Backorder : Satin Kit, Late March
Vermeister ZERO VOC is the only water-based polyurethane finish made without VOCs, solvents, NMP or other toxic ingredients. This is an extremely low-odor product that's safe for everyone, including those with allergies and chemical sensitivities. Made only for wood flooring, Vermeister ZERO VOC is available in a matte (15 degree), satin (30 degree) or semi-gloss (60 degree) sheen level.
Unlike oil-based or low VOC water-based polyurethanes, ZERO VOC contains no hazardous or even questionable chemicals that can off-gas and pollute indoor environments. It is the purest, cleanest polyurethane available. GEV, which is the most respected third-party certifier in Europe, has given ZERO VOC an EC1 Plus rating, which is the highest rating possible for ultra low emissions. Furthermore, ZERO VOC is the first specific product for wood flooring to join the Super Compliant Architectural Coatings Manufacturer's list. SCAQMD Rule 1113. Also the product and hardener has no hazard labels.
Applying ZERO VOC applies just like other polyurethanes. Three coats are recommended over raw wood for most applications. It can be applied as a one-part or two-part system with a non-toxic catalyst called ZERO VOC BOOST for a harder and more moisture resistant finish. Apply it with a roller, brush or T bar. If properly covered, this product will maintain a pot life of seven days even with the catalyst!
This kit contains both the ZERO VOC polyurethane finish (1 gallon) with the ZERO VOC BOOST catalyst (8.96 oz).
NOTE: Do not use alcohol, ammonia or detergents for cleaning this surface. Use Vermeisters Detergente Neutro or any neutral pH cleaner with a damp mop. Our Blissfully Clean clay cleaner works great for scuff marks.
NOTE2: While this product is non-toxic it will not block emissions if applied over other oil-based or water-based toxic surfaces. For that purpose, we recommend AFM Safecoat Polyureseal BP.
NOTE3: Like all polyurethanes, this takes about 10-14 days for full cure. That means light traffic, i.e. careful use in about 3-5 days.
We've been waiting for decades for someone to finally make a completely safe polyurethane for flooring. Now Vermeister has raised the bar and given us all the benefits of a new product that can be used by everyone without negatively impacting the indoor air quality. Congratulations to them for this achievement. This product has almost no odor when wet and none when completely dry.
