How To Use
Ensure floor is acclimatized to its end-use environment, well sanded, dry and free from
sanding dust, oil, wax and other contamination. Allow lacquer to reach room
temperature, insert filter and shake the container thoroughly before use.
Optimal application conditions are between 18-25C and 30-60% relative air humidity.
High temperatures and low humidity shorten, low temperatures and high humidity
lengthen drying time. Minimum temperature for use is 13C.
1. Apply lacquer using a Bona Roller. Roll with a smooth flowing motion alternately
across and with the grain of the wood avoiding accumulations of product. Always
maintain a “wet edge” to avoid overlaps.
2. Allow to dry properly before applying further layers of lacquer. Anticipate slightly
longer drying time for each layer that is applied.
3. Make an intermediate sanding before the final coat using TileMaster
Grit 120 Mesh or similar. Remove any dust before applying the final layer of lacquer.
Note: If exceeding 24 hours between coats, the surface should always receive a
light intermediate sanding.
The floor will take light foot traffic approximately 8 hours after the final application.
Allow the surface to dry for at least 5 days before covering with carpets or other floor
coverings or loading with heavy objects. Also avoid damp mopping the floor during this
Clean the floor with Bona Cleaner or Bona Wood Floor Cleaner and a microfibre pad.
For maintenance and upkeep of the surface, floors can be overcoated at intervals with
additional coats of lacquer. The frequency of this operation can be greatly reduced if
Bona Freshen Up or Bona Wood Floor Refresher is applied periodically. This will
restore the appearance of a dull floor whilst still allowing further coats of lacquer to be
applied without the need for sanding the floor back to bare timber.
