Masterline oil based over Synteko classic the same day?

I have a floor refinisher that puts two coats of Synteko classic and then one coat of Masterline oil based so the job can be completed the same day. I am not an expert on floors but in the automotive refinishing mixing different types of products would not be acceptable. There could be serious adhesion issues. Anyone have any advise?

Welcome to the forums!

I'm not familiar with the Synteko Classic but assume it's water based. Adhesion shouldn't be an issue [might be if the 2 coatings were reversed] but I'm not convinced it's a good idea to put a softer coating under the harder oil base poly.

Thanks! If I understand correctly Synteko classic is a 2 component finish. A clearcoat and an activator or hardener. It is not urethane. IT is acid cure.

I've used a 2 part water based floor finish before and it dried pretty hard. I even applied some mixed leftover to a door in my shop over 20 yrs ago that still looks good.

His method might be ok, have you talked to any of his previous customers?
