- Acid-cure finishes give off formaldehyde (a carcinogen) during the curing process which lasts more than 30 days
- Oil-modified and acid-cure finishes emit very high VOC's and harmful fumes causing the homeowner, pets, and plants to vacate the home for 2-3 days.
- Both contain petroleum distillates which are combustible or flammable
- Dry and cure times are two to three times longer than waterborne finishes
