This is a slight rippled effect that clear coats produce that appear similar to that of an orange peel. Matte finish clear coats display this much more prominently than glossy finishes with polyaspartics. This effect is seen in both coating types to some degree. We have applied polyaspartics quite thick to eliminate this effect but at great expense to traction! You will also have a far more forgiving floor in terms of hiding any scratches you may put into it with an orange peel/matte finished floor.
