New industrial high gloss coating system from Sherwin-Williams shows superb scratch resistance
To meet the increasing demand of industrial high gloss finishes for flat panel furniture, the R&D division at Sherwin-Williams has developed a new UV coating system with high scratch resistance for roller-coater application. The new system will result in a more durable surface while providing easier handling and less damage during the production process.
”As a coating solutions partner, we have to solve our clients everyday finishing challenges. One such challenge has been the request for a tougher and more efficient high gloss finish to protect delicate surfaces. Consequently, we decided to develop a new range of UV coatings that would reduce scratching to a minimum. Now – after six months of non-stop work – we can present a flexible and enhanced high gloss coating system with improvements on several levels”, says Martin Andersson, Product Manager at Sherwin-Williams.
Besides increased scratch resistance and toughness, the new system from Sherwin-Williams also shows excellent flow and clarity, as well as very good optical wetting and mirror effects. Additionally, since the coatings don’t require any polishing, this costly and time-consuming step in the production process can be eliminated. The system is also based on solvent free technology, resulting in a better working environment.
“With this new combination of added benefits and features, Sherwin-Williams has taken a big step in industrial high gloss finishes. Manufacturers of flat panel furniture will not only gain a beautiful and durable end result, but also a system that handles well and will facilitate a faster production capacity – with up to 1 million sqm per shift and year”, says Martin Andersson.
