Water Based Polyurethane
Water based polyurethane (WBP) has lower VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) and it is environment friendly. As WBP contains only 30 -35% solids (vs. oil based containing 45 – 50%) solids, it needs more coats of wbp. WBP tends to cost more than oil based polyurethane and when you add in an extra 1-2 coats the cost increases further.
WBP dries faster but has both a duller color and a duller finish. Water based jobs can be done in 2 days and you can walk that night whereas oil based can take 3-5 days (pending on humidity) and you need to wait at least 24 hours before walking in.
This option can really make sense for commercial businesses such as restaurants or stores as longer drying time means the store is closed and there is an associated business cost.
