Durability and aesthetic are both equally important criterion when it comes to the coating of interior and exterior furniture. Poly-Poxy has spent decades in the research and development of waterborne products that could produce similar qualities as to those achieved with solvent-based products, having the same finishing appearance, mechanical strength and chemical resistance properties.

Demand of the eco-friendly waterborne products has increased in recent as a result of the global requirement to reduce emission of volatile organic solvents, minimizing the impact to the environment and health of people who are exposed to the coating or coated furniture.

UV-curable coatings have been proven to provide advantages in terms of reducing production speed and line length, rejection rates, having unlimited coating pot life and improving chemical and physical properties. UV coating is cured through chemical cross-linking of photo-initiators upon absorption of ultra violet energy emitted by UV- rays, creating strong chemical bonds for the coating.

The waterborne UV curable coating has the ability to create high gloss level finishes and enables good viscosity control allowing better flow, leveling and penetration in comparison to the solvent-based UV curable coating. The application of this coating poses only minimal or no volatile organic content (VOCs)/ hazardous air pollutant (HAPs) hazard towards the production environment. However, the waterborne coating has a lower build finishing due to lower solid content in which indirectly impacts the drying time prior to the curing of waterborne UV coating.

Polyurethane coatings (PUD) are a two-pack system that is formed from the chemical reactions of the base part and hardener. polyurethane coatings possess quick drying properties, great elasticity, excellent bonding and UV stability making it very durable and weather resistant, thus suitable for coating various kinds of material surfaces – wood, metal, glass. They are one of the most commonly used coatings system in the coating industry and is suitable for the application on furniture and fixtures. Our coatings are extended to cater to all requirements to create excellent aesthetic finishes that are designed with superior strength to withstand daily use.
Epoxy coatings are typically a two part component in which are mixed prior to application, one part being the epoxy resin and the other the hardener. Both these components are mixed to enable cross-linking to form the coating. The selection and combination of the epoxy component and the hardener component is crucial in determining the final characteristics and suitability of the epoxy coating for a given environment. If catalyzed and applied properly, the coating is known to create excellent hardness and chemical resistance. At Poly-Poxy Coatings we provide an extensive range of epoxy coatings, pairing up the components compatibly to ensure that the desirable finishing will be achieved according to our customers’ requirements.
Waxes can be made from synthetic natural or raw materials. They are easy-to-use, fast drying and are commonly used to refurbish and restore the aesthetic of the applied product. These products can easily be cured through air drying and is a one component coating that does not require hardeners. Waxes depending on its formulation, create a layer on the surface to provide added protection for the product.
Acrylics coatings having thermoplastic characteristics are noted to have good light fastness, good hardness, flexibility, quick drying properties, resistance to yellowing and excellent clarity. They are commonly used for finishing that requires high transparency to enhance the aesthetic of the products. These easy-to-use coatings can be applied on an extensive range of surfaces ranging from wood, glass, metal to plastic through air or oven drying. Our acrylic coatings are available in a comprehensive variety, ranging from transparent and pigmented, matt and gloss acrylic coatings.
Thinner are used to adjust the viscosity of the coating to optimize and facilitate the application of the coating. They are also effective as a clean-up solution for your coating equipment. Hardeners are required for two-component (2K) and three-component (3K) products in which they are crucial for the reaction with the binders in the coatings. Our hardeners are specially selected to complement the coatings to achieve customers desired finishing.
