Essex Silver-Line is proud of our long association with Fabulon products. Fabulon finishes are known as the top of the line, for durability, innovation and quality.

We believe in Fabulon quality so much, it is the only finish used in the homes of our CEO, President, and Vice President.

We have added this page to our site due to the amount of mail we received requesting information on Fabulon Floor Finishes, how to use, which type to use, how to apply and of course, local availability. If you do not find the information you are looking for on this page you can either call Fabulon's Tech Service Group @ 1 800 289-7728 or contact us at Essex Silver-Line.

The following is a history of Fabulon and their products from taken from one of their pamphlets named "How to finish wood floors...Old or New"
"Our bowling lane finishes were first made in 1934, and Fabulon has been a leader in the floor finishing field since. In 1977, FABULON developed a unique water-based bowling lane finish that led directly to the formulation of our consumer water-base finishes, like Fabulon Crystal.

The following is a breakdown of their most popular finishes. Remember, Fabulon Floor Finishes are designed specifically for wood floors!


Fabulon Heavy-Duty Polyurethane
This product is known by professionals and homeowners as one of the finest, long-lasting polyurethanes on the market
It has exceptionally high polyurethane resin content that assures maximum durability, excellent body and a long lasting no wax finish. It never needs waxing.
This finish provides an easy-to-care for "coat of protection" on wood floors.
Fabulon Heavy-Duty polyurethane is also available in a low VOC version where required by law.
Fabulon Heavy-Duty Polyurethane is available in three sheens: Super-Gloss, Semi-Gloss & Satin.


Fabulon Crystal
Crystal is a direct result of decades of research for bowling lane finishes. Crystal is the premier high-performance water-borne finish for residential floors.
