Abstract: IKEA Industry is one of the biggest furniture manufacturers worldwide, due to high quality standards and strong cost consciousness, that made IKEA brand the leader in life at home. Part of IKEA supply chain, IKEA Industry in Paços de Ferreira stands for a ordable solutions for better living, by caring IKEAs values with humbleness and wield power, in striving to meet reality with constant desire for renewal, and daring to be different with simplicity. Kitchen doors and drawer fronts are some of the most stressed elements in home furniture, by heat and steam, by oils and detergents, by all pigmented food products like coffee or wine, being no surprise that surface treatment and testing of these parts are as stressing as the environment they will be used in. They are made from 3 layer grooved and drilled MDF, surface protected by polyester primers and lacquers, applied and cured under severe temperature parameters. Hard processing induces properties, like bending or porosity, demanding process adaptation and/or pre-treatment to avoid lacquering defects and less satisfying products.
