WATERTHANE floor seal / varnish produces a flexible, light-fast and water resistant seal which is hard, tough and abrasion resistant.
WATERTHANE floor seal / varnish is a specifically formulated single pack water based polyurethane modified with acrylic.
Available in Gloss, Satin and Matt finish.
WATERTHANE floor seal / varnish has been developed for use on new or resanded Hardwood, Mosaic, Block, Cork and Softwood flooring, and produces a hard wearing and chemically resistant finish that is easily maintained. It is suitable for use in both commercial and domestic areas, and for recoating pre-finished flooring.
Surfaces to be treated should be cleaned, degreased and previous polishes/treatments/finishes removed.
Apply WATERTHANE floor seal / varnish evenly using an applicator, roller or soft brush. Take care not to leave pools, runs or drip marks, which will detract from the overall appearance of the floor. If the floor is to be left overnight before recoating, it is important that the surface is lightly abraded using a suitable grade of sandpaper or sandscreen / mesh disc to ensure good adhesion of the finish.
Once the final coat has been applied, the floor should be left for a minimum of 48 hours prior to light traffic being permitted. The finish will continue to cure and harden for a period of 5 days.
Cleaning chemicals should be avoided during this period
Cleaning, Abrading & Resealing:
Floor surfaces should be scrubbed with an alkaline degreasing solution, rinsed and neutralised with FLOORTECH NEUTRAL FLOORCLEAN. The floor should then be rinsed clean and allowed to dry thoroughly. When dry apply a coat of WATERTHANE floor seal / varnish and allow to dry (2–3 hours depending on temperature and humidity). Apply a second coat within 24 hours to obtain maximum adhesion between coats. Ensure that there is adequate ventilation whilst the seal is drying. The coating should be allowed to cure for 48 hours before allowing light traffic.
When over coating previously finished floors, two coats of WATERTHANE floor seal / varnish are recommended.
Sanding & Sealing:
Ensure that the floor surface is free from oil, wax, grease, dirt and previous treatments. After sanding ensure all dust has bee removed by vacuuming or tac ragging. Floors which have been previously waxed or oiled it is recommended a primer coat of FLOORTECH PRE-SEAL is used to prevent rejection or to reduce porosity. Apply a first coat of WATERTHANE floor seal / varnish and allow to dry (2–3 hours depending on temperature and humidity). Any Line/court marking should be completed at this stage if required. Raising may occur on some types of wood grain and it will be necessary to buff back, in which case the first coat should be left for 3 to 4 hours.
Apply a second coat and third coat (if required) of WATERTHANE floor seal / varnish within 24 hours of each other to obtain maximum adhesion between coats.
Ensure that there is adequate ventilation whilst the seal is drying. The coating should be allowed to cure for 48 hours before allowing light traffic.
When coating refurbished Wood, Cork or Chipboard floors, three coats of WATERTHANE floor seal / varnish are recommended to provide a hardwearing finish.
The sealed floor should be damp mopped or a Scrubber/drier used with a solution of FLOORTECH NEUTRAL FLOORCLEAN. To prevent the build up of grease / fatty matter on the surface of the coating it should be scrubbed periodically with a mildly alkaline solution, such as FLOORTECH MULTI-PURPOSE CLEANER.
