Exydry-Z

Exydry-Z

Exydry-Z employs excimer matting technology to obtain soft-touch, resistant surfaces with a lasting fingerprint-proof effect and deep matt finish, also on raised panels meaning also the edges of cabinet doors.


Exydry-Z is an excimer oven capable of handling more than just a flat panel. Obtaining a soft-touch, deep matt finish with long-term scratch and abrasion resistance on raised panels in general is now possible thanks to 3 patent pending technologies.

DEEP MATT FINISH

The lacquer is cured in such a way as to produce an extremely matt finish as low as 5 gloss on a scale going from 0 to 100. Plus, it achieves that sought-after, lasting fingerprint-proof effect.

SOFT-TOUCH EFFECT

Excimer matting technology accomplishes a short-wave UV polymerisation process in an oxygen-free atmosphere delivers high-performance surfaces with a soft-touch effect.

X, Y AND Z AXIS

Conceived specially for raised panels, this innovative system handles, for example, cabinet doors up to 25 mm thick sprayed using robot and/or oscillating machines. The patent pending design enables a continuous flow of raised panels through the oven, taking care of full oxygen removal, a condition which is essential for excimer technology, without stopping the production flow, and consequently the production plant.

SUSTAINABLE VALUE

The nitrogen used to wash away all the oxygen from the X, Y and Z axes of a raised panel, enabling matting on all surfaces, is substantially lower than conventional excimer ovens.

Features

  1. Excimer matting technology extended to all 3 axes (panel edges up to 25 mm thick)
  2. High-performance surface finish for long-term scratch and abrasion resistance
  3. Soft-touch, fingerprint-proof effect even on raised panels
  4. Deep matt finish reaching below-5 gloss on a 0 – 100 scale
  5. Minimal nitrogen consumption (65% less than average) reduces costs

Focus on

So far, excimer matting technology has been used on flat panels because removing oxygen from 3D objects, especially the edges of a raised panel or possible milled or bas-relief surfaces has never been accomplished satisfactorily. Exydry-Z includes patent-pending technologies to effectively wash away all the oxygen from the X, Y and Z axes of a raised panel, enabling excimer matting on all surfaces.
