Waterbased coatings typically have half as much VOC content as the traditional oil-based polyurethane finishes.
Water-based coatings dry in 2 to 3 hours. Oil-based dries in 8 to 24 hours. Multiple coats of water-based finish can be applied in one day with job taking less time and back in use faster.
Water-based coatings take only 7 days to come to full cure as compared to 30 days with oil-based coatings. Our preferred water-based finish is 90% cured in only 24 hours, which means less downtime before the area is safe for use.
Water-based finishes retain a clear, non-yellowing appearance. Oil-based finishes will turn an unsightly yellow with age and UV exposure.
Test results concluded that the water-based finishes were 5 times more resistant than the average commercial-grade oil-based urethane.
