Furniture coatings are protective coatings that provide high gloss and long-lasting finish. Furniture coatings are used on table and chairs, bed frames, armoires, bath vanity, cupboards, kitchen furniture, and office furniture. These coatings protect furniture from changes in temperature, exposure to chemicals, liquids, dirt-build up, and scratches. Coatings applied over the furniture possess properties such as quick drying, sanding & stackability, chemical and mechanical resistance, and superior tannin blocking. Polyurethane and poly-acrylic based coatings are commonly employed to protect furniture. Key properties of these coatings include resistance to climate change, corrosion, abrasion, and chemicals. The choice of binder has significant impact on furniture coatings. Furniture coatings exposed to high moisture areas are formulated to withstand high moisture level in order to maintain substrate adhesion. They also possess high scrubbing and stain resistance.
