Getting a handle on cool cabinet finishes

Powder coating for cupboard and cabinet finishes is changing for the better with Uralac® Ultra. This advanced binding technology for MDF, plywood and engineered wood gives coating specialists a unique combination of price and process efficiency unlike any other coating technologies.  
 
You can apply Uralac® Ultra in a single coat and any color – including clear coats – to complex and intricate designs, with no drying time needed. You can also use it as a primer with a liquid topcoat, significantly reducing processing time and labor cost. 
 
What is more, its lower curing temperature of 120-130°C opens up a world of possibilities in the choice of materials you can use for cupboards, veneer wardrobes and most other domestic cabinets.

"We're always looking for ways to reduce costs without impacting quality. Fortunately, these powder coatings deliver on both."

Safe and solvent-free furniture? It is child's play

We realize that safety will always be your number one priority for children's furniture – and you can rest assured it is ours too. Which is why, at Covestro, we have created a more sustainable binding technology for powder-coated MDF that is formulated to be free of solvents and VOCs while complying with the stringent requirements of the major brands we serve. Why? Because we care.  
 
Not only does Uralac® Ultra protect the little ones, it safeguards your profitability thanks to a fast and efficient singe-coating process with no drying time that boosts productivity and enables the most intricate shapes and contours – in any color. And as you would expect, powder coatings made with Uralac® Ultra deliver the toughness and durability so essential for playtime.

Fabulous finishes for kitchen and bathroom

We all know that when it comes to humid kitchen and bathroom environments a piece of furniture or architecture is only as good as its protective coating: from large surface areas in the bathroom which are exposed to sunlight, to dishwasher cabinets that get steamed every day.  
 
Traditionally, powder-coated MDF was not a practical solution for this challenging environment. Enter Uralac® Ultra – which enables an advanced, seamless powder coating for the bathroom and kitchen that is proven to create water-resistant surfaces that withstand mold, mildew, steam and condensation. It resists detergents and chemicals while retaining color and sharpness over time, with no yellowing or peeling – and no delamination and board swelling. 
 
This is achieved via a fast and efficient one-step-coating system for engineered wood that enables great sealing and the most intricate bathroom paint finishes along with imaginative new kitchen furniture designs. Alternatively, you can use Uralac® Ultra primer with a liquid topcoat for a more efficient two-layer finish. Whatever suits you, and your customers.

"We believe that powder coating technology has reached the level of sophistication where we want to use it."

常见问题解答

How do we spray powder on standard 'non-conductive' MDF?

For application of the powder, moisture within the MDF is used for conductivity. A moisture content of 4-8% of total weight is sufficient to attract the powder.

Do we require special MDF for powder coating?

No special MDF is needed for powder coating – although there are differences between available qualities and types.  

We advise evaluating the type of MDF you intend to use before making your products.  

Further, we recommend a conditioned storage area to control the MDF's moisture content.

Is the oven I use for powder coating metal suitable for curing MDF too?

Most conventional curing ovens are convection ovens. Best results for MDF are reached with infrared radiation (IR) ovens.  

With IR ovens, the MDF's surface can be heated quickly to cure the powder coating, while its core stays relatively cool.  

With convection ovens, temperatures are often too high, or the MDF's core heats up too much because of the longer period needed to reach curing temperatures.
