Oil-based vs Water-based Polyurethane Floor Finish

By on January 4, 2017

What is the right type of finish for your wood floor?

You have decided to installed timber floor for your home. After browsing the vast variety of timber species available, finally selected your preferred timber species for your floor. Now, the question is whether to finish the floor with Oil-based or Water-based PU? Another decision to make that will decide the outcome of your timber floor for at least the next couple of years.

As of today, the trend of using Water-based PU has greatly overcome the usage of Oil-based. The reasons behind are as follows:

  1. Both Water-based and Oil-based do provides good protection; the major difference is the look of the floor after application. Water-based finish gives a natural wood look to shine through, especially on a lighter tone wood like Maple. While Oil-based finish slightly amber/yellow especially over time.
  2. Water-based PU dries faster with each application being able to dry in about 2 hours. As for Oil-based, it requires about 5 hours between each application.
  3. Water-based PU has lower odor and has near to zero VOC emissions in just a few weeks after application.

Some will still go for Oil-based despite the differences mentioned above because they want to achieve a very natural feel of the timber texture after application. Oil-based can achieve this finish because the coating penetrates into the timber and leaves the timber surface with a very natural wood feeling. Whereas, water-based actually forms a layer of coats on top of the timber surface which hardly can achieve this effect.

With that being said, our recommended LOBA floor coating from Germany has made a new breakthrough with a new range of coating. A water-based coating that can achieve a natural feel of timber after application, the 2K InvisibleProtect. A great solution for your timber floor finish with the best of both.

Solid Hardwood Flooring OR Engineered Hardwood Flooring?
The world’s first problem in deciding timber floor material…


Solid Hardwood Flooring OR Engineered Hardwood Flooring? Which is better?!

Wood has increasingly opt as a preferred choice for flooring material. In today’s market, the number of flooring with wood and wood-like materials is growing more and more. As for real wood flooring, our customers and consultants (like the Architects, Interior Designers & Specifiers) will ALWAYS ask whether solid hardwood or engineered hardwood is better? The answer is it depends. It depends on the location on where you plan to have timber floor and the important criteria that matters to you – for example the type of wood, size & length of floor strips, maintenance, costs, durability, eco-friendliness and so on.

Since there is no absolute answer, and you are open to the choices of solid hardwood and engineered hardwood flooring, personally we would recommend solid hardwood flooring as it definitely has a lot longer lifespan, looks better, and higher perceive value. As for maintenance, solid hardwood can be sanded & refinished MANY times over.
