Gym Floor Finish AmberingDecember 2, 2013
Gym floor finish ambering Is a common complaint made by facilities managers and owners, not many people especially in California, like the aged look that occurs over time with gym floors. The aged look is a preference mostly seen on the east coast where oil finishes are used, take for example the Boston Garden gym floor, it looks old but thats the preferred look.
All Gym floor finish ambering takes place over time weather it is an epoxy, oil or water based finish. Oil based finish will amber at a faster rate than water based finishes, after the first year of a newly sanded gym floor the color change is fairly noticeable. While water based finish has grown in popularity over oil finishes for many reasons, water based finishes are still prone to amber just at a much slower rate than other finishes.
