High Strength in Super Strong HS varnish

The High Strength concept is a new term more and more frequently used in materials science. It indicates materials (metal, plastic, fibre, synthetic resins) meeting the highest mechanical strength criteria.
Here, it is worth mentioning the High Strength aluminium demonstrating enhanced mechanical strength properties or better resistance to corrosion than traditional aluminium. Thanks to adding a proper ratio of copper and titanium to an aluminium alloy, we obtain HS elements which are extremely resistant to impact and mechanical loads. High Strength type "aluminium steel" is additionally 20% - 30% lighter and, due to its low dead load and extremely high mechanical strength, is often used in the aviation industry.
Boeing, the leading manufacturer of planes, uses HS alloys in certain components of fuselages, stabilisers, flaps and undercarriage elements, i.e. in all applications where the highest degree of mechanical strength and resistance to fatigue is required.
The High Strength technology is not only used for manufacturing metals, but also plastics, polymers and synthetic resins including the types used for creating lacquer coats. Nowadays, everybody encounters or directly uses materials demonstrating strength not achievable a few years ago.
The latest 100% polyurethane HartzLack Super Strong HS lacquer is based on the High Strength formula. The main change was connected with using modern polyurethane resins of ultra-strong intermolecular bonds and increased resin concentration (content) with simultaneously decreased solvent content. Thanks to this, a lacquer of unprecedented resistance properties has been created. Moreover, it ensures much lower emissions of VOC (volatile organic compounds) to the atmosphere than classic solvent-based lacquers.
Wooden floors protected with HartzLack Super Strong HS demonstrate the highest possible resistance to abrasion, impact and scratching. Due to these properties, this lacquer is a perfect solution for floors subject to intensive operation (schools, sports halls, lecture halls, conference and dance halls). The HS formula increases parquet floor protection by up to 25%, which has direct impact on prolonging the floor life and limiting costs resulting from unnecessary renovations resulting from application of low strength parameters lacquers.
It is another example confirming the extensive scope of latest HS technology application - from plastics to metals, from aviation to parquet floors. Possibilities of extending the application range of these materials have been intensively analysed and we will surely take advantage of their fantastic capabilities.
