Aluminum oxide urethane coatings are High-performance hardwood floor finishes that treats the wood by subjecting it to as many as seven passes of ultraviolet light to cure the urethane to the wood and preserve its color. This creates an extremely durable highest quality hardwood floor. These finishes, stains and coatings are applied and dried in a factory-controlled production environment. This process results in hardwood that performs better over time and is easier and faster to install than non-factory-applied hardwood finishes.

Site-finished floors typically receive only 2-3 coats of polyurethane. Afterwards they are allowed to cure by air drying which results in a less durable floor. By applying the aluminium oxide in a factory setting, the material can be applied with the strictest uniformity. Aluminum Oxide is one of the hardest materials on Earth with a 9 on the Mohs Scale rating. In fact, rubies and saphires are forms of aluminum oxide with impurities. The material also is completely water insoluble, which means that Aluminum Oxide helps wood resist water infusing. The material is completely safe and not listed on the EPA hazardous chemicals list.
