Application

General directions:
Surfaces must be dry, clean, free of dirt, grease and other surface contamination including previous coatings. Owatrol Vegafloor can only be applied to bare wood surfaces or wood surfaces previously finished with Owatrol Vegafloor or a solvent or waterborne floor varnish in good condition. ALL other finishes MUST be completely and thoroughly removed. Always clean meticulously with a vacuum cleaner after each sanding, including any dust traps (skirting, radiators, pipes, window sills, etc).

Sand wooden floor using appropriate system and abrasive grades, depending on condition of surface and wood species. Cracks of 2 mm wide or less should be filled with LIANFLOOR®* and sanding resumed with 80 or 100 grit paper depending on the last grit used. Finish with finishing grade up to grit No. 120 or 150 depending on the wood species and thickness of wear layer.

If required treat new or old bare wood with Owatrol TMU 84 to protect against fungal attack and blue stain. Prime all bare wood surfaces with Owatrol Primafloor.

New wood surfaces:
Degrease surface with denatured alcohol, acetone or similar solvent based product. Prepare and sand surface as instructed in “General directions” above.

Previously treated surfaces (oiled or polished):
Previously oiled or polished surfaces should be dry stripped with Owatrol CDKP® 90. After stripping degrease surface with with denatured alcohol, acetone, white (mineral) spirit or similar solvent based product. Prepare and sand surface as instructed in “General directions” above.

Previously varnished surfaces in good condition:
Clean floor meticulously with Owatrol Spacenett. Repeat procedure if required. Sand surface with grit No 100 or 120 to remove surface imperfections and dull existing finish. Meticulously vacuum surface.
