Helios presents trends in wood coatings

In May this year, Cankarjev dom hosted the 10th traditional event “Čar lesa” (the Charm of Wood) with an exhibition of wooden products and several accompanying events. Its main purpose is the promotion of wood and the use of wooden products.

The main theme of the event was “Wood coatings – development guidelines and innovations”, where the representatives of the economy and the academic sphere combined their knowledge and experience.

Helios’s experts also presented trends from this field. They discussed surface treatment of furniture with water-based lacquers (Gordana Savković, development engineer for the HIDROHEL brand) and the use of BIO coatings based on oils and waxes for interior wooden surfaces (Rok Kosec, development engineer for the BIOIMPREGNOL product group).

Prof. dr. Marko Petrič, head of the surface treatment laboratory at the Biotechnical Faculty, who also moderated the event, concluded: “Great turnout has shown that this area is very important and always interesting. Very intense development of wood surface treatment materials is taking place, and coatings are continuously improving and provide a higher quality of treated surfaces.”
