Lacquers are clear or colored coatings that provide glossy finish to furniture and fixture surfaces. They are available with many different sheen levels, ranging from high gloss to ultra-matte. It offers extremely hard finishes, and is highly resistant to damage, particularly from acid, alkali, water, and abrasions.
It is dispersed in solvent, which evaporates quickly by curing process leaving a hard, durable finish on the furniture. Solvent-based lacquer such as nitrocellulose lacquer cures slow, which makes the finishing process, touch-up, or repair easier and more controllable. It is produced from the nitration of cotton and other cellulosic materials, which produce high shine, providing hard, flexible, and durable finish. Acrylic lacquer provides enhanced adhesion to metals, and has high resistance to UV ray and water.
The advantage of acrylic lacquer over nitrocellulose lacquer is its significantly rapid drying time. Increase in environmental- and health-related risks have led to the development of water-based lacquers. It is extensively used in wood furniture finishing, but does have combustibility issues as that of solvent-based lacquers.
Rise in disposable income and change in lifestyle patterns in emerging countries, such as China, India, Brazil, Middle East, and Africa, have fueled the demand for building renovation & remodeling, which drive the growth of the global furniture lacquer market. Moreover, growth in population in these countries is expected to boost the demand for housing and commercial infrastructure.
Rise in preference for eco-friendly, nontoxic products and increase in environmental awareness among the consumers have supplemented the demand for water-based furniture lacquer. However, solvent-based furniture lacquer is witnessing a downturn, owing to stringent government regulations and environmental policies due to presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
