What is the best high gloss finish to replace toxic lacquers in a UV Finishing Line Machine? We need to fill in deep wood grain of Wenage.
Can your product be used in the UV line?
Can I use your products as a Sealer. Then normal UV treatment Sealer. Primer filler. Topcoat . 90 gloss coat.
We use wood with name Wenage , that has very wide grain and give us trouble with finishing top coat 90 Gloss surface.
The lacquer will sink in to material and the surface will be like ripples .
Will your product penetrate in to the fibres more efficient./
Tell me the lacquer of your products I need to seal the fibres.
If the UV line is set up for water based products then I don't see why NanoTech or Easy Safe 1k couldn't be used.
Finishing lines need calibration for each coating so I would check each specific machine being fitted and do a test run.

Wenage will glow beautifully with a good gloss but it's deep grain crevices can be problematic on a finishing line. To fill these in and get a nice even high gloss I would use Easy Safe 1k and try to get the first pass dry stage to flash off fast and seal. Then the second pass I would spray heavy, try to fill it in as much grain as possible and set the drying stage so that the thick areas can get enough time to have a "through dry". This is the key. Once that slower through dry setting is found, then the final coat will naturally fill in (if necessary, Easy Safe 1k may completely cover in 2 coats?) But to really get it even, we have to just give it however many coats the wood calls for.
I'm not sure I could ever do this on wenage with conventional lacquer technology since it flashes off too fast for the deeper through dry areas to set up and then lays down thin, revealing all the crevices. Technically Easy Safe 1k is a lacquer but it's a very different technology that replaces 2 part coatings so it's unusually forgiving in heavier applications. We have 2 part epoxy set ups that also fill in voids very well but these would be more expensive and the Finishing line set up can be difficult. See our Marine Grade Zero Voc Epoxy page if interested in something like that. All our epoxies are customized for the end user and we only sell them commercially.
The ripple effect also cuts gloss appearance, reflecting light away unevenly. The above process should help. Even if only two coats are done it may fill in enough to reflect more light out.
Easy Safe 1k is our hardest, strongest, most glossy product. It's a unique 1K technology that is used for high end projects. It's the best high gloss I've seen yet.
I'm not sure what the use is for this project or if it will justify the cost of using something like Easy Safe 1k in a production environment but this would be my first choice to test in the machine.
There is also the safety, environmental and plain old joy of working with these products that makes me prefer them to traditional lacquers.
I would try a sample and see if you think a test run is in order.
