Surface treatment panels for walls and ceilings
In surface treatment of panels for walls and ceilings (MDF-plates), an acid-cured primer and top-coating can be substituted with a water-based primer and an UV-cured top coating. This reduces the amount of coating used, reduces the solvent emission by 96 % and reduces the amount and number of classified ingredients with carcinogenic and reprotoxic effects. The alternative still contains a small percentage of an additive that may cause cancer. Further research is needed to eliminate this.
