Wild Effects. Take a walk on the wild side

For more than 30 years LBA® has been developing and producing innovative abrasive systems and patented products for the sanding, finishing and polishing of every kind of surface. Now the company proudly leads the eclectic FINISHING LAB®: a research center born from the collaboration with the Italian research institute CATAS and with the main producers of sanding machines, now collaborating 360 degrees with the architecture and design world and in general with every research and development entities focused on surface finishing. The aim of the lab is to create new finishes achievable through simple production processes, in a synergy between sanding machines, innovative abrasive belts and human creativity. Among the successes of FINISHING LAB®, there are four innovative finishes that have already become classics in the production of wooden floors and pre-finished parquets, panels, doors and cabinet doors.
The Saw Effect, the Pickled Effectthe Skived Effect and the Scratched Effect.

The main contribution of FINISHING LAB® is to allow the automation and internalisation of production processes that are typically handcrafted and made in outsourcing, with a fast and low-cost set-up phase: in fact, in comparison with the usual production systems, these processes plan the use of automatic sanding machines, that are usually already part of the main industrial plants producing furnishings and components.

Thanks to these processes, a lot of finishes can be easily achieved, ready to be processed with further treatments such as antiquing, brushing, painting, oiling and varnishing, multiplying the expressive possibilities of wood and derivatives. In this way LBA® provides a substantial contribution not only in the sanding and finishing of the product, but also in the style research and in the choice of materials, and acts as a connective link between the manufacturing context and the design world, multiplying the palette of finishes that inspire the creativity of architects and designers.

From the research and experimentation of LBA® the successful Pickled Collection is born, a new way of conceiving
the pickled finish playing with color contrasts like in an haute-couture atelier. But there’s more! The brand new collection of Wild Effects is here, inspired by the natural beauty of stone surfaces, by daydreams of exotic landscapes and by the unexpected patterns of Nature in its most fascinating and savage form. The collection is composed by the elegant Stone effect, reproducing the tactile and visual feel of a smooth stone, and by the eccentric zebra-like pattern of the Savanna effect. For the urban-style lovers seeking for something new, here’s the classic Skived effect reinterpreted in a soft touch version with three new matte colors: white, magnolia and anthracite, all produced thanks to abrasive belts by LBA®.

A Joyous Christmas time and a New Year of sanding + innovation!

It is that time of the year when you usually draw conclusions about what you’ve realized and you start outlining the brand new projects that will accompany you through the twelve months to come.

Now that the year’s almost over, there’s so much we would like to talk about!

For instance we could tell you about how proud we are of the performances of our patented products COMBI and AbraSilk, reading satisfaction through our customers’ eyes and helping them to reach their finishing goals!

Or we could talk about how we’ve felt excited each time that our Innovation Lab FINISHING LAB has produced some brand new finishes to enhance the natural beauty of every wooden surface, and each time these finishes have been chosen to improve a new product. No matter if these products are kitchen doors, wooden floors or may be interior doors: the most important thing is that, thanks to our finishes, our customers have entered new markets!

For sure we could tell you how many new customers have found in LBA a valuable partner, able to think outside the box, to develop unique solutions and to deliver them innovation through the Taylor Made service – a profound belief more than a service – based on knowledge-sharing and training, made possible by a fluid collaboration between customer and supplier in order to gain excellence through sanding.

Oh yes, there are so many things we could tell you…
But we feel like we don’t need to.

Christmas storytelling is nice, but we prefer to deliver results, because this is what we are very good on.

So we just wish you a Joyous Christmas time
and, why not, a New Year of sanding + innovation!
