I built my own baby crib out of pine. I want to stain it and of course i want to to be baby safe. My wife wants it to have color as well. I was looking at the bio poly with color. My questions are is the bio poly with color safe for a baby crib and does something else need to be applied before the bio poly of after the bio poly?
Walnut Plank Countertops, I want to illuminate the wood grain and protect from steam? Also... to finish Ash but keep the light wood color, not turn yellow.
I am doing 2 kitchen projects.
1. Walnut plank countertops--I would like a food safe , easily repairable finish for these plank tops. I don't really want a finish like a lacquer. More of a natural rub on finish that I could then easily sand down a scraped up section of wood and rub some new finish on.
2. I am making a range hood cover and the "skin" will be with reclaimed white oak planks. For this I just want a clear finish but I need something that can handle the steam and heat from the stove and can be wiped down clean.
What do you recommend for these two applications?
I'm building a black locust deck and the customer wants grey patina look on the deck. Area being done is some total shade some total sun. Customer doesn’t want the huge variation and doesn’t want to wait a season to change.
The deck is in Chicago area.
What's the best way to stain this deck? How long will it last? What kind of maintenance should we expect?
I have a standard sized (5'x7') bathroom in my home that is difficult to keep the mold at bay in, on the ceiling and walls. I'd like to finish it with something that would paint over this mold and provide an inhospitable environment for future growth.
The existing wall surface is textured (I could smooth out to a degree) and painted with a latex paint.
I estimate the surface area to be less than 200 square feet (~170).
Which products would you recommend and the quantity? What would the price be, including shipping to Idaho, zip code 83301?
Thanks much for your time!
We would like to have hardwood flooring installed (about 550 Sq. Ft.) but our daughter is unable to clear toxins from her body. We also need it to be waterproof as we have older dogs who sometimes have accidents so we would need to wet mop. We spoke to a hardwood dealer who said there is no way to use hardwood under our circumstances. Would your product truly work for our situation and how would we find a contractor who would be able to apply it?
I need instruction steps for application of Bio Poly Natural on a large wood home.
What's the best way to apply the finish to hardwood trim?
How many coats?
Sand between coats?
Finish coat a different product?
Where can I buy BioPoly in quantity in southern Maine?
What is the best high gloss finish to replace toxic lacquers in a UV Finishing Line Machine? We need to fill in deep wood grain of Wenage.
Can your product be used in the UV line?
Can I use your products as a Sealer. Then normal UV treatment Sealer. Primer filler. Topcoat . 90 gloss coat.
We use wood with name Wenage , that has very wide grain and give us trouble with finishing top coat 90 Gloss surface.
The lacquer will sink in to material and the surface will be like ripples .
Will your product penetrate in to the fibres more efficient./
Tell me the lacquer of your products I need to seal the fibres.
What is the best natural floor finish for wide plank New England Pine floors? We're active with kids, dogs and want a rustic pine floor look.
We have a 2,400 square foot home which we just laid unfinished wide plank New England Pine throughout. The floors are on the soft side (very easily dented). We have two young boys, a small dog, and live on 4 acres. We are a very active family, high traffic. We are located in Raleigh, NC.
We went with the pine knowing they were soft and easily dented, but wanted more of a farmhouse feel and didn't want to feel "worried" about spending a lot of money to then have our boys scratch and dent the floors.
We'd love something with no odor as it's a DIY project, fast drying, stain-look, and two part (separate stain and sealer applications). These are our preferences. Please give us some idea as to what we should be looking for.
Thank you so much for such a thorough explanation of the Bio Poly and Nano Tech products. It is really helpful!
For now, we may go with 1-3 coats of Bio Poly and at a later moment use the Nano Tech. We are interested in finding out if the Bio Poly truly needs a huge machine buffer to work it into the floor or if we could use something smaller instead. Online we see many battery operated, small hand buffers- but are unsure if these are only used to polish cars or if they can replace a hardwood floor buffer. Do you happen to know if any hand tools can replace a huge buffer?
We don't mind if it takes extra time.
Also, what type of brush would allow us to get the smoothest finish?
I would have preferred an engineered pre-finished pine but find the choices very limited and expensive. If I go with solid pine unfinished, it is more cost effective but I am concerned about the quality and safety of the finish.
I prefer a matte look to the finish. Concern for wear and trying to avoid daily vacuuming, I am looking for a natural look with durability. I don't think I can get that with an oil seal finish.
What do you suggest? I saw on your site a pine floor stated to be finished with the bio poly and topped with nano tech. With the nano tech on top?
Does that make it shinier?
Does your finish end up as hard as a prefinished floor? Is it safer?
I am so tired of doing research and want to get on with getting the job done but I don't want to make the wrong choice.
FYI, This would be for my 2nd floor, about 750-850 sq ft at this time. There is much less wear and tear on the 2nd fl. If everything goes well there, I would consider it for the first floor .
HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON.
many thanks for your input,
