Pre-impregnated decor paper, the slimmest and most sustainable process for coating wood-based materials?

A presentation by Dennis Adis, Key Account Manager Sales & Technical Customer Service Ahlstrom-Munksjö Decor Solutions

On 21 – 22 September the Surface in Motion conference was held in Mainz, Germany. We were pleased to support this event and contribute with a lecture to this forum for the decorative surfaces industry.

Pre-impregnated decor paper, developed in the early 1980s as an alternative to post-impregnated products and PVC film, has developed within a short time from a complementary product to a sought-after alternative for coating wood-based materials. But what added value does pre-impregnated decor paper offer today? How efficient is it and what contribution does it make to a more sustainable end product?

Optionally printed with environmentally friendly inks, always coated, e.g. with solvent- and formaldehyde-free lacquers, it is the basis for so-called finish foils, which can be found on many furniture or interior design elements. Pre-impregnated decor paper is bonded to wood-based materials in a low-energy and emission-free finishing process. Films based on pre-impregnated paper enable new shapes and diverse applications in the wood-based materials and furniture industry. Finish foil surfaces are available in different variants - from low-cost to high-quality and very resistant - to meet the respective requirements. Ahlstrom-Munksjö provides product solutions for established processing methods, but also innovations and technical support for new processing possibilities, more sustainable solutions and competitive end products.
