Complementary furnishings

Complementary furnishings

The term “complementary furnishings” takes in a large variety of products (tables, chairs, turned pieces, baseboards, borders, etc.); to differentiate them from the rest of the interior design of which they form part, ICA Group has come up with an extensive array of special effects conceived specifically for complementary furnishings.
Performance and aesthetic advantages

Tactile sensations
The immense range of special effects endows the wood with various tactile sensations. The texturizing effects, for example, make the wood rather rough to the touch, whereas the “soft touch” effects render it pleasantly soft and rubbery.
 
Chemical/physical resistance
ICA Group had developed specific coatings for this sector that have excellent chemical/physical resistance. In particular, these coatings are able to avoid the problems that generally affect the coating of borders, stairs, etc. During product development, a considerable amount of time and effort was devoted to coverage, the possibility of vertical application, and adhesion.
 
Adhesion
Adhesion is an essential requirement for a coating that must protect elements intended to cover parts that are subject to shocks and stresses, such as profiles, borders, baseboards, stairs, tables and chairs. All of the products are tested to evaluate their adhesion performance, even after the phase of artificial weathering. 

Application

Versatile products for all types of systems
Thanks to its partnerships with the leading manufacturers of coating systems, ICA Group has perfected versatile products that can be applied to various systems, thus reducing waste and simplifying use.
 
Reduction of the drying times and simplification of the cycles
Rapid-drying products that can be applied with simple cycles such as those offered by ICA Group ensure the reduction of the working times, which constitutes a fundamental aspect with a view to remaining competitive and responding fully to client requirements.

Products with low levels of environmental impact

The range of ICA Group products that have low levels of environmental impact also includes specific products that are able to fulfill the particular requirements of this sector: chemical/physical resistance, adhesion and vertical application.
