Acrylic coatings are characterized by excellent mechanical and chemical resistance and ease of application. Therefore, acrylic coatings are suitable for both artisanal and industrial cycles on various types of products. They are especially recommended for clear or dyed open-pore cycles to achieve natural effect on wood or unfinished wood effect, a popular aesthetic trend in contemporary decor and design.
Acrylic base and top coats offer maximum resistance to yellowing on light-colored or bleached woods.
IVM research and development labs, which have long been committed to the study of nanotechnology applications in the wood coating sector, have developed Nano-C, a specific line of nanotechnology products for various industrial applications. Nanotechnology provides levels of scratch and abrasion resistance that are difficult to obtain with traditional technologies, while at the same time, leaving the aesthetic quality of top coats unaltered.
