Now it’s “silkwood’s” turn

Kröning (Germany), the specialist for melamine resin edge bands and wrapping foils in the Surteco Group (Germany), has spotted a new trend in the furniture and surface market: “silkwood”. It has a silky-shiny, black and silver surface that is iridescent. Controlled charring or singeing without burning the whole workpiece makes the wood durable by means of carbonisation. The method probably originated in Japan: there, the process is called “sho-sugi ban” or “yakisugi”. To go with the flat foils and melamine panels that are appearing more and more on the market, the producer is now also offering matching melamine resin edge bands and wrapping foils for profiles and mouldings. By using mother of pearl printing ink and iridescent coatings in combination with the “venatura” optical finish and haptic relief lacquers, Kröning matches its melamine edge bands and foils exactly to the surface decors and thus provides its customers with additional areas of use for the new design trend. as
