Zenlia's finishing process uses solar heat and cogeneration of electricity to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions emitted. We recycle our solvents to reduce the waste that is sent to MOE certified processors, giving it a second use/life. The start of a great finish is the preparation. We painstakingly sand and inspect the raw wood with flat beam non-glare inspection lights. These allow us to catch any imperfections or indents before the colour application. In our multistep dye and stain process, Zenlia sprays deep penetrating NGR dye on the raw wood, then stain is sprayed on and carefully hand wiped to create an even colour tone. We are very passionate about our colours and their quality. It is evident in the finish and defines how the Zenlia colour difference is achieved with clear, vibrant colour tones. Before applying the sealer we match and shade the colour to master boards. The next step is applying the sealer which is post catalyzed. It takes a great deal of time and skill to correctly hand sand the sealer without burning the edges. After the sealer is sanded we apply a post catalyzed varnish. This means the craftsmen add a catalyst to the conversion varnish which kicks off a cross-linking reaction and creates a powerful and tightly blended molecular binding build to the finish. All this is what makes our finish durable and chemical-resistant. In our final steps we inspect and polish the coating to a brilliant luster.
