The variety of finishes available for timber floor sanding and cork flooring can be confusing to many consumers. Hard wax oils, Oil Modified Urethanes, Solvent & Water Borne Polyurethanes. Predominantly, Water & Solvent Borne finishes are used to complete most timber and cork floors due to their low maintenance & resistance to wear. At Moreton’s, we use a range of differing coating solutions to ensure your floors have the best finish possible and look stunning.

Water borne polyurethane

With major development and access to world leading product water borne finishes are making a large impact on the Australian market. Waterborne product was generally selected for use due to its low odour and quick drying times. Now it is selected for its optimal adhesion, minimal side bonding, clarity, extremely good resistance to wear & chemicals along with its well-known low odour and quick drying times. Water borne coatings will darken slightly with age. Water Borne finishes are replenish able with a maintenance coat when required. The advantages of this product have now overcome the higher cost associated with the product which we now see reflected in the growing request for these products.

Solvent borne polyurethane

The most common of flooring finish with its characteristic full body gloss, grain enhancing warmth, long wearing and a smell that will take your head off has been the mainstay of the flooring industry for many years. However its popularity is slowly dropping due to a growing demand for a more environmentally friendly finish and a shift away from the high gloss finish that requires almost daily cleaning. The low cost and true high gloss of the product will ensure that it keeps a share of the market.

Hard wax oils

Hard wax oils are made of a combination of vegetable oils, natural resins, beeswax and least aggressive solvents available. The oil and wax combinations are made on a base of natural, sustainable raw materials including linseed oil, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, beeswax, carnauba and candelilla wax.

Hard wax oils are micro-porous which allows the timber to breath, this means climate changes are accommodated. The full body finish does not create a skin so each board can move individually without the concern of edge bonding. They will not flake, blister or peel and tend to be non-yellowing. The hard wax oils will enhance the grain of the timber, all while keeping the natural timber feel.
Hard wax oils are replenish-able with a maintenance coat.

Impact Oils

Impact Oils are a premium, two-part solution crafted from natural ingredients. When applied to timber flooring, impact oils accentuate the intricate characteristics of each floorboard, resulting in a subtle lustre that’s both effortless to maintain and stunning to behold. This finish not only safeguards your floor but also exudes a captivating visual appeal. Impact oils showcase the minimal ageing of the coating, allowing the true colours of the timber to dominate the floor’s appearance. Thanks to their unique application, these oils are unlikely to cause any ghosting effect.
