2 Pack Finishing services provided by Uneke Furniture
Our standard finish. We use a Pre catalysed lacquer made in Australia By Mirotone in a satin finish. This is an easy maintenance, clear finish which while showing the natural beauty of the timber also provides a robust surface layer that is repairable. Sprayed onto natural timber, small scratches are able to be lightly sanded out and repaired using Mirotone Spraylac, which contains an amount of thinners to let the new lacquer penetrate and blend in with the original finish. There is no need for messy re-oiling and the lacquer is very low maintenance.
With a clear lacquer finish we can resurface our Uneke solid timber table tops. This involves removing the old damaged lacquer and worn timber and re-polishing the top with new lacquer, bringing it back just like new.
For further information please see our care and maintenance section.
Most commonly used on Tasmanian Oak, staining timber allows us to custom match furniture to a colour sample provided by the customer.
Tasmanian Oak is best suited for this process as the timber is a light neutral colour and has the most even grain. Stain is sprayed onto the raw furniture which penetrates into the top layer of timber cells, and then a clear lacquer is applied over the top to seal it. While the lacquer provides a layer of protection, stained lacquer finishes are very difficult to repair should the damage penetrate through the lacquer layer. Stained tables are unable to be resurfaced.
Any dulux paint can be used as a Painted Lacquer and applied to our furniture. with a small amount of grain showing through the painted surface.
Again, the furniture is made using Tasmanian Oak, and the raw timber is sealed with a coat of sanding sealer (the same as it would be with Clear lacquer). The colour coat is then applied to suit, and the colour is then locked in with a top coating of clear lacquer, preventing any paint coming off when rubbed and allowing easy maintenance for the surface. Painted lacquer is great for that provincial style look.
2 Pack Polyurethane
Available in Satin or most commonly Gloss, 2 pack polyurethane uses a chemical reaction between the paint and a hardener to cure. This gives furniture the finish as durable and scratch resistant as car paint, allowing any dulux colour to be painted on silky smooth with no timber grain exposed.
Our 2 pack finishes are sprayed over satinboard, a product specially designed for the painting of gloss finishes, that is primed before the paint goes on. Gloss 2 pack is becoming more and more popular, especially when incorporated with timber highlights.
2 Pack Polyurethane, just like a car paint, can be touched up but not repaired without respraying the entire surface.
