very hard to use flooring finish
This is a very expensive product. I used it because the poly on my floor had flaked off because of water and I wanted something that wouldn't do that. However , there is a large list of do's and don'ts on their website and I found it a pain to use. The finish is very dark, the color of red wine. It changes the stain color a lot. They want 3 coats at a certain app rate and it was hard to apply it at that rate. For another user and me, you need more than 3 coats, but I only applied 3 because I ran out of time. With many coats ,the color is very dark. They say, keep a fan on for 7 days, we kept the fan on for at least 3 weeks. We had to do it in the fall when the temperatures lower. It has been 4 weeks and I can still smell the tung oil some. It bubbles easily, especially if the surface is rough. I would sand between coats, even through you don't have to. Right now it is very soft and fragile and easily scratched down to the wood. I used Deft stain with Tung oil and it is possible that the stain prevented the finish from penetrating into the wood. They want you to use the sealer first. If you want to the satin finish, you have to spend more money for the other product. I wouldn't use this again.
