Berlac launches a waterborne process lacquer for the watch-dial industry


With the Berlaqua process lacquer Berlac responds to the requirements of the EU directive on VOC emissions and thus to the need of the watchmaking industry in lacquer systems enabling a sustainable watch-dial manufacture free of acetone. Berlaqua satisfies all the technical requirements placed on mechanical workability and can be removed by means of water without leaving any residue.

Metal needs to be temporarily protected at many different stages of watch-dial manufacture: for example, when it is drilled or milled. Here Berlaqua process lacquer provides an ideal method of preventing scratching and similar damage. The lacquer film dries at room temperature within 10 minutes of application without shrinkage or forming ugly foam bubbles. The lacquer can be coloured with a dye solution to make it easier to see when work is carried out on the dial. After mechanical processing, the film can be removed without difficulty using water. In addition, Berlaqua process lacquer can also be used to provide temporary protection for dials that have already been coated. Owing to its solubility in water, the lacquer is not intended for use in electroplating baths.
