BURLINGTON, Ont. -- Katilac Coatings Inc. (KCI) is now the authorized distributor in Southern Ontario for the Sirca line of Italian wood finishes including polyurethanes, polyesters and waterborne coatings.

Officially KCI is launching the Sirca line at the WMS 2017 show at the Toronto International Centre Nov. 2-4. The KCI booth is 1302 at WMS.

The Sirca partnership offers synergy with KCI’s line of conventional acid cured wood coatings manufactured at their Burlington location. KCI’s strength has been traditional catalyzed lacquers and varnishes for the cabinet and furniture market.

This partnership widens the breadth of products that KCI offers and thus array of customers they can service.

Richard Johnston, director of technology at KCI, said, “The polyurethane market segment has been seeing consistent growth over the last few years as wood products manufacturers are looking for higher performance solutions and aesthetic options such as high gloss finishes that are more easily obtained with polyurethanes.”

Sirca products will be available through both of KCI’s locations, in Woodbridge and Burlington Ontario. The sales and technical team, trained by Sirca’s application specialists from Italy, will be able to assist customers with product selection and application. KCI will be outfitted with Sirca’s Colour Passions system to match any color customers require. See www.katilaccoatings.com.
