Prestigious project

For a succesful project, a good interaction between the supplier and manufacturer is essential. For the impressive church Westminster Abbey in London a solvent-based color stain and clear lacquer is used to provide the protection that is needed while maintaining a chic appearance.

Our partner, Oxid Coatings, got the request of Casala to develop a stain within a specific color, specially made for Westminster Abbey. For this Leon Volk, the director of Oxid Coatings, created eight different shades of brown. Eventually, one matching color was selected for the 2.200 news chairs for Westminster Abbey.

Which products are used?

The veneer of the chairs was colored with the HD LM Kleurbeits of Anker Stuy – Heidelberg. For this project it was important that the quality of the lacquer met the stringent requirements. For instance, the lacquer should be wax, scratch and wear resistant. For the finish the HD Solo Pur Systeemlak blank stompmat was applied, which increases the protection against external influences.
