Water-based coatings for interiors


ICA Group's objective is to combine innovation, high quality and low environmental impact. The decision to focus strongly on water-based coatings and (water-based and solvent-based) UV-curing coatings was taken long before the current increase in awareness of environmental matters. ICA Group's motivation was initially to help protect those who work with coatings and those who live in contact with the products onto which those coatings are applied.
Thanks to the innovative research conducted by the ICA Group R&D laboratory, a wide range of water-based coatings for interiors has been formulated; these coatings have characteristics that compare favorably with those of a normal solvent-based coating.
ICA Group supports its client base in the move from solvent-based to water-based coatings. The laboratory experts, together with the technical support team, provide effective responses to clients' requirements through the development of innovative, high-performance products that are able to deliver the best results in aesthetic and performance terms, without compromising the production timescales.
The water-based coatings can be monocomponent or bicomponent. The former are particularly suited to more simple, practical and economical uses, since they are ready-to-use, easy to apply and offer great value for money, as there is no wastage; any material remaining after the processing operations can be re-used.
In contrast, bicomponent water-based coatings require the addition of a second component – the catalyzer. These coatings are ideal for the coating of surfaces that require high levels of chemical resistance and surface hardness.
ICA Group's bicomponent water-based coatings have been awarded the European Union's LIFE mark, which is given to projects that embody a high level of technological innovation geared towards the safeguarding of the environment.
  • A healthier working environment
  • Ease of application
  • Versatility
  • Excellent aesthetic/qualitative results
  • Excellent chemical/physical resistance of the top coat
  • Dilution with water
  • Greater yield on application
  • Cleaning of the machine with water
  • Lower insurance premiums
ICA Group offers ranges of water-based coatings for wood, glass and wooden flooring.

Sealers are applied directly onto wood in order to regenerate the tone of the wooden surface, block the migration of tannins, facilitate adhesion on oily and resinous wood species and give greater fullness to the coating cycle.
ICA Group offers transparent monocomponent or bicomponent sealers.
Base coats
Base coats act on the fill level of the surface (solid wood, veneer, MDF, melamine paper) and are very important for the success of the coating cycle, since they influence the surface's level of transparency and coverage.
ICA Group's range of water-based base coats offers a wide array of options to match the type of wood being used, the application characteristics (resistance to overcoating, coverage and fullness, sandability, verticality, wettability and transparency) and on the desired type of final effect.
ICA Group offers transparent and pigmented monocomponent and bicomponent base coats.
Top coats
Top coats serve to protect the coated object from the external stresses to which it is subject. In addition, they endow the surface with the desired aesthetic and tactile properties.
ICA Group's range of water-based top coats offers multiple options to match the specific set of requirements to be met: surface to be coated (wood, wooden flooring, glass), type of product to be manufactured, application (spray, roller, curtain coating, immersion), and desired levels of performance and characteristics.
ICA Group has developed top coats with various levels of opacity, from gloss coatings with a high-gloss finish to low-level gloss coatings with a natural effect; across the range, the quality and performance standards remain high.
ICA Group offers transparent and pigmented monocomponent and bicomponent water-based top coats.
