A water-based floor sealant is a type of protective coating used to seal and protect wooden floors. Waterborne" means that the product is water-based, which distinguishes it from solvent-based sealers. Water-based sealers are more environmentally friendly, emitting fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than solvent-based alternatives, making them safer for indoor use.
They are designed to form a transparent protective layer on the surface of the floor, creating a barrier that resists scratches, stains and everyday wear and tear. What's more, they enhance the natural beauty of the wood by giving a gloss, satin or matt finish, depending on the finish chosen. These water-based sealers are widely used in parquet renovation projects, and offer much-appreciated durability and ease of maintenance.
