Safety Data Sheet (131kb PDF)
Prior to application the surface must be pre-treated with a waterborne primer from Bona. For Bona Mega we recommend Bona Classic, Bona Natural, Bona Amber, Bona Amber or Bona Intense. Ensure floor is acclimatized to its end-use environment, well sanded, dry and free from sanding dust, oil, wax and other contamination. Allow lacquer and hardener to reach room temperature.
Optimal application conditions are between 18–25°C and 30–60% relative air humidity. High temperatures and low humidity shorten drying time; low temperatures and high humidity lengthen drying time. Minimum temperature for use is 13°C.
For Preparation of previously lacquered floors: Bona Traffic HD Anti-slip has in general very good adhesion to factory pre-finished and previously lacquered floors, but the surface must be carefully cleaned and abraded prior to overcoating. See separate guidelines for overcoating recommendations.
Shake the Traffic HD Anti Slip can and add one bottle of Traffic HD Hardener. Immediately shake the mixture thoroughly for 1 minute and then insert the enclosed filter. If mixing smaller quantities of lacquer then pour the required amount of lacquer into a separate can. 1 litre of lacquer corresponds to one part of hardener. 2 litres to two parts a.s.o. The mixture of lacquer/hardener should be used directly or at least within 4 hours.
Apply the 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. Allow to dry properly before applying further layers. Anticipate slightly longer drying time for each layer that is applied.
If necessary make an intermediate sanding using a screen or the Bona Scrad System grit P150 (or finer) and remove dust before applying a final layer of lacquer.
Note: If the previous layer of lacquer has been allowed more than 24 hours drying time then an intermediate sanding is always required.
The floor will take light foot traffic approximately 8 hours after the final application. Allow the surface to dry for at least 1 week before covering with carpets or other floor coverings, or loading with heavy objects. Also avoid damp mopping the floor during this time.
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.
