Kentucky Wood Floors has added to its manufacturing processes new one-pass finishing equipment manufactured by Dubois Equipment of Jasper, IN. The upgraded production line is designed to apply a five-coat, 2.5-mil thick, high abrasion finish to the company’s hardwood floor offerings. PPG Industries formulated the finish with aluminum oxide for enhanced durability.

Kentucky is now able to prefinish its Custom Classics line, which features sections in 50-inch widths. The company’s new equipment has quick-change capabilities and its versatility allows Kentucky to combine a hand-distressed texture with a UV-cured urethane finish.
