Loba’s Primer is a top-quality wood flooring primer designed to prepare the wood surface for a finish that is ready for foot traffic. This high-quality product plays a crucial role in preventing issues like burn marks and lap lines, which can negatively impact the visual appeal of a wood floor. What sets this primer apart is its user-friendly nature; it can be easily applied using a roller or t-bar thanks to its ideal consistency. Initially orange when applied, it dries to a clear finish, ensuring a seamless and aesthetically pleasing wood floor. In summary, Loba’s Primer is a highly effective solution for the preparation of wood floors.

Loba 1 Component Finishes

Loba’s one-component flooring finish is known for its user-friendly nature and outstanding wear resistance. This easy-to-apply product results in a professional-quality finish with exceptional durability. One-component finishes are typically preferred for their simplicity, making them a favored choice for both professionals and homeowners.

Loba 2 Component Finishes

Loba’s two-component floor finishes consist of a finish and a hardener that accelerates the drying process. This unique combination allows for rapid drying and curing in as little as 12 hours, facilitated by the chemical reaction between the two components. This reaction not only increases the finish’s hardness but also enhances its resistance to chemical stains, resulting in superior durability. However, the chemical transformation may require more skill to ensure a flawless application. As a result, two-component floor finishes are ideal for areas demanding exceptional protection and longevity.

Loba’s substrate primers or moisture barriers are invaluable for wood flooring installation projects, be it engineered or solid wood. These primers offer the flexibility to lay wood on diverse substrates without concerns about moisture content. They are compatible with both concrete and wood surfaces, ensuring a successful, long-lasting installation.
