At N-Hance®, we’re known for innovation. Part of that includes our Lightspeed® UV system, which is unique to our company. When we’re refinishing cabinets, it offers an instant way to cure them. Here’s what to know about Lightspeed and why it will deliver superior results when we’re working on your cabinets.
What is Lightspeed?
Industries all over the globe – from the space station to manufacturing plants, medical and dental fields, and more – have been using technology similar to Lightspeed to revolutionize the way products are made.
For instance, manufacturing companies use UV light to cure paint, ink, and other finishes on products immediately. This minimizes downtime and increases efficiency and productivity. Likewise, if you’ve ever had a cavity filled at the dentist, chances are, you’re familiar with light-curing technology
Processes like these would typically take hours to complete or cure, but with this technology, it can be done in seconds. At N-Hance, we’ve capitalized on UV technology and brought it into our customers’ homes with Lightspeed, all for a faster and better-quality finish.
These finishes were previously only available on new cabinets from a factory. Now, thanks to Lightspeed, you can get the best of all worlds: cabinets that look like-new, stand strong in demanding kitchen environments, and also cost less than traditional refinishing.
How Does Lightspeed Work?
Once your cabinets are refinished and we apply the final top coat, we use our Lightspeed system. This triggers faster curing thanks to the UV wavelengths it emits. Our products also contain photo initiators that respond to this UV light and begin to cure instantly. This is far different from heat or thermal oxygen curing, which is how traditional cabinet refinishers often cure cabinets.
With a more traditional approach to curing, it can take up to two weeks to be able to fully use your kitchen cabinets once they are refinished. With N-Hance, the finish will be durable, yet 100% available to use once we walk out the door. This means no waiting around to get back into your kitchen and return to normal life. It’s a less stressful, more efficient process for you and your family.
In addition, with Lightspeed, we’re also able to deliver:
A Rock-Hard Finish
Not only will we be able to refinish your cabinets faster, but also ensure finishes are smoother, tighter, and more flexible. This means the finish on your cabinets will be longer-lasting and resistant to stains, chips, scuffs, and scratches. This is key in a busy kitchen environment where your cabinets are constantly in use. You’ll get both beauty and durability that sets our cabinets apart.
Superior Performance in a Kitchen Environment
You want kitchen cabinets that look great. At the same time, they need to work hard for you since there’s so much foot traffic and use in your kitchen. Thanks to the proprietary products we use, combined with our Lightspeed system, your cabinets will be resistant to oil, grease splatter, fingerprints, and constant wear and tear.
With a Lightspeed finish, your kitchen cabinets will also be easy to clean and maintain. For dusting, all you need is a damp microfiber cloth to gently wipe down your cabinets. If you have build-up from oil and grease, then use a mild dish soap and water combination and let it sit on the surface for up to one minute. Wipe it gently with a cloth. Avoid scrubbing, or harsh, chemical-filled cleaners.
Less VOCS and More Family-Friendly
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are emitted from traditional paint products and primers. They can irritate your family and pets and also cause harm to the environment.
With N-Hance, most of our products are low-VOC. Plus, with our Lightspeed system, we’ll limit any exposure to lingering VOCs even further since your cabinets are cured instantly.
Even if another refinisher uses a low-VOC product, you’ll still be exposed to those fumes as your cabinets take weeks to cure. With our approach, this isn’t the case, so you can breathe easier.
