COMMERCIAL FURNITURE & WOOD TABLE FINISHES
ULTRA VIOLET (UV) FINISH
Our patented ultraviolet finishing process (UV) is among the most advanced and environmental friendly available on the market. It sets the standard for environmental responsibility. The finishes used by most furniture manufacturers emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which can be toxic to humans when they escape into the environment as airborne pollutants. At GAR Products®, we use specially formulated water-based finishes that are cured in seconds with ultraviolet energy, capturing 97% of the VOCs. UV Coatings work when high-intensity light energy is absorbed by photo initiators, activating free-radicals that converts the liquid finish to a solid in seconds.
We offer a variety of standard house finishes, from traditional wood to a number of unique and innovative colors. We even offer custom UV color matching to any existing wood work in any application (with the exception of solid white).
NOTE: Wood is a product of nature, which varies from tree to tree and piece to piece. The beauty of wood is this natural variety. The samples displayed are digital photographs of our “UV” house finishes shown on European Beechwood. Actual finish samples and products may vary. Wood samples are available upon request.
Some UV colors are listed as premium options due to the amount of touch up time required to run.

GAR Products® offers many models with a Lacquer Finish which is pre-finished overseas. The lacquer used on our wood seating is a quick drying solvent based lacquer that contains nitrocellulose, a resin obtained from the nitration of cotton and other cellulose materials. Easy to apply, it gives a smoother more decorative surface than water-based coating systems and can be buffed to a beautiful high gloss once cured. Hard and durable, it remains the choice finish material of wood furniture due to its quick drying nature and its ability to blend well with the natural grain and coloring of different woods. NOTE: Lacquer finishes vary from model to model based on the country of origin of our frame builder. Due to the difficulty in maintaining Lacquer finish consistencies across multiple sources, GAR Products® can not be responsible for finish variances.
