SAND LACQUER: this finish is usually applied to wood fibreboard (MDF or melamine) and entails, after the panel has been worked in CNC centres, the application of a coat of white polyester lacquer (basecoat) and some coats of the latest generation of coloured, water-based lacquer containing small micro-sphere particles that create a pleasant silk-effect finish to the touch. Water-based lacquers offer the same resistance as solvent-based ones but have a much smaller impact on the environment, thus becoming much healthier to use both for factory workers and for end users.
BRUSHED GLOSS LACQUER: the type of base and the preparation of the panel before the finishing process are the same as those employed for the Sand lacquer finish. The finishing process is performed using robotized systems that guarantee the product is properly and evenly applied to the panel to avoid variations in colour and to ensure long-lasting stability. After having applied the gloss coloured lacquer the product is left to harden before being honed once again to remove any impurity or small imperfection present. The lacquer is then brushed using specific pastes and lots of manual work and the skill of specialised personnel.
