ICA Group recently unveiled the My Gloss system. The new system was conceived to fulfill the increasingly stringent requirements of the furniture sector, which is based on the need to achieve high-quality gloss coatings using cycles that have low levels of environmental impact. The final lacquered gloss effects of the My Gloss system can be obtained both with colored basecoats and with transparent gloss topcoats, and even directly with pigmented gloss topcoats. Specifically, the My Gloss system is composed of versatile products for the preparation of the base surface such as primers, fillers and UV intermediates with 100 percent solid residue. Alongside these, there are water-based epoxy base coats. ICA said the My Gloss system made it possible to reduce VOCs released into the atmosphere during application by more than 90 percent.
