Solvent Based Polyurethane and Oil Modified Urethane
Solvent polyurethane and oil modified urethane coatings bring out the warmth & colour of timber which suits a wide range of homes. To see the difference in Solvent Based and Water Based Polyurethane head over to our timber types and species page
They are known for being an extremely tough and resilient coating for solid timber floorboards & parquetry. Solvent based polyurethane can also be used on engineered/floating floors and cork. See sanding and polishing
Our team in the showroom can show you the difference between a water based and solvent based finish.
Water Based Polyurethane
Water based polyurethane keeps the timber colour lighter than solvent based finishes giving a lower sheen look. Environmental compliance is a common reason for choosing to use a water based finish as they give off low VOC’s. With low odour and fast drying time it is a popular option of coating.

All gloss levels are available in each of the polyurethane products:
