Our Story

We are now prototyping manufacturing equipment compatible with our technology.

Liquid paint is the dominant technology – and until recently was the only alternative. In the last 50 years though, another technology emerged: powder coat.

The use of powder coating offers a range of advantages over liquid paint and has become the preferred choice whenever possible.

Powder coating however has inherent limitations due to its nature. It works by spraying the powder to electric charged surface, therefore requires such surface to be conductive. It has therefore for a long time been limited to metal support. Recently certain technologies have allowed the usage of powder coating on certain substrates of wood.

These technologies (UV, Low Temperature Thermo) however only work with medium density fibreboards (MDF) and cannot be applied to natural wood, plywood or particle board.

Our technology (“UPC”) has now been developed which is not subject to these limitations and offers additional advantages.

Our Technology

We believe our technologie will be the next standard for this 105 billions USD per year field

Environment Friendly

Contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or solvents, which also reduces risks for plant operators

Clean tech

Waste is minimal, and can be disposed of easily, removing the need for costly pollution control and waste management

Durable

Finished products are protected from chips, stains, spills, and scratches

Resistant

Resistance to impact, abrasion, heat, extreme weather and fading from sunlight

Design freedom

Powder coating can accommodate complex shapes, while other surfacing techniques which rely for example on edge-banding or laminate cannot.

Cost effective

Potential savings of 2/3rd compared to liquid paint application – Up to 75% cost saving
