High Gloss and Super Matt


This line is based on HotCoating® technology, which gives additional resistance, and durability to high gloss panels and improves the surface quality. Besides, thanks to the integrated Excimer lamp, this line allows to achieve super matt surface with anti-fingerprints and soft-touch effect.

Even though the product layer is quite thin, the panels, lacquered with this system, have very high resistance to wear and scratch, which is ideal for environments like bathrooms and kitchens, where requirements to surface mechanical qualities are higher.

This roller lacquering system saves up to 50% of the product. By using 100% solid products it does not produce emissions to the atmosphere, which makes it both efficient and environmentally friendly.

Adhesion layer

Proper panel preparation is always important to obtain a good finishing result at the outfeed.

In the first preparation step, the panel is cleaned and preheated in order to facilitate the application of the HotCoating product, which has a very good adhesion even to non-porous surfaces like melamine and gives a resistant surface after curing.

Before moving on to the next phase, the panel must go through a cooling tunnel to get it to the right temperature for the next application.

Base coat

We use UV products in combination with “hotmelt” to prepare the surface for the sanding process.

Correct UV base coating is crucial for high gloss if you wish to obtain top finishing quality of your products.


Before sanding, UV base coat layers have already been cured in-depth with UV radiation. The sanding machine removes a thin layer of base coat to get a perfectly smooth surface for the application of the finishing lacquer.

After sanding, the panel goes through a cleaning process to keep the surface free from dust particles or other types of contamination.

*At Barberan we work with the best sanding machine manufacturers.


Our topcoat machines are fitted with all the required elements in order to keep lacquers in their best condition: filtering systems, temperature controls, and pressurization to avoid surface contamination.

Leveling tunnel for the finish coat helps obtain the desired quality and the mirror effect of the high gloss surface, which is totally cured with another UV tunnel at the outfeed.

For super matt finishes the panel is treated with an Excimer lamp for a deep, velvety, and soft matt effect which is commercially known as “soft touch”, also offering high resistance to scratches and fingerprints.

The process finishes with the application of the protective foil to the panel.
