One-component finishes are generally simpler to use than multi-component options, making them a popular choice among professionals and homeowners alike.

Loba 2 Component Finishes

Loba’s two component floor finishes are a combination of a finish and a hardener that speeds up the drying process. These finishes can dry and be cured in as little as 12 hours, thanks to the chemical reaction between the two components. The chemical change makes the finish harder, more resistant to chemical stains, and more durable overall. However, the reaction also makes the finish slightly more difficult to spread and achieve a perfect finish. These features make two component floor finishes a good choice for areas that require extra protection and durability.
