UV-Powder coating of MDF-furniture
Powder coating and the benefits associated with this method of finishing have been profitably utilised for decades. The technology involved and the powder used have been developed and refined to the point where, today, more or less any product can be powder-coated. A new technology using UV-powder, IR/UV-ovens, modern powder application and powder recovering systems makes it now possible to powder coat heat sensitive material such as in this case MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard).
Powder coating offers a number of advantages:
The benefits of powder coating in general can be summarised as follows:
Additional advantages with UV-curable powders:
The UV technology also offers a number of specific advantages compared to the thermo-curing system:
In July 1999, the first complete series powder-coating line in the world based on the UV concept was delivered, and by the end of August the production line was up and running.
Stilexo manufactures TV tables and other components for the furniture industry. The UV powder method has improved the quality of the products and produces at a lower cost compared to previous methods using PVC and melamine laminate or wet paint. There is also a greater scope for modifying and improving the design of the product than with laminated products.
