Toward natural-look, more sustainable wooden flooring

Across the interior architectural market, consumers are increasingly looking for natural-looking, textured interior finishes – perhaps even made with local materials. In response to this trend, more and more architects are choosing wood as their preferred flooring material. Parquet styles are particularly popular.

At the same time, demand is growing for lower-emissions coatings for this wood flooring, driven by several factors. First, awareness of indoor air quality – and its impact on safety – is growing. Alongside this, updates to labeling standards such as EMICODE®, the Nordic Swan, and Ecolabel  are encouraging many manufacturers to reduce their coatings’ VOC emissions.

Decovery® CQ 2110: Designed to reduce emissions…

Decovery® CQ 2110 was created to address the demand for low-VOC parquet coating solutions. This water-based binder enables a low  solvent demand. As such, it’s compliant with upcoming changes to the EMICODE® EC1 PLUS label, as well as with Nordic Swan and Ecolabel .

…while protecting the beauty of parquet flooring

Better yet, these benefits don’t come at the cost of functional performance. In parquet coatings, Decovery® CQ 2110 produces a neutral-colored finish with excellent chemical resistance and mechanical properties.
