Can ProForce® High Gloss Floor Finish be used on all types of floors?
This product can be used on all resilient flooring such as linoleum, rubber or vinyl tile. Product can also be used on sealed cork floors. ProForce® High Gloss Floor Finish is recommended for use on terrazzo and concrete that has been previously sealed. This product is not recommended for use on marble or wood floors.

The pH is 8.4.
Can this product be used on surfaces such as brick, slate, marble, granite, terrazzo, or concrete?
High Gloss Floor Finish is not recommended for use on these surfaces unless the surface has been sealed. Unsealed surfaces such as these will absorb the finish, leaving no shine to the surface. When used as directed, High Gloss Floor Finish can be used on these surfaces only if they have been previously sealed.
How much time is required to dry between coats of finish?
Typically, each coat of ProForce® High Gloss Floor Finish will dry in 15-20 minutes. The floor is dry when it no longer feels tacky and is completely transparent in all areas of the floor. In very dry conditions, a coat may dry in 8-10 minutes. In extremely unfavorable humidity or temperature conditions, it may take much longer.
Drying time between coats is variable depending on humidity, air temperature, room temperature, the surface, and the thickness of the coat. In addition, each coat needs more time than the previous coat to dry. As you add coats, it is ideal to wait twice as long as it took for the previous coat to dry before adding the next coat or to allow foot traffic.
Can adding more coats of ProForce® High Gloss Floor Finish enhance the product performance?
While not required to achieve a professional-looking finish with the product, applying additional coats will add increased depth, luster and durability to the product's performance.
