Environmentally-friendly, natural-looking and low emission values

Environmentally-friendly, natural look, low emission values, low-VOC, Deco-Paint-compliant that can be used universally for many application areas in the industrial wood painting sector - these are attributes that accurately describe Remmers Industrielacke high-quality hydro-lacquers.

With respect to the implementation of the European VOC Directive, many companies in the industrial wood painting sector face the challenge of continuously rethinking coating systems, procedures & processes.

The most important features of our hydro-lacquers:

  • Very low solvent level
  • Low emission values (TA Air-compliant systems)
  • Low-VOC (Deco-Paint-compliant systems)
  • Universal application areas

Product portfolio

1K-water based varnishes can be used universally and are fast drying.

2K-water based varnishes not only meet strict standards with respect to chemical and mechanical resistance, like hydro-UV-lacquers that also stand out thanks to fast drying times and therefore very short processes. Our portfolio includes colourless and coloured lacquers, from dull to high-gloss - to meet customer specifications.

2K-hydro-film lacquers

  • acid hardening
  • matt to glossy
  • low_in_formaldehyde

The film lacquers by Remmers Industrielacke are eco-efficient, specially developed watery coating systems for the coating on extremely fast painting systems. They are suitable for subsequently impregnated and pre-impregnated paper films. The coated papers are used for furniture in living rooms and bedrooms, e.g. shelves or wardrobes.

The environmentally-friendly, water-thinnable film lacquers by Remmers Industrielacke stand out thanks to their good resistance to scratching, high resistance to normal household agents and a high level of solids.

The use of these special components means a very low formaldehyde emission from the hardened lacquer coat (E1).

Properties of hydro-lacquers

Hydro lacquers and/or water-based lacquers stand out thanks to the following properties:

They have a very low-solvent content and are therefore highly environmentally-friendly, have low emission values (TA Air-compliant systems), are low-VOC (Deco-Paint-compliant systems) and are still suitable for universal application areas.

Special aspects of hydro-lacquers

  • Compared to solvent lacquers, more drying energy is required for hydro-lacquers.
  • Forced air drying of any kind is possible.
  • Defined drying parameters are required for product safety.
  • In addition to the air temperature, humidity and air velocity, the substrate temperature and wood moisture also play an important role
  • The lacquer and substrate temperature should not be < 15 °C (risk: wetting and drying problems)

Important: The processing guidelines for each lacquer must be observed strictly. The respective technical code of practice for the lacquer contains information about the application quantities per m2, drying times and temperatures of lacquer and the environment.
