More importantly, you say you want to use it on the exterior "floor"? If you mean your teak deck or cockpit floor I would do nothing to it!!!! Unless you like falling on your ass regularly.
Epifanes Woodfinish Gloss is a high quality varnish but not enough resistant for the flooring?

On my boat, the teak is present on floor inlay, seating area, transom and transom steps and rail!

I want the same finish on all exterior wood and if I can not use Varnish, I will use oil!
