Furniture coatings: trends and challenges

There are several challenges in coating wooden substrates. As wood is a natural material, many different compositions and origins exist. Driven by legislation and furniture manufacturers, thereduction of the VOC level is another major issue. Dr. Rolf Gertzmann of Bayer MaterialScience, BU Coatings, Adhesives and Specialties, summarises current trends and challenges.

Effects on cathodic delamination investigated

Cathodic delamination is one of the major modes of failure for organic coatings immersed in seawater and refers to the weakening or loss of adhesion between the coating and the substrate. In a newwork, the effects of various parameters on this failure mode have been investigated.
