Key benefits of powder coating

With its smooth surface ideal for painting and attractive price point versus plywood, it’s no surprise that demand for MDF and similar engineered woods is growing. Finishing for MDF board and panels has traditionally involved liquid paint because of the extreme 150-plus degree Celsius temperatures needed to cure powder coatings and melt them onto the surface. In turn this extreme heat load made the board more likely to crack, bubble and pop as the material’s fibres are warped and raised up in the heat. But now, thanks to advanced technologies like Uralac® Ultra, powder coating really is the best way to finish paint, both for brands and coating specialists alike.   Why? Because the key ingredient - the resin that binds the paint together – enables a curing temperature as low as 120 degrees Celsius. This in turn opens up a whole new world of engineered wood possibilities by enabling bold and beautiful new designs (in furniture, for example) that delight consumers. It’s MDF time…

Design freedom

Expand your horizons

How can brands find imaginative ways to create a competitive advantage in the race to develop innovative new products? One way is to swap liquid-coated MDF for a powder coated solution based on Uralac® Ultra. This advanced binder made from unsaturated polyester enables powder coatings to be produced up to 10 times faster than waterborne equivalents with the most complex designs, including hollows, contours and edges (unlike traditional UV cured coatings). All this with a solid, seamless finish produced via a unique single-layer coating process that also requires just one application of sanding and is cured at an all-time low temperature. In fact, Uralac® Ultra not only saves time and money, it helps save the planet with a carbon footprint five times lower than traditional coating systems. And it’s safe, solvent-free and minus harmful VOCs.

Uralac® Ultra is an advanced binding technology that takes durable coatings and protective finishes to a new level in powder. Made from super-strong Polyester-Urethane binder, this hard resin resists extreme wear and tear like scratches, abrasion and UV, with no yellowing or peeling: and all with extreme flexibility. But don’t just take our word for it. Uralac® Ultra has passed a range of industry tests, including NEN-EN 12720, Blue Wool Scale and hinge hole (Ledro test) benchmarking.

Economical

Start reducing your costs today

Powder coating systems with Uralac® Ultra at their heart can reduce your production costs by up to 45% compared to liquid coatings. Thanks to low curing temperatures and a unique single-layer coating process the product requires less water, energy and time to produce; and there’s less waste with all powder overspray virtually 100% recyclable. And with no sanding required between the application of layers you generate yet more savings in time and materials. The result? Our customers have produced their coatings up to 10 times faster using Uralac® Ultra -based systems compared to liquid paint. In fact, Uralac® Ultra even saves you money in storage and transportation thanks to its high chemical resistance and overall robustness compared to conventional coating solutions. So why not jump aboard?
