Preparation / Application:
Ensure a good level of ventilation at all time throughout the procedure.
Apply ORIGINAL SPORTGUARD floor seal / varnish evenly using an applicator or roller. 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:
Wood, Granwood and Gransprung 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 SPORTGUARD and allow to dry (4 – 6 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 ORIGINAL SPORTGUARD 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. Apply a first coat of ORIGINAL SPORTGUARD floor seal / varnish and allow to dry (4 – 6 hours depending on temperature and humidity). Any Line/court marking should be completed at this stage. Apply a second coat and third coat of SPORTGUARD 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.
When coating refurbished Wood, Granwood and Gransprung floors, three coats of ORIGINAL SPORTGUARD floor seal / varnish are recommended to provide a hardwearing finish.
Note: If a Line/Court paint is used that is not ‘Moor Floor Finishes Line / Court paint’ then a trial test must be done to ensure compatibility between the paint and the Sportguard.
Thoroughly clean the floor using a degreasing solution and, if necessary, acid etch to remove any laitance. Apply the ORIGINAL SPORTGUARD floor seal / varnish with an applicator or roller. New concrete should be allowed to dry for at least 6 weeks before coating.
The sealed floor should be damp mopped or a Scrubber/drier used with a solution of Moor Floor Finishes NEUTRAL FLOORCLEAN. To prevent the build up of grease / fatty matter on the surface of the coating it should be scrubbed periodically with a mildly alkaline solution, such as Moor Floor Finishes MULTI-PURPOSE CLEANER.
