Area Preparation

Surface must be clean and dry. Remove all loose and peeling paint, dust, dirt, grease, oils, wax, and any other surface contaminants. Bare Wood: Sand with 180 to 220-grit sandpaper along the wood grain until smooth. Do not use steel wool. Remove all dust. Stain if desired. When applying over stained wood, ensure stain is thoroughly dry. Previously Coated Wood: If the clean surface is in good condition, sand with 220-grit sandpaper. Do not use steel wool. Remove all dust. If the finish is damaged or deteriorated, complete removal of the finish is recommended. Do not use over light-colored surfaces, wax, shellac, fresh lacquer, lacquer sanding sealer, silicones, or stearates.

Application Details

Provide adequate ventilation. Stir well before and during use. Do not shake. DO NOT THIN. Apply with a high-quality, synthetic brush, roller, pad, or spray equipment. Apply thin, even coats with the grain of the wood. For adequate protection, a minimum of three coats are required. A minimum of four coats are recommended for applications to interior floors. Recoat when previous coats have dried clear and hard. Between coats, sand with 220-grit or finer sandpaper along the wood grain until smooth. A powder should develop when lightly sanded. Do not use steel wool. Remove all dust. Additional and/or maintenance coats will extend the life of the finish. Recoat at the earliest sign of peeling, cracking, or excessive wear. Ideal air, product, and surface temperatures are between 50°F (10°C) and 90°F (32°C).

Drying Time

Requires 2 hours of dry time before adding another coat, and 24 hours before use
