Trend to Water-based Finishes
The trend for refinishing hardwood is more water-based finishes than oil-based finishes. The water-based has minimal smell and faster drying times than oil-based polyurethane. Oil-based has more solvents where it emits a strong odour and usually takes 48 hours to clear up.
The most popular water-based finish is the Swedish waterborne finish like Bona Traffic.
The Traffic outperforms any finish in the industry such as solvent-based, oil-modified or other waterborne finishes.
The Bona Traffic is quite scratch and chemical resistance at full cure. Being, waterborne, it has a very low oder. The Traffic is a green product and has low VOCs.
