Drying and curing wood coatings with UV technology

Manufacturers of wood products use UV curing to increase production rates, improve product quality, and much more.

Drying UV paint on wood

Manufacturers of a wide variety of wood products such as prefinished flooring, moldings, panels, doors, cabinetry, particleboard, MDF, and pre-assembled furniture use UV-curable fillers, stains, sealers, and topcoats (both clear and pigmented). UV curing is a low temperature curing process that significantly reduces finishing process times while providing superior durability due to improved abrasion, chemical, and stain resistance. UV coatings are low VOC, waterborne or 100% solids and can be roll, curtain, or vacuum coated or spray applied to wood.

Your advantages with UV curing

  • Significant reduction or the complete elimination of VOCs
  • A higher quality finished product
  • Less waste
  • Less floor-space required for finishing
  • Immediate handling and packaging
  • Lower insurance premiums because of lower flammability risk

Applications

  • Prefinished hardwood flooring, both parquet and strips
