Ultra violet (UV) finish
Our patented ultraviolet finishing process (UV) is among the most advanced and environmental friendly available on the market. It sets the standard for environmental responsibility. The finishes used by most furniture manufacturers emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which can be toxic to humans when they escape into the environment as airborne pollutants. At GAR Products®, we use specially formulated water-based finishes that are cured in seconds with ultraviolet energy, capturing 97% of the VOCs. UV Coatings work when high intensity light energy is absorbed by photo initiators, activating free-radicals that converts the liquid finish to a solid in seconds.
We offer a variety of standard house finishes, from traditional wood to a number of unique and innovative colors. We even offer custom UV color matching to any existing wood work in any application (with the exception of solid white).
