Moisture expansion around furniture edges, esp. with bathroom- and kitchen furniture fronts and cabinet components, is a major issue for the furniture industry. Even the tiniest of damages around the edges, e.g. caused by profile- or flat scrapers, are enough for water ingress. If applied correctly, HydroTecFluid efficiently prevents moisture expansion on panel elements, thereby reducing the number of complaints. It can be applied manually by the assembly teams using a waterproofing stick, or during production in the through-feed by means of the mobilaTECT high-pressure nozzles.
With the waterproofing agent, a lotus effect is achieved – the surface will become water- and oil- or dirt-repellent (hydro- and oleophobic). Contaminations are then easier to remove. Up to a certain point, the coating is also scratch-proof.
