Cabinet companies promote the application of water-based paint, first of all to change the concept of consumption
cabinets and other furniture use water-based paint to be more environmentally friendly
In this regard, industry experts said that the difficulty in popularizing water-based paint is related to the lack of relevant standards, high costs, and complicated construction. Consumers' current lack of awareness of environmental protection is also one of the major reasons that hinder the development of water-based paint for furniture such as cabinets.
The large area of u200bu200bcabinet products and the large amount of paint will cause long-term pollution of formaldehyde and benzene series to indoor air, which will affect the physical and mental health of residents. According to industry insiders, in fact, with the continuous improvement of the process, water-based paint has surpassed it in terms of fullness, hardness, scratch resistance, acid and alkali resistance, etc. Promoting the use of water-based paint is good for both ordinary consumers and furniture painting workers such as cabinets.
The promotion of water-based paint must first change the mindset
Therefore, if cabinet companies want to promote water-based paint, they must first change the mindset of consumers and painters. Consumers and painters are accustomed to using oil-based paints, and they are accustomed to the high fullness and full sealing effect of oil-based paints. Although they recognize the environmental performance of water-based paints, they will habitually believe that water-based paints are hard, abrasion-resistant and resistant. Scratchability is worse, and these habitual things are often difficult to change. This requires paint and furniture companies to strengthen market guidance and training, and use facts to persuade and change consumers’ perceptions. This is also inseparable from the positive guidance of public opinion.
Upstream and downstream companies jointly tackle key problems and reduce costs
Next is a multi-pronged approach to reduce the cost of water-based paint. Because water-based paint is a new product, the quantity is still relatively small, and the raw materials are basically imported from foreign countries, and the price is high, which causes great pressure on furniture companies such as cabinets. In addition, due to the thin film of water-based paint, in terms of technology, it may increase the construction process and increase the cost of materials and labor. Therefore, the cost of water-based paint will increase by about 20% to 50% than that of oil-based paint. Of course, national finance levies consumption tax on oil-based paint and subsidizes water-based paint, which are also effective ways to reduce costs.
Upstream and downstream companies should jointly tackle key problems, including equipment and technology, to jointly promote the popularization of water-based paint for furniture such as cabinets. Because the construction process of water-based paint is different from that of oil-based paint, this requires the joint efforts of water-based paint manufacturers, manufacturers, and water-based paint equipment manufacturers to design and produce suitable processes and equipment based on the characteristics of water-based paints.
