Lacq Vloerolie X10® can be applied to concrete floors to enhance the appearance and to protect against wear and prevent the dispersion of dust from untreated concrete floors. After treatment with Lacq Vloerolie X10®, floors are easy to keep clean as dirt or grease can no longer penetrate.
Lacq Vloerolie X10 can also be used to seal wooden floors and unprotected porous tiles.
For Finishing Concrete and Cement Floors
Concrete and cement floors should be at least six weeks old before starting the treatment. The moisture content of concrete and cement flooring can be tested by taping down plastic film onto a number of 1 m² sections to create an airtight seal. The plastic film and the floor should still be dry after 48 hours without any sign of dampness. If this is the case, the floor can be treated. Substrate moisture may negatively affect coating adhesion.
If the floor has been finished with a curing compound, this should always be sand blasted prior to treatment. The surface has to be clean, dry, smooth and structurally sound. Remove dirt, dust and wax by cleaning with water and a suitable cleaning agent, according to the instructions.
Concrete and cement floors that have already been treated with Vloerolie X10 should be cleaned with water and the appropriate cleaning agent. Then sand the floor thoroughly. Rinse the floor with clean water, remove the residue with a water vacuum cleaner and leave to dry.
Very smooth concrete and cement floors should be etched first, according to the instructions. Smooth concrete floors should preferably be dust-free blasted or polished with diamond surface grinders. Smooth (sand) cement flooring must be sanded. After sanding, use an appropriate vacuum cleaner to remove all sanding dust.
Dilute the first layer of Vloerolie X10 with 20-40% white spirit, depending on the absorbency of the concrete. Dilute the second and, possibly, third layer with approximately 10% white spirit. For extremely smooth and non-porous concrete surfaces like stelcon slabs, dilute Vloerolie X10 with 60% white spirit. The layer thickness is built up sufficiently as soon as the Vloerolie X10 produces a smooth gloss, after which another 1 or 2 layers can be applied as desired. (Avoid applying layers too thickly).
For Finishing Wooden Floors
Depending on the hardness of the floor, dilute the first layer of Vloerolie X10 with 20-50% white spirit. Dilute the second and, possibly, third layer with approximately 10% white spirit. As soon as the Vloerolie X10 produces an even gloss, the build-up of the layer is sufficient and another 1 to 2 layers can be applied, as desired. (Avoid applying layers too thickly).
For Finishing Porous Tiles
Apply Vloerolie X10 in two to three layers, diluting them with 60%, 40% and 20% white spirit, respectively. The harder the tile, the higher the dilution percentage. As soon as the Vloerolie X10 produces an even gloss, the build-up of the layer is sufficient and another 1 to 2 layers can be applied, as desired. (Avoid applying layers too thickly).
