Orgasol® additives for wood floor coatings

Orgasol® powders provides long-term scratch and abrasion resistance which improves durability, and enhances the appearance of a wood floor.

From natural hardwood to engineered wood, the wood flooring market is growing. Consumers are mainly drawn to the warm and inviting look of wood floorings, as well as to its sustainability.

 

Nevertheless, the wood flooring market has to deal with competitors like laminate flooring that have grown increasingly aggressive in terms of price and product offering.

 

To remain competitive on global flooring market, wood flooring manufacturers consider two main areas of product development:

  • capitalizing on the warm and inviting finish of wood flooring
  • improving the durability of wood flooring, to achieve performance equal to laminate flooring

 

Improving wood flooring durability is a main concern, especially among contractors, who require durable flooring in high traffic areas (schools, public buildings, etc.).

 

Orgasol® powder is the best additive available on the market to improve multiple coating performance parameters for wood flooring.

 

This unique polyamide powder offers high levels of abrasion and scratch resistance, properties essential to floor coating durability. Orgasol® powder is also used for its gloss control and texturing properties that provide long lasting results.

 

In wood flooring, Orgasol® powder achieves smooth to rough textures as well as matte to satin finishes. Orgasol® powder also improves mar resistance, a critical property in the wood flooring market.

 

Orgasol® powder is easily dispersed in every kind of wood flooring formulations, including polyurethane, epoxy and acrylic. Orgasol® powder can be used in solvent based, water based, and 100% solid UV/EB curable formulations.
