Water Based Bona Kemi Traffic & HD Traffic
Bona Kemi developed a new finish called "HD" Traffic.
It cost more per gallon than regular traffic but is a superior product in both durability and sustainability. It has less toxic off gassing than traditional Polyurethane finishes.
We recommend it for high use areas. We have used this finish as a top coat on the Stinson Beach Community Center, Bolinas School, The Pelican Inn, and the Druids Hall in Novato to name a few...
