Eliminate the need to finish in the shop, eliminate airborne toxins and facilitate high volume finishing.
Pre-finished NOVA panels are used primarily on interior vertical surfaces, such as cabinets, closets, fixtures and architectural interiors, particularly where finish consistency across a large number of panels is important.
NOVA finishes may be applied to all panels manufactured by States Industries. Available finishes include Clear, Translucent and Opaque. Standard gloss levels are Satin (30-40% reflectivity), Medium (50-60%) and High (70-80%). Custom gloss levels may be specified on volume orders. Custom colors require a prototyping process. NOVA finishes include NOVA PEAK, a set of stock color panels in popular species and NOVA LAB, a specialty finish with extraordinary chemical resistance properties that is SEFA certified for laboratory use. Recoatable topcoats are also available.
States NOVA finishes are 100% solid, modified epoxy acrylate that is cured by ultraviolet light. They do not release any volatile organic compounds or hazardous air pollutants in manufacturing or in use. These coatings are roll applied in a flat line system that recycles excess finish, eliminating waste and curing instantaneously. NOVA finishes comply with South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Rule 1113 and contributes to LEED IEQ 4.2: Low Emitting Materials-Paints and Coatings. Like all States Industries’ panels, NOVA products exceed CARB 93120.12.
UV Cured, Acrylated Epoxy, Polyester or Urethane coatings are ranked the highest in performance among 13 types of finishes compared in the Architectural Woodwork Standards. See, 2009 AWI, AWMAC, WI Architectural Woodwork Standards- 1st Edition, October 1, 2009.
