Materials

The natural origin of materials is the safety warranty for Suwem products. North-European pinewood is a valuable wood for its great mechanical qualities. Pinewood has approximately 4,8% of wax and it is long-lasting. It is common for pine to turn yellow from the branch parts when the wood is finished with white colors. However, to prevent that from happening, we have been using primer to keep the look of the furniture stable, and we have improved it over the years. Wood is covered with water based lackers and varnishes that are up to EN 71-3 standards. They do not contain free formaldehydes.

Pine wood

Where do the most beautiful pine forests grow? Obviously in Southern Estonia! The beautiful woods grow straight and lean pines that yield high-quality timber. This is what the Suwem furniture is made of. The timber is covered with water-based varnishes and mordants.

The natural source of materials ensures the safety of Suwem products. The wood of the common pine is valuable commercial timber due to its good mechanical properties. Pine wood has an average resin content of 4.8% and ages well. Due to the nature of pine wood, it is common to see exposed knots in the wood turn yellow in the white boards over time. For the quality improvement the underlacquer has been taken into use in the production process. In 2013 for white color products, and 2014 for vanilla color.

Varnish

Varnish is used to protect timber from external forces.
Suwem furniture is finished with aqueous acrylic varnish solution. This does not contain free formaldehydes and so they are not released into the atmosphere during the drying process. The varnish complies with the requirements of the EN71-3 standard.

Poroloon

Poroloon ehk vahtpolüuretaan on pehme ja elastne vaht, mille mahust ligi 90% moodustab õhk. Tänu sellele on poroloon inimsõbralik, lõhnatu ja hingav materjal, mis ei tekita higistamist. Aja jooksul muutub valguse toimel porolooni värvus, kuid tema tehnilised omadused säilivad. Porolooni on mitut sorti, mis erinevad üksteisest pehmuse, tiheduse, tugevuse, elastsuse ja vastupidavuse poolest. Iga sort sobib teatud kindla toote jaoks. Kui vahel väidetakse, et poroloon ei ole vastupidav, on tõenäoliselt kasutatud selle toote jaoks sobimatut porolooni (eelkõige madalama hinna tõttu). Tegelikult on porolooni eluiga olenevalt kasutusalast kuni kümme aastat, eeldusel, et kasutatud on igale tootele tehnilistelt omadustelt parimat porolooni. Poroloon sobib kõigile, ka allergikutele. Porolooni sisaldava toote ostmisel tasub tunda huvi selle vastu, milliste omadustega porolooni on toote valmistamiseks kasutatud ning kas see vastab teie vajadustele.

Fabrics

Possible to add something fun also to the curtains!

Buttons  are made of plywood and decorated with nice and easy designs on both side. One side already has a coloured printing and the other side is for you to paint! Nicely sized buttons are fun to use for fastening.

Puuvill

Puuvill on hingav materjal, mis on keha vastas pehme ja mõnus. Suwem kasutab seda materjali madratsite katmiseks ja uute mängukardinte tekstiilides ja erinevates lisa toodete taskute valmistamisel. Igal ühel on oma lemmik värv… tuleb vaid valida endale sobiv. Pakume oma uuemaid tekstiiltooteid mahedates värvitoonides – valge-beez, sinine, roosa ja roheline. Uuendusena on saadaval ka linane variant.  Tekstiiltoodete kangad on allergiavabad ja vastavad Öko-Tex 100 standardile.

Vatiin

Vatiin on kohev materjal, mis muudab madratsi pehmeks ja mõnusaks. Vatiin säilitab väga hästi oma esialgse vormi, laseb õhku läbi ega lõhna. Madratsi pealmisel pool kasutame 15 mm vatiinikihti.

Suwem textile products – play curtains and other smaller and bigger textiles are sewn here, in Estonia, by using local workforce.

Happy usage! Your Suwem.
