Unichem Dry Erase Coatings

Dry Erase Coatings

The concept of "dry erase" has been around for decades, offering the end user a great alternative to old chalk boards. The industry has had two dry erase products for many years - one using a costly porcelain finish and the other, a laminate film for a more economical approach.

As the popularity of dry erase technology grew, a more cost-effective and efficient manufacturing process was necessary to expand the market. However, as the industry sought to bring a high-yield, low cost solution to the consumer, eraseability and the ability to post-form was not possible with the current technology.

Unichem's Uni-mark coating system was created to strike just the right blend of function and value. This coating has been tested with over a hundred markers from a wide array of manufacturers, even some permanent marker manufacturers! With over 10,000 cycles of eraseability, heat and humidity cycling, and cleanability that exceeds the industry's stringent requirements, Unichem has created a finish that blows away the competition.

Uni-mark provides the dry erase board manufacturers a surface that minimizes ghosting and shadowing, always keeping your white board fresh and ready to use. Even permanent markers clean off with spray cleaners. Offered in standard high gloss and low gloss, projection quality finishes as well as multiple colors, this was the finish of choice to go into a new corporate headquarters of a Fortune 20 high technology company’s world headquarters and is used as a key source for the dry erase finished panels at one of the world’s leading office furniture manufacturers.
