2010 Investment in Environmentally-Friendly Virus and Bacteria Resistant Products
Funder America, Inc. has invested several million dollars during 2010 preparing to manufacture a new line of powder coated wood products. The powder coating process has distinct environmental advantages to traditional liquid paint coatings. Powder coating overspray is recycled in-process which reduces waste to near zero. In addition, powder coated products are resistant to viruses and bacteria making them ideal for healthcare, education, food service and household environments.
Powder coated wood products exhibit long term humidity and moisture resistance which makes them an ideal replacement for traditional painted wood in applications where water resistance is important.
Funder America Products are Fully Recyclable, Biodegradable and FDA Approved
