Synteko supports professionals treating wooden floors (finishing, oiling, cleaning and maintenance). The Synteko brand was created for quality-minded floor contractors, who appreciate easy application features, long durability, the natural appearance of the wooden floor and a high rate of success.
All Synteko products have been developed to satisfy the professionals' needs for high-quality products. Our different "systems" are all unique and simple to use, based on the concept that they have to be easy to work with for floor contractors and at the same time give the best results for home owners.
It all started in a laboratory in Stockholm in 1945 where chemists - who at the time were producing adhesives - had a tendency to drop urea resin on the laboratory desks. What was first seen as a problem due to the difficulty in removing this hard substance was later realised to be a possibility on other surfaces. Synteko's first floor finish was launched after the end of World War II and the first product was an unmodified urea resin floor finish.
The big break-through came at the beginning of the 1950s when Synteko introduced a new modified version. Its success was undeniable. The Synteko brand became generic, and people wanted to have their floors to be Synteko-treated. In the 1970s Synteko was one of the first companies in the world to introduce waterborne lacquers. This competence is still Synteko's greatest strength.
Synteko started its global expansion as early as the 1950s. Many of Synteko's partners have been working with us for many years. This is also something that is valued within Synteko: our long-term business relations. The common basis on which the Synteko family all work is our focus on specialist and high quality.
