At the LIGNA wood coating trade show in Hannover in May our new one-component water-borne intumescent coating for wood, Fontefire WF, created a lot of attention and interest with customers. We are further introducing a new two-component glossy UV-resistant polyurethane lacquer Fontedur Clear Plus for customers that require gloss levels above 90.
In this issue of IMPULSE, we are delighted to tell you about some projects, recently won in the infrastructure area, for the protection of steel structures in Finland and Sweden and wooden houses in Finland.
The use of industrial coatings for wood and metal with less environmental impact is growing every year. On a global level, high solids are replacing conventional solvent-borne coatings and in some parts of the world such as Northern Europe there is increased focus on the use of low VOC water-borne coatings. Tikkurila, with its historically strong presence in Northern Europe, is at the forefront in the development of water-borne industrial coatings for metal protection.
Tikkurila industrial paint distribution network, developed years ago, is a very important part of our industrial paint business today. It is also one of the success factors in serving our industrial customers in an extensive geographical area.
