Floor Coating Finishes
A selection of popular Rosenfeld Kidson Rubio Monocoat colours on American White Oak (over 40 standard colours available). Colour samples are representative only. Natural timber colour variation, grain structure and the quantity of coating applied will determine the final colour achieved. We encourage testing a liquid sample on the timber being coated, before committing to your choice.
When flooring is site sanded the options for coatings include oils and solvent or water-based polyurethanes. Depending on the type of floor installed, location of the floor in the house, locality of the house and climate, some floor finishes will be more appropriate than others.
Traditional oil based finishes and hard wax oils provide a more subdued natural appearance. Solvent and water based polyurethanes tend to be more wear resistant and come in a wide range of gloss levels.
Two coating systems, that are popular in the New Zealand market, include Rubio Monocoat Oil and Handley Industries' Polyurethanes.
RUBIO MONOCOAT OIL PLUS 2C
Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C is a molecular-binding oil that provides durable colour and protection in one single layer. It is easy to use, non-overlapping and easy to maintain.

HANDLEY’S WATERBORNE POLYURETHANE
Handley’s Aquapol represents the latest in waterborne polyurethane technology as a non-toxic, one-pot, ready-to-use, high performance floor finish that rivals many of its solvent-based counterparts.
Aquapol dries rapidly through water evaporation and polymer coalescence. This allows several coats to be applied in one day with no lingering fumes and with little inconvenience to the home owner or
Aquapol is 100% polyurethane and as such, exhibits the typical polyurethane characteristics of exceptional chemical, abrasion and water resistance. Aquapol acts as its own sealer and finish, no base coat is required and may also be over-coated with standard Handley solvent based polyurethanes.
