Hardwood Floor Coatings or the Finish that protects your floor, What are they and what are the differences , What should be avoided and why was that not explained to me:

Basic Coatings Street Shoe(TM) , Bona Mega, Trafiic(TM), Glitsa Self Seal or MAX(TM)

description: an opaque or  creamy coating witch is a two component catalyst non slip finish designed for gymnasium use well suited to maple and harder species

performance: the expected life time of a three coat system on a maple or harder hardwood floor is seven to twelve years max less if you use their sealer.

analysis : surface allow water to penetrate and even has the appearance of being wet when washed with water, cannot handle the lacquer thinner test, regular interval maintenance required

low odour is deceiving as the chemicals used are a greater risk to the respiratory system than any other coating Except M37 products the moisture cured urethane or MEK products( methyl ethyl keytone)

Delivery: first coat on bare wood 350-400 Square feet per gallon, additional coats up to 800plus SQFT per gallon ***non trowellable

Polyurethane: Dura seal(TM), Magee(TM), Polo Plaz (TM)Magnum low voc urethanes

description:   polyurethane finishes are now on there way out as of Sept 2011 urethane are an amber oil based product  where Varsol or paint thinner is the base the most dangerous to humans. has been given a bad rap by contractor who use the incompatible lacquer sanding sealer and then roll one coat over the lacquer sanding sealer even before it is dry as nothing sticks to laquer but lacquer itself not even shellac or gum lacquer sticks over a dry lacquer coat, this method produces what looks like a Glitsa Swedish finish after the full cure( see more on Conversion varnish below) except that after a little as one year it will turn completely amber and dries extremely brittle.

performance: If you  wash with hot water you can cause this to fail within one year I see most people get about five years  through a sea of yellow or amber

Delivery: at least five hundred feet per gallon with a waterbase applicator of 8mm roller ,cannot be use directly on bare wood without doubling or tripling the drying time of 12 hour ususally *(trowellable)

Conversion Varnishes: Glitsa Swedish finish(TM)

description: The only conversion varnish coating in A three component system with a choice of limiting the amber quality in the undercoating, full choice of sheen in the Gold Seal top coating  ,

 Protection is achieved from the heavy volume of 275 Sqft per gallon or greater per coat

curing process cause and effect is to lose the heavy built up look and tone down to a soft and subtle look , The nicest looking floor finish as it wears

Performance: the standard coating  three coats will last 30 to 50 years, survives the lacquer thinner test completely unaffected

Analysis: Water cannot penetrate the finish itself, amber yellow tone is only affected by sun light , humidity in extreme condition , finish is more elastic than others completely trowellable

Delivery: when applied with a Glitsa (TM) Brush or lambs wool applicator  275 Sqft per gallon  cannot be meticulously painted or  applied thinner without complications
