The next step is to finish our boards with a coloured coating. We use a waterborne coating system which has a high durability. With our modular system we can create all kind of designs, from unicolour boards to Woods, Stones, Metals or Chameleon designs.
Afterwards, an extra protective layer can be applied. This ProtectPlus coating creates a self-cleaning anti-graffiti surface with improved weathering resistance and optimal UV resistance for an even more durable result.
During this stage the paint lines are cleaned with water – the only time water is used at the Rockpanel production facility. The total amount of water used during this process is less than 3.000 m3 (in 2021 exact use was 2.804 m3). Afterwards the water is sent to the recycling plant of ROCKWOOL helping to reduce the amount of fresh water needed.
