New or restored floor:
Appropriate for the majority of oil or water based stains. Be sure the stain is completely dry and follow manufacturer’s recommendations carefully. Application must be done at room temperature between 21 and 25 ºC (70 and 77 ºF) and at a relative humidity of 45%.
- Sand following the wood grain, smooth the surface with a 120 grit sandpaper (DO NOT use steel wool) and remove dust with a vacuum cleaner and dry towels.
- Proceed to an adherence, compatibility and color test by reproducing jobsite application conditions and methods.
- Apply 3 to 4 coats of Finitec 3000 with the following application method:
A) Mix the finish with a clean stick in order to provide a homogeneous product, then shake the finish vigorously for 45 seconds.
B) Let stand at least 10 minutes to allow bubbles to break.
C) Pour a finish line of 4 inches (10 cm) on floor along the wall and following the floor planks direction.
D) Use a clean Finitec finish applicator, soak and apply the finish following the floor planks direction with a “snowplow” angle to always bring the excess liquid towards the untreated section. Overlap 4 inches (10 cm) the finished section. To prevent marks on the finish, DO NOT apply pressure on the applicator and smooth out marks and lines progressively. Be sure that coats are not too thin.
E) Allow about 2 to 3 hours of drying between coats (may vary according to conditions).
F) Sand between coats using a 180 grit sandpaper.
G) It is not necessary to sand before the last coat if the time between the last two applications does not exceed 3 hours.
