Moisture Cure Urethane

I am doing a floor with MCU. The only sheen I have been able to purchase is gloss. talked to a professional floor guy, he says he puts down 3 coats of MCU and the does a 4h coat with a satin oil based urethane to get away from a gloss finish.

He claims this will give a very tough finish. He seems very knowledgeable, but I am wondering how much the 4th and final coat dictates the overall toughness of the final product?

Thanks

Most only put 2 coats of gloss and a final coat of semi gloss, so there is more clarity in the finish and not all clouded from the dulling agents in the semi gloss.

Semi-gloss or satin. You get better clarity with the clearer gloss coats first.
