Wood Coatings are a special class of paints and coatings for wooden surfaces. They are used to enhance aesthetic appeal and ensure surface protection of wooden surfaces such as furniture, cabinets, sidings, and decking & floorings, among others. Various types of wood coatings include stains and varnishes, shellac coatings, wood preservatives, water repellants, and others. Wood coatings are available in different categories, based on technology such as solvent-based, water-based, high solids, and UV curing. Resins are one of the vital ingredients present in wood coatings. Some of the commonly used resins in wood coatings are polyurethane, nitrocellulose, acrylic, and polyester. Wood coatings find extensive scope in both residential and non-residential applications. Wood coating process involves smoothening the wooden surface by sanding, scraping, or planing, followed by filling the imperfections or nail holes on the surface using wood putty or wood filler. Once the wooden surface is smooth, stains or bleach are used to change color of the wood according to the preference. The next step involves the application of coatings which consists of several coats of wax, shellac, drying oil, lacquer, varnish, or paint, and each coat is typically followed by sanding. Finally, the surface is polished using steel wool, rottenstone or other materials, depending on the degree of shine required. Additionally, a final coat of wax is applied over the finish to add a layer of protection.
