Waterborne coatings are globally accepted as environmentally friendly technology. To compete with solventborne coatings, the optimal selection of additives and binders is crucial.
Solventborne wood coatings are very established and well developed technologies. The requirement for VOC reduction, however, is a serious challenge. Learn more about how we address this issue.
UV-curable coatings have many advantages: They are environmentally friendly, nearly universally applicable, and they have a very fast application process. The challenge is to expand their fields of applications.
