Floor Sealer provides a natural, oil-based, sealed finish for interior wooden floors. Protecting against staining and scratching, it seals floors prior to waxing and varnishing, and is water, heat and alcohol resistant. Floor Sealer enhances the natural colour of new and old wood, and can also be used alone to achieve a final satin to gloss finish. It is also suitable for sealing unvarnished cork surfaces.
HOW TO USE
Sand the floor if required and remove all previous finishes. Ensure the surface is clean, dry and dust-free. If you wish to colour the wood use Wood Floor Dye prior to applying Floor Sealer.
Shake the container well before use. Apply a reasonable coat of Floor Sealer with a brush, roller or cloth. Allow the oil to penetrate for 5-10 minutes then remove any excess with a dry lint-free cloth. We recommend a minimum of three coats allowing for five hours drying time between coats. Additional coats may be required on porous surfaces or to achieve a higher finish. Floor Wax or High Resistance Varnish may be applied after sealing, but please allow 24 hours for the last coat of Floor Sealer to harden before applying.
Oil finishes bring out the natural colours of the timber. A wet surface will be an indication of the final colour. Always test the product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour compatibility and end result.
Cleaning and maintenance
Surfaces should be swept or vacuumed and may be cleaned with a damp cloth. Any spills should be wiped up immediately. For stubborn stains a mild detergent can be used, alternatively lightly sand the affected area to remove the stain and then re-apply Floor Sealer. When using Floor Sealer alone surfaces may need to be re-sealed once a year, or more frequently in areas of high foot traffic.
Allow all wood dyes to dry for a minimum of eight hours before applying Floor Sealer.
Do not use on vinyl or similar floor coverings.
This product may dissolve bitumen-based adhesives.
Oily cloths may self-combust. Do not leave impregnated cloths in bundles. Before discarding the cloths, lay them flat outside to dry to avoid a fire hazard.
