When recoating with Coliseum floor coatings, the 24-hour recoat window begins after the first coat dries to a tack-free condition. Wait several hours after the first coat is tack-free before applying the second coat. Curing problems may result if there is not enough time between coats.

Reflections® Outplays the Competition
In October 2011, Larry Clucas established Veterans Floors, Inc. He had been working with wood floors for more than 10 years, and decided to start his own company. Clucas was looking for the highest quality wood floor coatings on the market while still maintaining cost effectiveness. He was introduced to Buckeye Reflections wood floor products, tested Coliseum™ 350 Oil-Based Wood Floor Coating, and discovered the qualities he needed.

With the stringent VOC laws in Illinois, Clucas needed a 350 VOC OMU (Oil-Modified Urethane) wood floor coating that would apply easily. Other 350 VOC OMU wood floor coatings on the market were too thick and would not flow through his EZ Way applicators easily. Coliseum 350 works great for him and his customers. "The main things I love about Coliseum 350 are that it lays smooth and runs through my applicators with ease. It also covers my screen marks, leaving a great shine and appearance!" For a company that was just launched, Clucas knew it was important to make a great first impression with the gyms he screened and recoated the previous year. He has received all positive feedback from his customers. One of Clucas' customers, Julie Sullinger, Facility Manager of Belvidere Community Center comments, "Our wood floor has never looked this good before." As a result of Clucas' success with Coliseum 350, he has over 150 gym floor screen and recoat jobs scheduled for 2012!
