Typical Applications
Due to its versatility, ICA polyurethane coatings can be used anywhere where the beautification and protection of wood is paramount. Polyurethane lends itself especially to applications where a durable, resistant, and stable finish is required, such as offices, public buildings, and kitchen furniture.

ICA produces a wide range of products suitable for every woodworking need – whether matte or gloss, full fill or open pore, “water white” clears or solid colour. Our polyurethanes will give you excellent results using simple application procedures.

Unlike many coatings, polyurethanes can be built up to achieve a closed pore, full fill finish without fear of checking or delaminating. Polyurethanes can also be left for a period, then sanded and top coated at a later date. True high gloss (over 95% at 60 degrees) and pure brilliant colours to diversify the possible outcomes using these products.

To ensure optimum results with ICA polyurethane products, there are a few simple precautions:

      1. Ensure nozzle size and air pressure are suitable (typically 1.8-2.2mm for conventional equipment)
      2. Use only D1010, D1015, or D1024 as reducers
      3. Catalyze accurately (frequently 2:1)
      4. Do not rush sanding and drying times
      5. Avoid excessively heavy coats especially on the first coat or spraying on hot or humid days
      6. Ensure there is no moisture or other contamination in the air lines
      7. Check adhesion prior to commencing a project
      8. Verify whether a standard or non-yellowing catalyst is required
