Dry-lacquer surfaces: economical, sustainable, and modern furniture design
Furniture today is much more than just home furnishings. It is trendy and modern, and - like clothing - an expression of personal style and taste. At least once a year, experts present their developments and designs on the catwalks of the furniture scene. Give your products a modern and creative finish with KURZ decoration effects right off the roll. This provides you with exciting alternatives to classic woodworking such as staining, sanding, and painting. In just one work step, a wide variety of surfaces are given a new, modern design, regardless of whether they are strips, profiles, V-joints, injection-molded plastic parts, or even aluminum. The rollers can be changed in just a few easy steps. And to top it off, state-of-the-art technology lets you backlight your decor and play with endless design effects, like matt or high gloss. Stand out with creative, innovative, and economical solutions. Create fascinating accents with light or strong colors. Decorate your surfaces quickly and accurately, without drying or after-treatment, with significantly fewer rejects than with conventional processes. Our huge choice of decors and rapid design changes keep your production flexible and up to date whilst keeping your stock levels low. As a result, you can produce significantly more economically and sustainably.
TOUCHWOOD®: brings wood to almost all surfaces
TOUCHWOOD® is a dry lacquer film that is applied to sharp contours. No more subsequent trimming, milling, or cutting. If you would like to create special highlights, you can add additional light effects to the surfaces. Let fronts float and give rooms a very special ambience with backlighting. Offer your customers an unparalleled variety. The designs can be changed in just a few easy steps.
Laminate floors that look like real wood. Finish melamine kitchen fronts, make aluminum panels look like real wood in areas where wood is prohibited for fire protection reasons: with TOUCHWOOD®, there are almost no limits when it comes to finishing wood-effect surfaces. Even color deviations, which can arise due to different color bases or production techniques, can be compensated for dry lacquer. What’s more, there is a solution for particularly stressed surfaces that offers significantly higher abrasion and scratch resistance: TOUCHWOOD® Superior.
TOUCHCLEAR: seals real wood in a single operation
Keen to move away from classic staining, patinating, and varnishing? Then TOUCHCLEAR is your solution. With this dry lacquer, you no longer need high-temperature dryers, paint shops, or intermediate sanding and cleaning systems. Paint overspray protection is also no longer necessary. TOUCHCLEAR protects your real-wood or veneer surface, be it large areas, edges, or profiles. The transparent or semi-transparent wood lacquer is applied to the surface in a single operation. The grain of the wood is emphasized, and natural color variations can be compensated for. You can individually choose the shading of the varnish.
TOUCHWOOD® lacquers: hygienic, environmentally friendly, efficient
Areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, and children's rooms are usually associated with increased hygiene requirements. TOUCHWOOD® can be equipped with special antibacterial properties. As a matter of course, this also applies to floor, wall, and ceiling profiles. The result is a surface that offers consumers with demanding hygiene requirements real added value. Using TOUCHWOOD® as a primer saves material, cost, and time by eliminating operations such as filling and grinding. In addition, you are protecting the environment, as the lacquers are solvent free.
LED decoration: Sustainable through and through
For LED spotlights, KURZ relies on plastic instead of metal. This is not only a more sustainable choice, but compared to metal, plastic production generates fewer pollutants. Shorter production and delivery times have a positive effect on your budget. That’s because you save several work steps and can implement even complex geometries in one step. The decoration process is directly integrated into the production of LED spotlights. And there’s another reason why you should choose plastic decorations from KURZ: aluminum is three times as heavy as plastic. With our film laminating process, you can realize deceptively real metallic effects. Your products will be lighter, and your transport and freight costs will decrease - just like CO2 emissions during transport.
