or floor finishes. Look below for various types of finishes and the
brands that manufacture these finishes.
cured urathanes are the most durable of all the other products.
They are fast drying, resist yellowing, and are very flammable and
hazardous. After using these products you should be out of the
house for at least 48 hours. Because of the nature of these
products, they are only sold to the professional floor sander.
Brands include Glitsa, Synteko and Vermeister Kristal.
are two types of these urethanes: regular and non-yellowing.
In this product, the moisture helps cure the product (just the
opposite of the other finishes). The humidity in the the air
will affect the drying time. Again, because of the nature of
this product, we must restrict the sale to only the professional
floor sander. Niles Color Center only recommends Harco if
you plan on using Moisture Cure Urethanes.
are newer than the other finishes and are environmentally safe.
This type of finish is the fastest growing product in the flooring
industry as well as for the consumer. The product itself is
durable, almost odorless, and dries quickly. Due to the clear
color we have an amberizer that will give you the polyurethane look
with a water product and the ease of water clean-up. Brands
include Basic Coatings, Bona Kemi, Dura Seal, Infinity, and Diamond.
Polyurethanes are the
most common floor finish. It has an amber cast and ambers more
with time in most cases. Less light will help the finish amber
faster. Our Niles Center super poly (90, 92, 95) will have a
slight ambering effect. Brands for this type of finish include
Basic Coatings, Dura Seal, Harco, Varathane, and Zar.
Wax is a very good
protection. However, before you put wax on you must be sure
that you want wax. Unfortunately, once you put the wax on you
must take it all off before putting any other finish over the floor.
Waxes that we carry are made by Dura Seal.
