Reducing downtime significantly with site applied UV curing technology for flooring applications

Being a pioneer in research on UV-curing coating raw materials for industrial applications, we have now developed a technology that transfers the benefits of quality and speed of industrial UV-curing floor coatings to on-site applications. The coating is completely dry and sandable immediately after curing with a portable UV-lamp, which allows to apply up to three to four coating layers in just one day. After the last top coat is applied and cured the floor can be put back to service without any further downtime.

The most important benefits in a nutshell:
    • Coating and "Back-to-service" of the flooring in record time, immediately after onsite UV-curing
    • Solvent-free
    • Environmentally friendly and low-emission coating formulations
    • Conforms with the German regulation on indoor emissions of construction products: AgBB
    • Highest quality polyurethane chemistry, water-based or 100% solid systems
    • Easy and safe handling (1-component technology)
    • Time and cost advantages due to a fast renovation process and short downtimes
    • Versatile application options (e.g. wood, plastics, polyurethane, epoxy, concrete substrates)
    • Maximum freedom to formulate

Our experts can provide details on coatings manufacturers and equipment companies that are familiar with this technology. Examples: For mobile UV-lamps you may get in touch with Decorad or Sadechaf. For addresses of applicators we recommend to contact the coatings manufacturers.
