OMU users love OMU because of the high gloss and durability it offers. We agree that high gloss and durability are crucial in a gym finish selection. The problem with OMU is that applying it takes a really long time. First you have to screen the floor, then you have to completely remove the volatile, messy residue and once you’re finally ready to coat the floor, you have to be able to take your gym floor out of service for at least a week, if not two or three. That means you can really only coat your gym floor in the summertime, when it’s humid, which slows down the OMU curing process. Sport Kote offers all of the durability (see our durability demo videos: Hammer Test and Crinkle Test) and gloss of an OMU but you can prep your floor, apply Sport Kote and have your gym back in full service the next day (see our Sport Kote Promise Video: Play On it the Next Day). That means you can coat your gym with Sport Kote and get OMU performance any time of year. Don’t believe it? Come see for yourself at one of our Sport Kote Seminars. We hold those all year long, too.
