What is the most durable Poly you guys have come across for floors? As of the past 3-4 years and VOC laws I see the products getting worse and worse. Now a good Deft product says only available in Canada I have just read.
I use plenty of deft poly, especially for stairs, sorry that you cant get it south of the border. A friend of mine does alot of floors and he uses Fabulon brand poly from metal 5 gallon cans, but I don't know if you can get it down there, it is really good stuff.
For wood floors there are 2K ceramic modified polyurethanes. The 1K urethanes are made from urethane dispersions which can yield a much cheaper paint that you can still call a urethane. The 2K formulations that are VOC compliant are pretty expensive. We sell a 90% solids product (not for wood) that runs around $180/gallon. Again... not for wood but I would expect someone to have a similar cost and solids for wood. Keep in mind that the old Aromatic Moisture Cured urethanes were only about 30% solids... SO... while the cost per gallon may be high it's still a good value when you calculate the cost per dry mil on the floor.
