Basic Coatings LightForce UV floor coating

There are a number of UV floor coatings products on the market that you can use use in conjunction with UV floor curing equipment. So why should you go with Basic Coatings LightForce over another UV coatings product?

LightForce’s Foor Cure Guide Technology acts as a foolproof mechanism.

LightForce prevents you from making mistakes on the job in two ways:

1) When you’re working with UV light for extended periods of time, the glare can make it difficult to notice any spots of finish that you missed. But Basic Coatings LightForce makes it easy to see the uncured finish on the floor.

2) If curing a large open area its almost impossible to stay in a straight line with the UV light machine. Somewhere along the line there is a possibility of an area not being cured you’ve begun wavering without realizing it. The missed finish in these areas is recognized immediately thanks to LightForce’s Cure Guide Technology. This comes in handy anywhere, but it’s especially useful in big spaces like gymnasiums where you’re more apt to stray off your path due to fatigue.

Even if you do end up missing a few spots, under a toekick or in a corner of the room, for example, there’s no need to worry. Just go back and cure it using the handheld HID Ultraviolet Mako unit.

You can even cure LightForce if your client alerts you to the missed spot a week or two later. The finish will remain pink until it’s hit with the correct amount of UV light.

Only the intense amount of UV light emitted by HID machines is capable of curing LightForce, so you don’t have to worry about the sun’s UV rays interfering with the process.

LightForce is a foolproof finish through-and-through.

LightForce has a very mild smell, which allows your residential clients to be able to stay in their homes while you finish their floors, saving them time and money. Even if you charge your clients an extra dollar or more per square foot, your clients could end up saving the amount of money they would have spent on a hotel stay.
