Solutions and services

Technical Assistance is  readily available  to work closely with producers, designers and architects to identify specific solutions for any  aesthetic and technical requirements.

Custom solutions and services:

A widespread network of Engineers constantly trained on the evolution of products and technologies, work closely with manufacturers, designers and architects to identify specific solutions to meet the aesthetic and technical needs.

They can suggest how to optimize the coating processes to achieve greater production efficiency at low environmental impact, with the utmost attention to the workers’ safety and health.

The products are designed and developed by more than 200 researchers in constant on-line contact, working with technologically advanced tools in IVM Group’s European Research and Development Laboratories for the future of wood coatings

The Application Laboratory, equipped with the most innovative and complete coating systems, checks and optimizes the performance of the formulated products.
