Solvent-based lacquers

Solvent-based materials for industrial painting of wood

For decades, Remmers Industrielacke has supplied solvent-based materials for industrial painting of wood - from very fast-drying lacquers for normal loads through to the high-quality DD lacquer range.

The basis of this lacquer series is polyurethane (aka: PUR). These plastics play an important role in the field of coating agents because there is no other binding agent class with such a comprehensive formulation diversity.

The use of polyurethane allows us to specifically adapt the range of properties of the coatings: not only the latest design trends, but also fulfilment of higher surface durability requirements.

This is why we find PUR lacquers as made-to-measure solutions in almost all areas of modern surface protection - especially where absolute chemical and mechanical resistance or painting of plastic items is required.

The most important features of our solvent-based lacquers:

  • Excellent light resistance / chemical resistance
  • Fast drying, high resistance to impacts and abrasion resistances
  • Various application types (curtain coating and rolling)
  • Excellent blocking against substances in the wood

Product portfolio

Suitable types from the Remmers Industrielacke product range are available for all application areas.

1K solvent-based lacquers

  • 1K-Fine Finish Primers
  • 1K-filling lacquers 1K-brighteners
  • 1K-top lacquer coats
  • 1K-universal lacquers
  • 1K-opaque lacquers

2K solvent-based lacquers

  • Base lacquers:
    • 2K-Fine Finish Primers
    • 2K-filling lacquers
    • 2K-brighteners

The primers are applied on stains or directly onto the wood. They fill and wet the subsurface, dry quickly and are easy to sand.

  • Lacquers in all degrees of gloss:
    • 2K-multi-layer lacquers
    • 2K-high gloss finishes
    • 2K-wax effect lacquers
    • 2K-wet-on-wet systems (NIN systems)
  • Colour lacquers:
    • 2K-fillers, pigmented
    • 2K-opaque lacquers2K-wet-on-wet systems (NIN systems)
    • 2K-metal effect lacquers
    • 2K-glass lacquers
    • 2K-Texture varnishes

Creative coloured design in the furniture and interior decorating sectors is growing in importance. Modern designs and new trends also impact on the appearance of the furniture.

RAL colours, NCS colours including individually mixed colours are available.

  • Special products:
    • 2K-EL-lacquers (electrostatic lacquers)
    • 2K-hot-spray lacquer
      Thinners, delayers and additives

Areas of application

  • High-quality kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom furniture
  • Very durable surfaces
  • Doors and panel painting
  • Parquet and stair painting
  • Office and laboratory furniture
  • Glass painting

Properties of solvent-based lacquers

  • Fast drying
  • Long pot lives in general
  • Excellent light resistance (if light-fast hardeners are used)
  • High chemical resistance (lacquers with resistance levels according to DIN 68861 Part 1B)
  • High resistance to impacts and abrasion
  • Easy handling and processing with conventional application devices
  • Universal lacquers for all application types, e.g. painting, curtain coating and rolling
  • Excellent blocking against substances in the wood
  • Low-odour lacquers as VOCs

Special aspects of solvent-based lacquers

Appropriately qualified personnel is the basis for successful processing of solvent-based lacquers. Processing is usually non-problematic. These lacquers can be used by professionals or in industrial environments using conventional application devices.Cleanliness in the paint shop and cleanliness of the application devices is essential for achieving good paint results.

Solvent-based lacquers react to temperatures and humidity, and lead to malfunctions during drying and chemical reactivity. This impacts on the level of resistance, adhesion and elasticity of the lacquers.

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