As the name implies painted kitchens are solid wood doors painted over to your specific requirements. Here in Ornan Kitchens & Wardrobes we have a state of the art spray booth where we use a two pack paint system. Two-pack paint is ideal for use in kitchens with a wipe clean hard wearing surface as it is a high quality and durable paint.
Two-pack, Twin Pack, or ‘2K’ as it’s sometimes known, is a type of automotive paint which has been around for years now, replacing the old cellulose, and is widely used on both production cars and in modern repair body shops and by modern Kitchen manufacturers.Basically, all that vehicle paint is, is a clear resin which has a pigment (or colour) suspended in it. At the factory, the resin has coloured powder suspended in it to form lots of basic colours, the reds, blues and greens etc. Then the basic paints are distributed to the retailer, who has a Mixing Scheme, i.e. a machine which can measure exact quantities of the basic colours, combining them to produce the final colour.
Using Two Pack for Painted Kitchens.
Two-Pack paint consists of different resin, made of acrylic and melamine (the proper title is Two Pack Acrylic Enamel). When the paint is mixed, a second resin is added, or hardener, called Poly-isocyanate Resin. At this stage a chemical reaction takes place between the two resins which makes them harden.
When Two-Pack has cured it is also much harder than cellulose and tends to resist petrol, acid rain, sunlight etc. much better than cellulose, for Cellulose based paint oxidises and goes dull over a long period, or even develops a milky haze.
