IKEA furniture gets the soft touch. The technology in question was initially developed for use on laptop covers. Customers were looking for eco-efficient solutions that offered new textures, effects and patterns. So a soft touch topcoat was developed which met all the demanding specifications. However, one of Powder Coatings’ furniture sector managers thought the new range might be of interest to IKEA and it was the perfect fit. IKEA now produce 1.5 million flower pots in Vietnam and Germany, all coated with our soft touch powder technology. The flower pots, named Papaya and Kardemumma in the Ikea range, bring a bright, tactile yet protective look and feel to the collection.
