Styrene

Conventional floor finish contains a toxic chemical known as polystyrene, which was traditionally used to adhere floor finish to a floor. Unfortunately, it is a formula which not only incurs high labor and chemical costs, but is a dangerous pollutant to our environment. The primary concern about polystyrene is that it contains styrene, a carcinogen that has acute and long term chronic health effects. Furthermore, this conventional formula does not have the adequate strength or durability to support new types of building structures and flooring, along with the soils and airborne contaminates that have emerged since it was developed over 50 years ago. This conventional method requires constant reapplication at least every three years, which results in over-stripping and consequently reducing the durability of the floor finish.
