Waterborne Coatings for Furniture

SpecialChem / PCI Magazine – Jan 16, 2008

The Italian-based ICA Group, located in Civitanova Marche, Italy, is a specialist in the manufacture of wood coatings. In collaboration with Giardina Officine Aeromeccaniche, it developed coating cycles that make it possible to achieve finishes that are easily comparable to those achieved using traditional, solventborne products, but with a drastic reduction in environmental impact. Resistance to change is a deeply rooted phenomenon within the reproduction furniture industry. The need to maintain high levels of transparency in the finish has constrained the industry, for many years, to use nothing but nitro-based coatings, which seemed to be the only type of coating able to guarantee the required standards of finish. These days, however, there are no longer any differences in quality between waterborne and solventborne coating cycles (this applies both to transparent finishes and to lacquered, glazed finishes). ICA has developed cutting-edge waterborne coating cycles that have what it takes to ensure that the final appearance of the coated item remains intact.
