This blog post contains all the information you need about Synteko Classic and scratching.

Harder Floors are More Susceptible

Many people assume that softer floors are more susceptible to scratches, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Softer finishes don’t highlight scratches and wear through more rapidly, while harder finishes like Synteko Classic are likelier to sustain damage during the curing process. This means you need to be extra careful to avoid exposing the surface to damaging elements.

Being Aware of Damaging Elements

There are multiple ways in which an uncured Synteko Classic floor finish can become damaged. The most common involves dragging grains of sand or grit across the surface from shoes and chair legs. This can scratch and tear the hard brittle finish of Synteko Classic. In addition, shoe scuffs can leave permanent black marks on the floor finish that tarnishes its aesthetic appeal.

A Cured Surface Provides Sufficient Protection

Known for their hardness and resilience, cured Synteko Classic finishes boast sufficient strength to repel scratches and other forms of damage. The entire film can dissipate the force from scratches and scuffs, minimising the incidence of damage. This ensures that your floor will look its best for many years to come.
