Toby is a specialist timber floor coating brand with more than 25 years
experience in the Australian market. Toby is the most recognised
specialist brand in the timber floor coating trade and can be easily
identified by its packaging, "the red can".
The timber floor coatings technology originated more than 25 years ago
with an Australian company, Huntley, who later became known as
Metchem. The products were sold under the Tarzan brand until the sale of
the timber floor coatings technology to Toby Construction Chemicals in
1991. From this time the brand was known as Toby.
Later, Toby Construction Chemicals merged with Emery Coatings, to form
The Toby range includes:
- traditional coatings that have been established for many years, including Lustapol and Unithane
- the latest water based technology, known as Aquamax.
- products designed to maintain the timber floor finishes
- products to assist the floor coating professional in the application of floor finishes.
