Ica Group presented at Xylexpo, the biennial worldwide fair of technologies for woodworking and components for the furniture industry, X-MATT, a new line of paints for ultra-opaque surfaces, scratch-resistant, anti-fingerprint and self-repairing.
The recognized innovation of this paint has led the company of Civitanova Marche to win the Xia-Xylexpo Innovation Awards award, arriving to the second place in the Finishing category.
The hi-tech paints of the X-MATT line have an extreme resistance. Thanks to the heat, surface scratches can be "erased" in a few seconds.
This innovative line of interior decorating paints can be applied to any type of surface. It allows to obtain ultra-opacity with high performance characteristics from the chemical-physical point of view, maintaining a level of VOC emissions in lower application compared to that of traditional UV products. X-MATT is anti-fingerprint, resistant to coffee stains, to cold liquids (UNI EN 12720) and to scratching (UNI EN 15186).
It is available in infinite colours and three-dimensional effects, soft to the touch, with reduced VOC emissions. The innovation of Ica Group continues to give excellent results: after introducing the revolutionary Bio paints on the market, produced without petroleum but with organic waste materials, now these new X-MATT paints are the result of constant research and innovation carried forward by the company. The Paniccia family enterprise has always invested in research and development of products and processes, with significant results that confirm it among the international market leaders.
The turnover of ICA Group goes to 118 million euros, with an increase of 6% compared to 2016, the export share increases and holds the national one, the number of employees and volumes increases.
