Technology

Today, any modern furniture production uses solvent-free, water-dilutable UV-curing coatings, so-called Hydro UV coatings, or 100% UV coating systems for roller application. 

Hydro UV coatings ideally combine the benefits of easy handling with optimal flow, rapid drying, and rapid sanding and stackability. They can be colorless as well as colored, sprayed or poured.  In our latest developments, almost 100% of the overspray can be recycled - and the surfaces can be hardened using energy-saving LED UV radiation technology. 

For two-dimensional workpieces, our colorless or pigmented 100% UV systems are the first choice. 

In addition, our Hydro 1K and 2K products are available for both industrial and commercial production. They comply with the Decopaint regulation (ChemVOC-FarbV), which prescribes the use of low-solvent paint systems for many applications in the interior wood sector.

Added value

  • Highest efficiency 
  • Best chemical resistance 
  • Excellent scratch and abrasion resistance
  • Extremely matte to extremely high gloss surfaces 
  • Environmental friendliness due to low VOC or even VOC-free coating systems

 

Coating system

Hydro 1K

Hydro 1K products are successfully used in the furniture and woodworking industry. Hydro 1K paint systems have been state of the art in the field of wood stair painting for many years. They are also used in the panel industry and in wood strip painting.

Klumpp Coatings Hydro 1K paints can be considered as an alternative to the solvent-based NC paints and offer the advantage in comparison that they are absolutely resistant to yellowing.

All Hydro 1K products from our product range comply with the Decopaint regulation (ChemVOC-FarbV), which prescribes the use of low-solvent coating systems for many applications in the interior wood sector.

  • Hydroplast PU is a universally applicable, light-fast coating varnish system. It is particularly noteworthy that Hydroplast PU complies with DIN 68861, 1B chemical resistance*. This property makes it very different from classic 1K NC paints (containing solvents). Due to its excellent abrasion properties, Klumpp Coatings Hydroplast PU is excellently suited for painting wooden stairs. Rolling and paintbrush settings are also available.
  • Hydroplast PU lacquers are available in all common colors. Special colors are also available according to suitable color scheme.
  • Hydroplast M is a universally applicable, light-fast coating varnish for the general furniture industry. It impresses with an extremely attractive price-performance ratio and almost achieves the property profile of the proven Hydroplast PU system.
  • White Hydro Spray Filler is an easy-to-apply, good filling and machine-sandable filler for insulated MDF and other applications in wood interiors. White Hydro Spray Filler can be over-painted with all Klumpp Hydro systems.

Hydro 2K

Hydro 2K products (PUR coatings) from Klumpp Coatings are in no way inferior in their property profile to the solvent-based 2K-PUR products. Whether chemical resistance, fullness, brilliance, resistance to yellowing - today, our water-dilutable variants also offer the all-round positive properties of PUR coating systems.

Only the shorter processing window of Hydro 2K systems distinguishes the two systems. Thus, the hardener to be added to the varnish prior to processing can easily be supplied by hand and mixed homogeneously in today's Hydro 2K products. However, the processing time of one working day or longer is not achieved. The use of Hydro 2K products therefore requires a certain basic understanding of the processing of water varnishes by the processor. This know-how is conveyed by Klumpp coatings through targeted customer training.

All Hydro 2K products from Klumpp Coatings comply with the Decopaint regulation (ChemVOC-FarbV), which prescribes the use of low-solvent coating systems for many applications in the interior wood sector.

  • Hydro 2K parquet seal is designed as a 2K base coat and topcoat lacquer and complies with the highest standards in the field of hand-crafted floor sealing. It is used wherever the highest demands in terms of chemical resistance and durability are required. The property profile is on a par with solvent-based 2K PUR coatings.
  • Hydro 2K staircase coating has excellent abrasion resistance, fullness and brilliance. Due to its good chemical cross-linking, it is very resistant to mop water and shows excellent chemical resistance compared to commercial household cleaners.
    The latter property also predestines the Hydro 2K staircase coating for use on handrails, which according to experience are exposed to increased chemical stress due to hand perspiration and hand creams.

Hydro UV

Technology

Today, any modern furniture production uses solvent-free coating systems, such as water-dilutable, UV-curable coatings, so-called Hydro UV coatings, or 100% UV coating systems for roller application.  Hydro UV coatings combine in an ideal way the benefits of easy handling with optimal flow properties, rapid drying, as well as fast sanding ability and stackability. They can be sprayed or poured colorless as well as colored.  In our latest developments, almost 100% of the overspray can be recycled and the surfaces can be hardened using energy-saving LED UV radiation technology.

White Hydro UV with the highest durability.

Due to the excellent resistance to household chemicals, especially against staining substances such as coffee, red wine or mustard, no additional, clear protective coating is necessary.

  • Chemically-curing Hydro UVs are based mostly on emulsions.  This variant offers a very good accentuation of the wood substrate, high filling strength and very good chemical resistance.  The disadvantage is that chemically-curing Hydro UVs show no physical surface drying, i.e. paint over-spray, which is not subject to UV curing and is not cured.  The paint environment is correspondingly viscous, and/or the paint shops on which chemically-curing Hydro UVs are processed.
  • Physically-curing Hydro UVs already show a physical surface drying without UV-curing which clearly minimizes the soiling of the paint environment.  For this reason, physically-curing Hydro UVs are also suitable for the spraying of objects with three-dimensional geometry for which 100% UV curing cannot always be guaranteed. 
    Physically-curing Hydro UVs usually show a weaker activation than the chemically-curing variant and do not reach their chemical resistance.

UV varnishes

UV varnishes for furniture are one of the highest quality coating systems, offering optimal scratch resistance and chemical resistance. In these areas they are far superior to even crosslinked 2K PUR varnishes.

With almost 100% solid content, UV varnishes for rolling are one of the most environmentally friendly coating systems, as no volatile components are released into the atmosphere, either during processing or from the hardened coating.

UV varnishes for furniture are most commonly applied by rolling. This limits their use to one-dimensional, flat objects.

 

  • UV sealers for furniture give excellent, universal adhesive properties on diverse types of wood and can easily be applied with normal simple rollers. As soon as the UV has hardened they polish well and can be coated with all UV topcoats in our range. If the intermediate grinding is carried out very carefully, UV coated surfaces can immediately be coated with water or solvent based Klumpp Coatings colour varnishes.
  • UV coating layers for furniture are ideal for professional coating finishes. They are universally applicable and function both as a primer and top coat. So you don’t have to change varnishes and spend time on cleaning.
  • UV top coats for furniture are the ideal finish for UV primed and sanded furniture surfaces. They offer optimal scratch resistance and chemical resistance. The formulation of Klumpp Coatings UV top coats has been designed to give excellent spreading properties. This minimises the formation of rolling marks, so that the appearance and quality of the surface look like a spray finish.
  • UV vacuum coatings are vacuum coating systems for coating mouldings, profile elements and other parts whose geometry suit the use of vacuum. Klumpp Coatings UV vacuum coatings are solvent-free.  They can be UV hardened immediately after application and the workpieces can be further processed.
