from pioneer to trendsetter


Mid seventies of the last century Rigo Special Coatings - since 1938 based in IJmuiden - began developing and manufacturing waterborne polyurethane floor varnishes.


As a result of this pioneering in 1978 Rigo Parquet Varnish and Rigo Floor Varnish were introduced, the first water-based polyurethane floor coatings on the international market. Now, more than 30 years later, RigoStep continues to set the trend and to expand our knowledge of raw materials and formulation technology. 


RigoStep puts the finishing of wood floors at the highest level of beauty, durability, durability and ease of maintenance.


A parquet or cork that protects well, but looks like plastic overshoots its mark. With RigoStep that is also something you don't have to worry about, because also in appearance RigoStep PU coatings are a class of their own.


A good example is SKYLT, a unique product that slightly whitens the surface and is just as matt as bare wood. A SKYLT finished surface looks like untreated, but is perfectly protected.


Eiken visgraat - gelegd en afgewerkt met SKYLT in 2003.  Eiken Stroken afgewerkt met 1 x SEAL + 2 x SKYLT.  Eiken met 1 x COLORWASH Smoked Oak + 2 x SKYLT. 


In 1978 Rigo Parquet Varnish and Rigo Floor Varnish were the first

water-based polyurethane floor finishes on the international market.
