Driving forward with powder coatings 

“Over the past few decades, Vepa has really stood out thanks to our drive to deliver sustainable value through our products,” says Gertjan de Kam, Design & Development Manager, Vepa. “In recent times, the furniture market has become increasingly competitive with more imports from abroad, for example.”  “Against this backdrop, our partnership with DSM came about at the right time. Like many other furniture manufacturers and designers across the world, we’ve looked to leverage powder coating technology to gain a competitive advantage, since this technology has been shown to improve the operational efficiency of coating application, the total environmental impact of the manufacturing process, and the aesthetic qualities of the final product. In short, powder coating technology has allowed us to unlock extra value.” 

The right partnership for the right time

Like many other consumer-oriented markets, furniture design and manufacture is undergoing significant change, with people increasingly concerned by the carbon footprint and durability of the products they buy and use. “Over the past few decades, Vepa has really stood out thanks to our drive to deliver sustainable value through our products,” says Gertjan de Kam, Design & Development Manager, Vepa. “In recent times, the furniture market has become increasingly competitive with more imports from abroad, for example.” 

Powder coatings for wood and MDF substrates

Powder coating technology offers several important advantages to furniture manufacturers. “Above all, this technology enables greater design freedom,” says Gertjan. “As these coatings can even be applied on unusual shapes, edges, hollows and contours, which allows imaginative new substrate designs and semi-assemblies that could not easily be finished with liquid coatings, the range of design possibilities is much greater.” 

A sustainable solution

What’s more, powder coating technology has also enabled Vepa to meet the increasing demand for furniture products that are ecofriendly and do not negatively impact the environment. “DSM’s proprietary technology has really driven the sustainability value of powder coatings,” says Gertjan. “In particular, our carbon footprint has been reduced, as these powder coatings integrate a low-temperature bake and a no-water process.”
