Keeping white bright

664336958

White coated furniture is increasingly popular, especially in living and kitchen areas. However, in everyday life small mishaps can happen quickly: a spilled coffee, a glass of red wine, or a carelessly thrown key can leave irreversible traces on bright surfaces.

At this year’s European Coatings Show (ECS) in Nuremberg, we will launch a bundle of new, tailor-made technologies to make water-based coatings for white pigmented coatings more durable. With the new products Joncryl® 9500 and 9502 and Laromer® UA 9135 Aqua, we support you with superior solutions to protect white water-based furniture coatings from stains and scratches.

Due to the new, physically drying resins – the recently launched Joncryl® 9500 and 9502 – furniture coatings end up with high levels of chemical resistance against aqueous stains even after 16 hours of exposure (according to DIN 68861-1B). They are especially perfect for do-it-yourself and industrial applications and suitable for industrial 1K systems. Furthermore, Dispex® Ultra PX 4575, a dispersing agent for water-based systems, supports excellent chemical resistance and leads to greatly improved storage stability and anti-sedimentation behavior.

Laromer® UA 9135 Aqua is our first water-based binder specifically designed for white pigmented topcoats. This high-performance, radiation-curable dispersion is suitable for wood, wood products, paper, and plastics such as PVC. The special nature of the dispersion ensures the highest chemical resistance in white pigmented coatings. This prevents color-intense aqueous substances such as red wine and coffee from penetrating the film and leaving stains in the coating.
Therefore, Laromer® offers furniture manufacturers high production reliability.
