What are the benefits of UVElite for contractors?
UVElite helps meet your customer’s flooring needs and even exceed their expectations. Arboritec’s UVElite minimizes operational downtime with single-day project completion. Also, with UVElite, both you and floor owners never again have to be worry about early use damage to a recently finished floor. Using UVElite is the difference between being good, and being great. If you are one of those contractors who want to be on the cutting edge in this industry, you understand the importance of being the best, and strive to be leaders in your markets. Acceptable is not enough for you, nor is it for Arboritec.
Just like any other traditional finish systems, contractors charge homeowners based on the value the system provides. UVElite delivers convenience and is one of the most advanced and durable waterborne site applied finishes on the market today, so it deserves to be priced at a premium.
Compared with traditional 2-component systems, UVElite allows contractors to offer added convenience, durability, and floor life for a relatively small price increase on a per square foot basis.
As UVElite is a one component product, pot life issues and waste are eliminated.
Because your job is fully cured after the UV curing step, there is also no need to return to the home to replace rugs, furniture or fixtures. Your job is truly done when you leave saving you time and unnecessary travel costs.
What are the benefits of UVElite for home owners?
Home owners benefit most from Arboritec’s UV curing system.
Instant use of the floor is one of the advantages of UVElite. The finish reaches maximum durability at the very moment it is hit by the light from the UV machine. This means convenience – no prolonged waiting period to allow the finish to reach its maximum durability, scratch, scuff, and chemical resistance. Renovation of a floor is an expensive investment, and you want it to last. With traditional cure systems, a large percentage of floor damage can occur in the initial curing phase, as pets are allowed on too quickly, rugs are replaced before they should be, floors are mopped too early, furniture is slid into place, etc. This early use damage is prevented with UVElite. Arboritec’s UVElite minimizes operational downtime with the speed of single-day project completion. Other waterborne finishes need 4-14 days to cure before heavy use.
UVElite is 40% more durable than other traditional two-component waterborne finishes. In fact, the durability, wear resistance, and chemical resistance are equal to that of some factory prefinished floors with lifetime warranties.
UVElite is safe. UVElite is free from NMP, isocynates, and has only 17 grams of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) per liter, making it among the most environmentally-friendly wood floor finishes on the market. It is completely solvent-free as well. With very low emissions, using UVElite means better indoor air quality and a safer environment for floor owners. The longer life of the finish also contributes to the overall sustainable life cycle of the process.
The look of a brand new floor, quickly. Arboritec´s innovative liquid ceramic and UV technology reinstate the durability and look similar to a factory pre-finished floor. Therefore, the application of UVElite is a much more time- and cost-effective alternative than replacement of the floor.
Easer to clean: Arboritec’s UVElite is easier to clean, which makes the cleaning process much easier. As a result, floors coated with UVElite tend to be cleaner after mopping compared to floors treated with traditional coating solutions.
What are the advantages of Arboritec’s UVElite compared to other UV curing systems?
Faster and easier: Arboritec’s UVElite is the fastest and easiest UV curing system on the market. You only need to UV cure the floor once and after the final coat. You DON’T need to UV cure the floor after priming the floor, and not after intermediate coats of UVElite. There is also no need to sand and vacuum between coats of UVElite. In addition, UVElite has a significantly shorter drying time of 1-3 hours. As the fastest UV curing finish system, UVElite allows you to complete many jobs overnight and let the commercial floor owner be back open for business in the morning.
More durable: Arboritec’s UVElite is the most durable finishing solution in the market. Extensive Taber testing has shown that UVElite is about 40% more durable than the current market standard for 2-component waterborne finishes.
More environmentally safe. UVElite is free from NMP, isocyanates and solvents, and has less than 17g/l of VOCs making it among the most environmentally-friendly hard flooring surface coating solutions on the market.
