The Material

Eastman Cerfis™ technology is a revolutionary coating system that provides unmatched surface and substrate solutions. Cerfis is the industry’s most precise, consistent, and customizable coating system available. Its unique qualities contribute to the development of products that are beautiful, functional, and cost effective. Cerfis technology can be used with multiple types of substrates and coatings, like trim and molding.

Finished Elegance™ no-paint moulding and trim from Woodgrain Millwork is a new product made with Eastman Cerfis™ technology. Unlike primed trim that feels rough and requires painting, Finished Elegance™ interior moulding and trim has a smooth silky feel, added durability, and is resistant to scratching, chipping, and moisture. When used with Finished Elegance™ caulk, it needs no priming or painting. The North America licensee is Woodgrain Millwork. 

KOTA™ "Paint No More" utilizes Eastman’s unique Cerfis Technology in it ground-breaking prefinished MDF molding product, removing the need to prime and paint during or after installation, saving time and money. KOTA™ can be pinned or glued into place using the simple 3-step KOTA™ CUT, FIX & FILL PROCESS.
