EXCIMER Technology
Premium UV Coating for resilient and vinyl flooring

Thanks to 15 years of experience, BLANCHON & CIRANOVA are positioned as the world leaders in Excimer coating for vinyl (international patent N°12325444) and hard wood floor.

We provide to our industrial customers with customized solutions adapted to the configuration of their UV coating line.

Technological breakthrough

Many technical advantages :

  • Ultra matte appearance achievable (less than 5% at 85°)
  • Very high chemical resistance even with very aggressive substances (Betadine, Eosin, marker...)
  • Excellent level of resistance to abrasion and scratching
  • Gloss stability during production
  • VOC barrier effect - strongly limits VOC emission values at 28 days (< 10 µg/m³)

The Excimer lamp diffuses a single wavelength of 172 nm of very high energy which polymerizes a very thin layer on the surface of the varnish. This difference in state between the polymerized surface and the depth of the still wet film causes a stress that develops folds on the surface.
It is these micro wrinkles that provide the deep matte properties by effectively diffracting the light. The film is then cross-linked in its totality with a UV lamp in order to give it the final mechanical and chemical performance. The principle is very different and more efficient than a traditional UV varnish with a surface relief brought by silica grains contained in the wet film.
