Loba-Wakol, a prominent name in the hardwood floor industry with a global presence in 40 countries, provides a comprehensive range of top-quality products for the finishing and protection of wood flooring. Founded over 90 years ago in Germany and now headquartered in North Carolina, Loba-Wakol has built a strong reputation for its industry expertise and exceptional products.
The history of Loba Germany traces back to 1922, established by Wilhelm Hornung and Dr. Max Fischer. Initially focused on producing floor cleaners and stains, the company diversified its product line, including household candles, shoe cream, ski wax, and dubbin. Over the years, it simplified its original name, “Vereinigte Wachswarenfabriken AG Hornung und Dr. Fischer,” to its current form.
Wakol, an industry leader with over six decades of adhesive manufacturing experience, is renowned for its high-quality adhesives. Beyond adhesives, Wakol offers non-chemical alternatives. Notably, their PU 280 Moisture Barrier is among the top products. Wakol places a strong emphasis on meeting “green” industry standards, ensuring the safety of its products for both consumers and contractors.
Loba is celebrated for its premium finishes and oils, while Wakol excels as a leading provider of adhesives, including moisture barriers and sausage glue, crucial for the installation of hardwood floors. Both Loba and Wakol present versatile product lines suitable for various floor types, such as parquet, cork, and PVC.
