Wood and furniture coatings Channel
Wood Coatings can be classified as a very specific segment within the paint industry covering domestic and office furniture, exterior and interior wood, parquet/flooring, wood stains, etc. Coatings used on wooden surfaces provide aesthetic aspects and surface protection that ensures the maximum durability of the natural product. Wood and furniture coatings can be exposed to wear and tear (outdoor environments, UV rays, mechanical abrasion, household chemicals attacks.)
