Synteko Coatings


Synteko ClassicSynteko Classic is a fast-drying, two-component, acid-curing hardwood floor finish for interior use based on modified amino and alkyd resins in a solvent mixture.

This finish has an amber colour, enhancing natural wood colours. It is a truly unique system with moderate VOC compared to conventional coatings. It's extremely hard, solid finish when cured cannot be re-activated or damaged by other solvents. Despite it's hardness it is largely immune to edge bonding in new timbers and less prone to rejection.

The coating cures with incredible chemical adhesion and is so hard that a 2 coat system suffices on most timbers. Where the air flow is appropriate, the drying time (around 1 hour) is such that even three coats, if neccessary, can be applied in one day saving you time and money. Available in Gloss, Satin and Matte.

Synteko Natural CoatingsSYNTEKO NATURAL is of a family of products often referred to as “Burnishing Oils”. Unlike traditional polyurethane “film build” type finishes, a burnished oil fills the grain of the timber, penetrating it deeply with protective bonding. The final burnishing process hardens the top of the timber. It creates a more natural, smooth and closed-grain look and feel .

SYNTEKO NATURAL Oil is a solvent free, faintly smelling high solid hard oil. This matte natural oil finish with its high (100%) solid content has superior wear and tear properties covering approximately three times more area than other wood floor oils. It has excellent coverage, with 40m2 per litre achievable on harder, more dense timbers.


Synteko Re-Cover natural coatingSYNTEKO NATURAL, unlike most other oils, has ZERO VOCs (Volatile Organic Compound).

Another feature of SYNTEKO NATURAL is that it can accept tints, not only timber stains, but also lime-washes and other exotic tones such as “steel blue”.

The burnished oil look is being used and specified in an increasing number of commercial and domestic projects including museums, galleries and public halls, due to its ease of use and maintenance, its environmental credentials, and the fact that it simply looks superb.

A thinner version of SYNTEKO NATURAL is available as a maintenance pack, applied with a spray bottle for easy re-buffing.

There are substantial commercial benefits of using this product, among which is the durability and appearance of the floor can be regularly maintained without expensive and cumbersome re-sanding and coating.
