Polish before finish?

How many of you buff/burnish or polish between layers of floor finish and with what color pad?

Someone told me it could cause the following layer to loosen or not adhere as well. I'm just trying to get the most gloss I can so it looks great.

I would like to hear from others on this as well.

I have personally done this before.
Apply one or two coats of finish, allow to cure then go over it with an autoscrubber using a red pad and plain water, then apply remaining coats of finish. Outcome was a much easier surface to apply the remaining coats and a much smoother, deeper gloss in the end. Latest was in a very busy, very large hardware store. The respose was "best my floor has ever looked!" from the store and I have never had any issues with the finish not adhearing to the previous coat.

If you are using a standard (side-to-side) buffer, I would suggest a good moping after going over it. Worst thing to happen is it doesnt work and you can use a green, brown or even an SPP pad to re-prep the surface. I doubt you would see any issues as long as your floor is clean and you are using a quality finish.

You need to apply two to three coats of polish before finishing.With this outcome is much easier then before.

Polish

Polishing before is extremely important. Try doing 2-3 layers, it'll give a great finish. Good luck
