UV Rush: Maximum durability. Instant use.

Rush is a premium UV cured polyurethane coating from Loba, a leading manufacturer of wood floor finishes. Rush is a high-performance, water-based coating designed to protect wood floors from wear and tear, while also enhancing the natural beauty of the wood.

One of the unique features of Rush is its fast curing time. Unlike traditional polyurethane coatings that can take several days to dry and cure, Rush can be cured in just a few hours, allowing floors to be finished quickly and efficiently. This is particularly beneficial in commercial settings, where downtime can be costly.

Another key feature of Rush is its exceptional durability. It is specifically formulated to resist scratches, scuffs, and other types of damage, making it an ideal choice for high-traffic areas such as commercial floors.

Additionally, Rush offers excellent chemical resistance, ensuring that it will stand up to the harsh chemicals commonly used in commercial cleaning products.

Rush is also a low VOC (volatile organic compounds) coating, which means it emits fewer harmful chemicals into the environment than traditional coatings. This makes it a more environmentally friendly choice for both commercial and residential floor sanding applications.

In terms of aesthetics, Rush offers a clear, natural finish that enhances the natural beauty of the wood. It is available in a beautiful, modern Matt/Satin finish to suit all design preferences.

Rush vs Water Based

The main difference between water-based polyurethane and UV-cured polyurethane, such as Loba’s WS Rush, is the method of curing.

Water-based polyurethane cures through a process of evaporation and coalescence, where the water in the mixture evaporates and the polyurethane particles coalesce and harden over time. This process can take several hours or even days, depending on the environmental conditions.

UV-cured polyurethane, on the other hand, cures almost instantly through exposure to ultraviolet light. When the UV light hits the polyurethane, a photo-chemical reaction occurs, causing the polyurethane to harden quickly. This results in a very durable and long-lasting finish that can be applied in thin layers.

Loba’s WS Rush is a type of UV-cured polyurethane that can be applied in very thin layers, resulting in a finish that is even more durable than traditional water-based polyurethane. The quick curing time of UV-cured polyurethane also means that floors can be used much sooner than with water-based polyurethane.
