Wood Flooring Finishes

Semi Gloss Radcoat

RADCOAT is an aliphatic waterbourne UV Urethane exclusively designed for onsite heavy commercial applications where down times are limited. Typical applications are hospitals, casinos, factories, restaurants, correctional facilities, shopping centers, nursing homes, etc. RADCOAT Waterbourne UV Urethane is designed for instant cure. Contrast this to conventional coatings where cure rates vary from seven to thirty days -- which allows time for your floor to be damaged or to exhibit early wear or loss of performance.

Satin Radcoat

RADCOAT is an aliphatic waterbourne UV Urethane exclusively designed for onsite heavy commercial applications where down times are limited. Typical applications are hospitals, casinos, factories, restaurants, correctional facilities, shopping centers, nursing homes, etc. RADCOAT Waterbourne UV Urethane is designed for instant cure.

Pall Oil 2K

Magic Oil 2K is a perfect hybrid of natural oils and waxes. This unique two component finish produces a uniform matte, velvety surface that repels dirt and water. It is suitable for all raw wood floors, solid or engineered, solid cork flooring and is rated for use on radiant heat floor systems. Magic Oil’s rapid drying properties allow for refinishing to be completed quickly, making it a perfect product to use for commercial applications.

Glista Swedish Finish

Glitsa MultiKote™ Swedish Finish is a two-component fast drying conversion varnish designed for residential and commercial hardwood floor applications. Glitsa MultiKote is designed to be used as a self-sealing system over itself.

Monocoat Finish

Free of water and VOC
Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus does not contain water: its components are mainly natural products. Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus doesn't contain volatile organic components (= VOC free). Colors and protects through molecular bonding Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus adheres with the first microns of the wood by molecular bonding (with no film forming nor saturation). This is why the consumption is much lower than with a traditional wood finishing system.

Durable protection
The molecular bonding creates a durable, long lasting protection. To obtain this molecular bonding it is very important to strictly respect this reaction time of a couple of minutes. The better the fibres are bonded, the stronger the protection will be.

No overlaps
Once all free cellulose fibres are molecularly bonded, surplus product will no longer be accepted by the wood or the bonded Monocoat layer itself. This is why overlaps or starting marks are avoided.




SUSTAINABILITY
How to chose a coating that will minimize the overall environmental impact? Using a floor coating with higher durability will extend the maintenance cycle, meaning fewer coats need to be applied over time, lowering the environmental impact. Using a product that has been engineered to have a lower environmental impact by lowering the VOC content will reduce the hazardous chemical content thus lowering airborne toxins. Using a product with higher solids content will mean applying fewer coats, therefore lowering the environmental impact of the job.

Sustainability is based on the belief that we can coexist with the environment if we work to ensure our actions are not harmful to it. We need to improve our environment and at worst case do it no harm.

Here at Antique floors we believe in environmental sustainability, that it encompasses actions to ensure the health and continuation of ecological systems, that it spurs development and helps ensures economic growth.

Simply put, environmental protection and economic growth can go hand in hand.
