New Clear Waterborne Self-Sealer AF 63**/00 by Sayerlack: The Long Lasting Beauty of Wood Flooring
Pianoro, Italy, May 10, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Wood is a material that lends itself to innovation in aesthetic design. Thanks to new technologies and new treatments, it’s now possible to lay wood flooring in every room of the house. While wooden flooring can evoke a variety of moods, parquet is always in style, thanks to the warmth of the wood and because its many colours and different shades can add character to both traditional and contemporary environments.
An ideal parquet must combine extraordinary strength, practicality and beauty. In case it is subject to treading, frequent falls of heavy objects or pets strolling around, it's better to choose a highly resistant wood flooring. Hardness and stability are fundamental requirements of the wood. While hardwoods are more difficult to scratch, the finish on the wood could look equally marked, if it is not elastic and highly resistant, to protect the floor from any mechanical stress or chemical spills.
Sayerlack, pushed by the spirit of innovation that has always characterised it and with long experience in the field of parquet and furniture, introduces new waterborne clear self-sealer AF 63**/00. This innovative product is the latest release from Sayerlack’s research and development team that addresses the need for advanced technology that builds upon the nature of wood, enhancing its beauty and quality.
The new waterborne self-sealer is a solvent-free, one component, acrylic polyurethane, non yellowing product free of hazardous solvents. Thanks to its chemical characteristics it shows excellent elasticity and surface hardness that confers high wear resistance.
The product is also highly versatile, applicable by brush, roller and spray, to always ensure an excellent aesthetic result thanks to the excellent deaerating, levelling and ease of retouch. An additional benefit is the possibility to apply AF 63**/00 directly on the wood, even on wood species with high tannin content which can bleed through, without pretreating the surface with a sealer.
As per the new norm UNI 11622-1:2016 on surface protective treatments, AF 63**/00 is suitable for use in residential environments. In particular the chemical resistance, low dirt retention, abrasion and scratch resistance are excellent.
Alessandro Pirotta, managing director for Sayerlack, said, “A hardwood floor is experienced in the moment, as we enjoy the quality of the finish and the warmth of the wood, and over time, with the hardness, the elasticity and the outstanding wear resistance helping the warmth and quality endure. This new waterborne self-sealer is prepared to stand up to the demands placed on wood floors both today and for years to come.”
