We recently had our gym floor sanded, repainted and sealed in October of last year. The paint is coming off the lettering and logo on the floor. The company changed from oil base to water based. Why is the paint peeling off the floor?
Gym floor covers should never be used on a freshly finished floor until at least three weeks after the last coat of finish has been applied. For complete curing, the finish surface must be exposed to oxygen in the ambient air. Covering the floor during this process would deny the finish of oxygen needed to complete the reaction. This may result in a partially cured coating with poor physical properties.
Poloplaz recommends using the Hardwood Floor Cleaner on a daily basis.
We have a gym floor that we refinish (oil based product) every year around Christmas. We are having troubles with it being very slick right now (basketball games and practice for a month and a half before we can re-finish). We have cleaned several times with a very fine scrubber (very low abrasive) but it really doesn’t help too much. We try cleaners that are not to leave a residue and also used wet towels on dry-mops. Nothing is working. My question is, is there a product that we could add to something that would restore the tackiness? It can actually be quite dangerous.
