Uralac® Ultra

The powder of possibilities.

Your starting point for the finest paint finishes in construction

For construction applications made from MDF and engineered wood you need durability, reliability, and coatings that provide the best finishes, both interior and exterior. Our Uralac® Ultra advanced technology for next-generation powder coatings is based on unique binder chemistry that includes tough urethane for lasting performance. But that’s only half the story. Uralac® Ultra renders the finest paint finishes through a one-layer system unique to modified and engineered wood. It delivers a wonderful glaze coat and overall texture, and enables intricate new designs for interior applications for the house - from window frames to doors (and the bright minds at Covestro are already working on exterior applications). If you’re looking for the best finish…you’ve found the right starting point.

Opening up to a world of door finishes

Pre-hung, prefinished, glazed, bi-fold, French…No matter what the interior door type, our Uralac® Ultra advanced binding technology opens up a new world of possibilities in powder coated doors made from MDF: And all with outstanding aesthetics and durability. We’ve optimized Uralac® Ultra to deliver the best finish – from clear varnish to bright wrinkle textures. It works well with a variety of engineered woods, giving you the design freedom associated with powder coatings, so now you can produce MDF doors with the most intricate designs and detailing, fast and (cost) efficiently.

Room for improvement? Wonderful wall finishes

Above all, wall finishes like interior panels and skirting boards need to be tough. But you also need the design freedom to create cool yet complex designs with profiling and routing that looks good in both the modern and rustic home. Our Uralac® Ultra advanced technology for powder coating MDF gives you the best of both worlds for powder-coated panels. Made from super-tough urethane, it delivers long-term performance that surpasses liquid paints. But thanks to a unique one-layer coating system it brings the simplicity, speed and convenience associated with powder-coated metal to all sorts of panelling profiles made from engineered wood. For coating specialists it’s the ideal solution for creating the best internal finishing in the living room (or any other room).

Frequently asked questions

How is it possible to spray powder on standard “non-conductive” MDF?

For the application of the powder, the moisture in the MDF is used for conductivity. A moisture content of 4-to-8 percent of weight is sufficient to attract the powder.

Is special MDF needed for powder coating?

For the application of the powder, the moisture in the MDF is used for conductivity. A moisture content of 4-to-8 percent of weight is sufficient to attract the powder.

Can I use my existing powder coating for metal oven for curing MDF powder?

Most of the conventional curing ovens are convection ovens but the best results for MDF are reached with infrared radiation (IR) ovens. With IR ovens, the surface of the MDF can be heated up quickly to cure the powder coating, while the core of the MDF stays relatively cool. With convention ovens, the temperatures are often too high or the core of the MDF heats-up too much because of the longer time needed to reach the curing temperature.
