Madera features Ultra-Violet matte finish on all exposed surfaces by uti-
lizing roll-coat UV technology. Our durable UVAdvantage® finish makes
surfaces less likely to be damaged by abrasions, scratches, water, alcohol,
stains, and common chemicals. Our UVAdvantage® finish magnifies the
beauty of our wood finishes and reduces the darkening, aging, and yellow-
ing process of wood furniture that naturally occurs over time. Once cured
by UV lighting, our UVAdvantage® finish does not emit irritable toxins, form-
aldehyde, or solvents into the air creating a safe work environment within
new furniture installations. This process has allowed us to achieve third
party certification for Indoor Air Quality. Additionally our UVAdvantage®
finish greatly reduces hazardous air pollutants which contribute to smog
formation, and our UVAdvantage® finish is recaptured over and over again
reducing waste materials. Automated production technology eliminates
exposure to sprayed chemicals in our factories. High gloss UVAdvantage®
finish available on request.
