Why its Great: It's fast. It's affordable. Its Safe and anyone can apply it with a mop and brush. It comes in dozens of natural wood tones so you can stain and seal the wood in the same coat, rather than staining first and then coming back the next day to recoat. It has a very beautiful natural satin sheen and gets hard fast. 2-4 coats can be applied in the same day with practically NO ODOR that night. Its unusual for a high grade film forming finish like this to have such a natural and preferrable sheen to it.

Why is Aqualine Satin a Healthy Sustainable Floor Finish?
The select, 100% pure acrylic in Aqualine Satin is of the highest grade available and is very safe. Pregnant women, babies, kids and those who are chemically sensitive tend to do very well with this product. Yet floor finish contractors love it because it works great and has the same application method they are used to.
It's a gorgeous floor finish that is POLYURETHANE FREE! No isocyanates. NO NMP! No Ethylene Glycol! This becomes apparent as soon as you realize there is practically no odor and the floor is finished! Ready to be used. The same day! WOW!
Aqualine Satin is a floor finish made from a pure non toxic acrylic. Pure non toxic acrylic resin is highly durable and carries a low ecological footprint. Certain types of acrylic are very safe when carefully formulated. For instance, joint replacements, dental implants, suntan lotion, fleece clothing, aquariums. All of these are safe for human beings (and fish) and this is well proven over time.

Toxicity Information on Polyurethane and Floor Finish Production.
Bhopal Isocyanates : This link studies the Bhopal isocyanate chemical disaster. To be fair this particlular isocyanate [MIC] may no longer be used in commonly produced polyurethane today. However, the isocyanate chemical class as a whole is poorly studied in humans over long periods of time. We can all learn from from what happened there and God bless all who were harmed.
MDI and TDI are commonly used diisocyanates in polyurethane production today. Human studies, aquatic fate and and environmental reactions are things to look closely for. There are many good uses of poly but (as this pro industry paper indicates) more must be learned.
