UV Curable Coatings

The Morrells range of ultra-violet cure coatings offers an extensive portfolio of technically advanced products for modern mass production applications. Ideal for use on furniture, including kitchens and bathrooms, flooring materials (cork tiles, woodblock and parquet), doors, architraves and picture frames. Systems based on Morrells UV products will meet the requirements of FIRA Standard 6250 for horizontal surfaces and Severe Use.

The majority of Morrells UV products contain no solvents, hence no emissions. Furthermore, due to the speed of cure, energy requirements are lower than those of conventional lacquers. Although applied at considerably lower coatings weights than conventional lacquers, Morrells UV products create durable coatings with excellent chemical and physical resistance properties. They are available in a variety of sheen levels from Matt to High Gloss.

As the majority are solvent free, the lacquers can be cured immediately after application. Curing is virtually an instantaneous process, requiring a second or less of UV radiation to achieve a 100% cured film. Once cured coated components can be stacked and packed straight off the production line.

The most common method of application is by rollercoater, either conventional or grooved Opti/Lazer rollercoater, which is used for flat panel stock such as flush doors, office, kitchen and bathroom furniture.

Vacuum coaters are increasingly used to apply UV products to a wide variety of mouldings and extrusions. The Morrells range of waterborne UV lacquers are ideally suited to application by auto spraying, again this is used for flat stock panels, but additionally is able to cope with profiles, raised & fielded panels etc.

Strong contacts with major UV equipment manufacturers allows Morrells UV team to work in conjunction with customers and manufacturers to ensure that the products, application and curing systems fully meet their specific requirements. This commitment begins with the initial planning through to commissioning of plant, training of operatives and continues with on-going support and back-up.
