Definition of Glaze

Glaze is a glossy liquid finishing solution made from a combination of oils, resin, and pigments.

The liquid solution is applied evenly to flooring material using a brush, sprayer, or roller. It’s then allowed to dry and cure for at least 24 hours to create a smooth, reflective finish.

The gloss and shine of a glaze varies depending on the specific glazing product and how it’s applied.
