What Are The Benefits?

Wood floor sealers, particularly in water-based coatings, the main job is to provide an excellent bonding coat to the substrate while providing a suitable bonding site for the topcoat being used. Sealers provide proper adhesion in several different ways chemically, such as with acrylics or urethanes designed for their superior adhesive properties or crosslinking agents providing a boost to adhesion. Stains, paints, and various types of wood can provide adhesion challenges that most topcoats are ill-equipped to handle. Unfortunately, adhesion issues may not manifest themselves right away but only surface when the floor begins to undergo seasonal expansion and contractions. Proper use of a sealer can prevent unhappy customer complaints about peelings months after the job has been completed.

 

Another benefit of a sealer is its inherent cost-effectiveness on the job. A sealer can provide inexpensive build coats, quench “thirsty” wood or fill small gaps in the floor before application of an expensive topcoat. Substituting an extra coat of sealer for a top coat will most likely provide the same or more film depth at a final cost advantage. The cost-effectiveness of a sealer is never more apparent than when using an all water-based system and “knocking down” grain raise. If you are not using a sealer, you are screening off some of that expensive topcoat, literally sanding your money away.
