Antiquity – Natural Oil: Derived from plant seeds this finish allowed new civilizations to seal wood floors. The downside was that they required frequent reapplications and could not protect the wood from common staining agents.

19th Century Hard Wax Oil: – This was a revolutionary step forward in that with the development of petroleum paraffin wax was now very affordable. Wax was now mixed into the natural oils making the coatings thicker and the reapplication of oil less frequent. However, the downside of vulnerability to common staining agents, coffee, tea, wine, mustard, etc., still remained. This product arrives at the job site primed not fully finished requiring a coat of oil to be applied adding cost. This solvent based oil is flammable and requires long drying times after application

1960’s UV Oil: Closely resembling polyurethane UV Oil eliminate dissues with common staining agents. However, they do not have the resistance to wear of modern polyurethanes and are thus susceptible to premature wear. Maintenance systems comprised of acrylic polishes are prone to build up.
