Topic tags/keywords: question finishing

Howdy,

I made some floor transition pieces out of flooring. I had to strip the finish to match the wood floor. I don’t poly will stand up to foot traffic. As a matter of fact, I can’t think of anything that would stand up to it. Recommendations?

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

There are some 2 part lacquer products designed specifically for high traffic flooring. They are used for gymnasiums and basketball floors etc. Not sure about availability on your side of the pond but there must be a local equivalent product.

Poly is good but you have to recoat it every few years. These engineered floors by Harris Tarkette have a very tough finish- I forget what is in it- but I think it is only factory applied and it is catalyzed. That stuff hold up like iron. that basket ball court finish above, from the other Jim, sounds like something you could apply your self.

Howdy Jim,

I’m guessing it’s the aluminum oxide finish. Tougher than planer blades, or so I’m told. I had to get down and dirty with a belt sander to strip it off. Anything else is like tissue paper in comparison.
