Using natural, fast drying oils and resins which penetrate deeply into the wood. Filling and enriching the pores it cures to seal and protect from within. Specially formulated for high traffic areas, Timberex Heavy Duty UV has been used extensively in airports, sports halls, museums, art galleries, conference centres, offices etc.
- Seal and protects wood from within
- For high traffic areas as airports, museums, conference centres and more
- UV-blockers prevent discoloration
- Protects the wood against liquids and stains
- Protects without losing the ‘natural wood look’
Punch down any nail heads, fill any small holes or imperfections with proprietary coloured timber filler (plastic wood) and leave to cure. The wood should not have excessive gaps through which the product could seep and affect the bond of any adhesive layer or rooms below. Floors should be free from any barrier to penetration. Sand at least twice starting with coarse sandpaper, and use 120 grade maximum sandpaper for the final preparatory sanding. Clean the surface by vacuuming and
damp wipe the entire floor using a very well wrung-out cloth, and allow to dry.
It is advisable to test a small area first to ensure that the desired result is achieved. Timberex Heavy Duty UV PLUS, is designed to deeply penetrate and protect from within the wood and must not be used to form a surface coating.
1. Apply the first coat of Timberex Heavy Duty UV PLUS using a wide brush,roller or platform pad. Accidental splashes on surrounding surfaces must be removed immediately. Keep moving the oil to areas where it is being absorbed. It must not dry between coats.
2. Apply a second coat after 20-30 minutes or sooner, if the first coat is quickly absorbed.
3. Apply a third coat after 20-30 minutes. Apply further coats until the wood will not absorb any more oil.
4. After a final 30 minutes, while there is a thin, even surface residue of unabsorbed Timberex Heavy Duty UV PLUS, it is important to thoroughly buff the wet surface with a red grade nylon pad at approximately 150 rpm.
5. Remove ALL unabsorbed Timberex Heavy Duty UV PLUS, immediately with cloths, leaving a matt finish at this stage.
6. Place all oil-impregnated cloths etc into a bucket filled with water..
7. When the surface has dried after 6-10 hours, it is important to thoroughly buff with a Red grade nylon pad to close the surface, provide a satin sheen and to remove any minor ‘bleedback’.
- The surface will normally be sufficiently dry to walk on after 24 hours. Dry vacuum only during the first 10 days and remove liquid spillages immediately. The surface will gradually increase in water-resistance. Any initial light water marking is easily removed by soft nylon pad in conjunction with Timberex Heavy Duty UV PLUS or one of the maintenance products from the Timberex Satin Oil Range.
- Maintenance: Floors which have been oiled for the first time should be treated with a Timberex Satin Oil product after 6-12 months and thereafter at annual intervals or as required. Timberex Bio-C neutral cleaner will remove general dirt. Avoid alkaline soap.
- Theoretical Coverage: 12-15 m2 per litre. It is recommended that on ‘end grain’ wood, beech, cherry and other extremely porous woods, a extra coat of oils is applied to reduce excessive absorption.
- Available in 5 Litres
