Preparation / Application:
Apply AQUAGUARD floor seal / varnish evenly using an 12″ Applicator or 20″ Applicator, roller or soft brush. Take care not to leave pools, runs or drip marks, which will detract from the overall appearance of the floor. If the floor is to be left overnight before recoating, it is important that the surface is lightly abraded using a suitable grade of sandpaper or sandscreen / mesh disc to ensure good adhesion of the finish.
Once final coat has been applied, the floor should be left for a minimum of 48 hours prior to light traffic being permitted. The finish will continue to harden for a period of 5 days.
Cleaning chemicals should be avoided during this period.
Cleaning, Abrading & Resealing:
Floor surfaces should be scrubbed with an alkaline degreasing solution, rinsed and neutralised with Moor Floor Finishes NEUTRAL FLOORCLEAN. The floor should then be rinsed clean and allowed to dry thoroughly. When dry apply a coat of AQUAGUARD floor seal / varnish and allow to dry (2–3 hours depending on temperature and humidity). Apply a second coat within 24 hours to obtain maximum adhesion between coats. Ensure that there is adequate ventilation whilst the seal is drying. The coating should be allowed to cure for 48 hours before allowing light traffic.
When over coating previously finished floors, two coats of AQUAGUARD floor seal / varnish are recommended.
Sanding & Sealing:
Ensure that the floor surface is free from oil, wax, grease, dirt and previous treatments. After sanding ensure all dust has bee removed by vacuuming or tac ragging. Floors which have been previously waxed or oiled it is recommended a primer coat of Moor Floor Finishes PRE-SEAL is used to prevent rejection or to reduce porosity. Apply a first coat of AQUAGUARD floor seal / varnish and allow to dry (2–3 hours depending on temperature and humidity). Any Line/court marking should be completed at this stage if required. Apply a second coat and third coat (if required) of AQUAGUARD floor seal / varnish within 24 hours of each other to obtain maximum adhesion between coats. Ensure that there is adequate ventilation whilst the seal is drying. The coating should be allowed to cure for 48 hours before allowing light traffic.
