Coating Options

What are UV Cured Coatings?

After a floor is sanded back, three coatings of finish are applied. After the final coat is applied, a UV machine is used to dry, or ‘cure’, the coating – literally at the speed of light! A specific kind of finish is required to use with the UV Curing machine. Hence, we have 4 options you can choose from.

Floor Sanding Options

Floor Coating Options Explained

Option 1: Natural (Air dried – No UV Curing)

This is the cheapest of the four. It isn’t as durable as the other options where we use UV Cured technology. It also takes a while to dry, and fully cure. But it’s still a great finish and doesn’t have any toxic smell either. Much better than the old kind of toxic, chemical finish used traditionally in floor sanding. (We can still do that old style glossy floor finish if you really want it. But we don’t recommend it. The only benefit of it is that it allows the old-fashioned glossy shine, but it has a toxic smell.)

Option 2: Home Hybrid

The second option is called Home Hybrid. This our most popular option because it is cheaper than Options 3 and 4, but double the strength of Option 1. It includes a middle coat with Option 4, making it SR-9 durable, and a Final coat of option 1 for a more refined finish. It has no toxic smell, and you’ll be able to move back in the very next day. It also has a much more refined look than the commercial options. We recommend this option for most people because it is a great balance between cost and durability.

Option 3: Commercial Hybrid

The third option is called Commercial Hybrid. This is double the strength of Option 1, and more scratch-resistant than Option 2. It is SR-11 durable. The final coat is cured with UV like Option 4 so you can move in immediately (Cured at the speed of light – literally!). This is a great option for commercial floors.

Option 4: UV Rush

If you are looking for most durable option, this is it. UV Rush is a full commercial-grade finish. It comes in a modern Matt/Satin finish. It’s Commercial Grade SR-15, offers triple durability and you can move in immediately because it is cured instantly with industrial UV lights. It is the toughest, most scratch-resistant coating for timber floors today. No other coating can compare to this. If you want the best, you have found it. It ticks all the boxes. Its natural, non-toxic, has no smell and is hard as nails. It does cost a little more though.
