Flat-Line Finishing and UV Cure Coatings

Although the Europeans pioneered the use of polyesters for flat-line finishing, Seagrave’s extensive background in manufacturing high-tech polymers has , within the last twenty years, enabled us to become an industry leader in developing polyesters to fill wood and medium-densityfibreboard in this country. Now, thanks to Seagrave, you too can use this technology to counter the European thrust into the American marketplace and achieve the desirable European “wet look”. Seagrave’s experience in manufacturing our own polyesters and polyurethane’s also gives us the know-how to develop UV Cure polyesters that meet the most stringent requirements. As part of our commitment to being the leading manufacturer of UV paints and UV finishes for wood, we’re installing a complete flat-line UV Curing finishing line at our facility…not to sell wood products, but to help us fine tune every coating system before it reaches you. That kind of exhaustive developmental research is what keeps Seagrave on the leading edge of coating technology so we can continue to produce the finest quality coating products for you. For more information about any Seagrave product or process, call us today.

 

WHAT DO THE EXPERTS SAY ABOUT UV Cure Coatings?

Technically speaking, it’s just about perfect

Some have called it the best solution under the sun. Others more modestly claim it simply does just what they need it to do./ Regardless, more and more manufacturers, engineers, scientists and chemists are learning about the technical qualities of UV/EB and calling it a solution for the 21st century.

When specially formulated UV/EB chemistries are added to coatings, adhesives and inks, most products can be cured using UV or EB.

LOOK AT UV CURE COATINGS THIS WAY

Called “photopolymerization”, the ultra violet (UV) curing process is a photochemical reaction. Specially formulated inks, adhesives and coatings, mixed with a small percent of materials called photoinitiators, are exposed to a UV light source. Nearly instantly, they harden by cross-linking the liquid constituents. The results include decorative inks, tough clear coats, and adhesives with a variety of properties filling many different manufacturing needs. The results of UV cutting can be impressive; much less waste, lower energy consumption and higher productivity as well as reduced pollutant emissions.
