The research institute confirms: Synthos Synexil AF 33 dispersion meets high IKEA standards
An independent research institute has confirmed that Synthos Synexil AF 33 dispersion meets the high requirements of the IOS-MAT-0066 standard popularised and used by IKEA, among others. This specification sets out extensive requirements for coatings, both in terms of their composition and resistance to dirt or temperature. Synexil AF 33 is the answer to the demanding expectations of wood coatings manufacturers who are looking for high-quality dispersions as a base for their products.
Synthos Synexil AF 33 acrylic dispersion is designed for a wide range of applications on wooden substrates – mainly in transparent and pigmented furniture protection varnishes.
Thanks to its complex structure, it ensures a high hardness of the coating and protects the surface against the penetration of stains such as coffee, wine or oil.
– With growing interest in our Synexil AF 33 dispersion and increasing enquiries about compliance with the IOS-MAT-0066 standard used by IKEA, we decided to develop our own formulations of transparent and pigmented matt varnishes for wood. Today we can officially confirm that the product we offer meets IKEA standards,” says Damian Nowak, Product Manager at Synthos.
The specification of standard IOS-MAT-0066 describes IKEA’
s requirements for coatings, according to which products must not contain: hazardous substances (including heavy metals), carcinogens and mutagens, solvents or formaldehyde.
