How to Reduce Problems and Maximize Profits Using Two-Component Polyurethane and Waterborne Finishes

Two component polyurethanes are replacing conversion varnishes in high end kitchens and other woodwork.
 
The popularity of two component polyurethanes (2K PU) is increasing. This is due to the improved durability and look versus other traditional finishes. 2K PU can have durability that surpasses conversion varnish. Some 2K PU coatings even have exterior resistance properties.  Couple this with the ability of 2K PU finishes to achieve a “natural look” (only 2-3 degrees of gloss) where the finished wood still looks unfinished or “natural”, but has the protection of a high end finish. And the ability to have a “wet look” full gloss makes them very functional for finishing wood kitchen and batch cabinets.
Conversion varnishes have been known as one of the most durable finishes used on interior woodwork, now progressive companies are switching to 2K PU for the improved durability and aesthetics.
