Wood Coating

Wood is probably the most versatile and functional material in the world and forms that basis of so many items we use in our everyday lives. This gives rise for the need to coat, paint and stain wood to keep it looking good and working well. How to do this depends heavily on what the wood is used for, where it is used and how often. Polyurethane coating is perfect for bringing out the true colour of woods and can be used where heat occurs so your kitchen table for example. Polyester coating is great for getting a high polished mirror finish so works well on decorative items. Waterborne coatings can be also being used where a non -flammable product is required. Wood coatings can be provided in many different guises for internal and external use. We have access to an extremely wide range of products from wood stains, polyurethane lacquers to polyester coatings and waterborne products. Wood come in many different forms, from cellulose to oil based, solvent based to water based.


1. Polyurethane wood coating can be Oil based or Water based. Water based polyurethane has low odour and low toxicity and goes on clear. It dries faster than oil based polyurethane but does not handle heat or chemicals. It is great on anything that will not be exposed to extremes such as desks, bookcases and picture frames. Oil based polyurethane is more durable than water based especially where heat is concerned, so is a great choice for a kitchen table for example. It also brings out the richness in the wood as it adds a slight colour tone.


2. Polyester base coats can be white or clear and coatings can be wax or wax free and styrene free. Polyester base coat is great for achieving a fast full closed pore finish. This can be over coated with PUR or Acrylics to achieve either a gloss, satin or matt finish. Polyesters can be polished to a mirror finish and is an ideal wood coating for car or boat interiors, pianos and furniture.


3. Waterborne products are the perfect choice where it is not practical to use traditional solvent-borne wood coating products. The benefits of Waterborne finishes include VOC compliance, they are non-flammable and are environmentally friendly.
