About Poloplaz

Ultimate Wood Floor Finishes

PoloPlaz products are all about tomorrow’s technology made in-house from innovative, proprietary formulations. This approach ensures that PoloPlaz products are designed specifically for the intended application, formulated with the highest quality of ingredients, and maintained to best-in-class standards. Much of our recent innovation has been on waterborne formulations that reduce inservice times, out-perform competitors, and are nationally VOC compliant.

Our Story

PoloPlaz began in the early 1960s as National Coatings Co. The founder of the company had been employed during the 1950s in research and development at Union Carbide. During this period, Union Carbide spent considerable resources developing the polyurethane technology that had emerged during World War II. In 1988 the company switched ownership, and since that time the company has grown and become a leader in hardwood floor finishing in North America. Over the years, millions of dollars have been invested into new products, facilities and equipment to keep National Coatings on the cutting edge of finish technology.

In 2021, PoloPlaz became part of Canlak Coatings, bringing together products specially formulated for sports/gym floors, residential and commercial wood floors, furniture and cabinets, and doors, windows and architectural trim.
