New VCT floors - Matte finish?

we're having new vinyl commercial tile installed, and were wondering about the sealer/finish applied after the install. Does anyone know of a finish that is more matte than glossy?

I sealed/waxed my own VCT tiles a few years back with a Johnson product called Complete. I don't recall it being high gloss even in the beginning and certainly it dulls down after a while. However, that might have been my application technique...

One idea that comes to mind is to try your chosen product on a few sample tiles, then just tape them in a couple of floor areas. It might give you a chance to see how they stand up to traffic and how slippery they are. Just a thought...
