil-based raw materials. DSM's Decovery® is a new technology that replaces the fossil-based binder components of a coating for a large part with renewable materials while maintaining the quality and performance.
