Is UV Cured Hardwood Floor Refinishing Cost Efficient?

Yes, but it depends on the manufacturer and solid content. Thanks to technology advancements of SPDI, Inc and CureUV.com, the cost/sq. ft is very beneficial for the finisher because:

  • Reduced dry time, applications, and labor
  • Less chance for error
  • Full Finish Cost: $0.08-$0.30 / sqft
  • 100% Solids – No mixing, Less Shrinkage, and 3 times more coverage/gallon
  • No Lap Lines / Zipper Marks

Refinishing Over Dura Seal or Glitsa Type Coatings ($0.20/sqft):

  1. Waterborne/UV Curable Self-Sealing Topcoat 1 mil thickness
  2. Let water flash off 30-45 min
  3. Cure and DONE!

Refinishing Over UV Cured Coatings ($0.08/sqft):

  1. Tape off section if spot repair is needed
  2. Sand Scuff 220
  3. 100% Solids UV Curable Sealer/Topcoat 1 mil thickness
  4. Cure and DONE!

Refinishing Over Oil Based Stain ($0.20-$0.30/sqft):

  1. Oil Based Stain
  2. Dry for 24 hours
  3. Adhesion Promoter
  4. 100% Solids UV Curable Sealer/Topcoat 1-2 mil thickness (repeat steps 4 and 5 until proper build is achieved; Pre-finishers apply 5-10 total coats; most re-finishers apply 2-3 total coats)
  5. Cure and Sand, Scuff 220
  6. 100% Solids UV Curable Sealer/Topcoat 1 mil thickness
  7. Cure and DONE!

100% UV Curable Process (UV stain cost varies based on tint amount + $0.20-$0.30/sqft):

  1. Adhesion Promoter
  2. 100% Solids UV Curable Stain (1600sqft coverage)
  3. Cure and Sand, Scuff 220
  4. 100% Solids UV Curable Sealer/Topcoat 1-2 mil thickness (repeat steps 4 and 5 until proper build is achieved; Pre-finishers apply 5-10 total coats; most re-finishers apply 2-3 total coats)
  5. Cure and Sand, Scuff 220
  6. 100% Solids UV Curable Sealer/Topcoat 1 mil thickness
  7. Cure and DONE!
