For use on timber, stone and other floors. May also be used on furniture, toys, banister, shelving, ceilings, windows, doors etc.
Not recommend for timber surfaces in a constantly humid environment. For bench tops, kitchen areas, laundries, bathrooms and heavy traffic areas use only BIO Floor Varnish gloss.
Surface must be dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner. Do not apply coatings to unseasoned or wet timber.
For final sanding used 150 or 180 grade sand paper. Hardwoods and eucalyptus timber, which are rich in natural oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be degreased using BIO Thinner because these substances may mix with the varnish and prolong its drying time let dry for 24 hours. Imperfect coats may require complete stripping before applying BIO Products.
Baltic pine and Pinus radiata: Prime with one coat BIO Priming Oil. Remove excess oil after 15-30 minutes. Allow drying for 24 hours then applying BIO Floor Varnish according to instructions.
Cork- Prime with one coat of BIO Priming Oil as cork is very absorbent. Remove excess oil after 15-30 minutes. Let each coat dry for 24 hours then apply BIO Floor Varnish according to instructions.
Tiles/slate: Degrease using Bio Thinner.
Stir thoroughly with a broad flat stirrer before use. Thin 10-20% with BIO Thinner to obtain a smooth flowing consistency. Brush thinly and evenly, working varnish well into the grain, avoiding bubbles.
Thick coats take longer to dry and may wrinkle when dry. Maintain a wet edge when painting. Allow 24 hours before applying next coat. Apply the second coat only after previous coat has thoroughly dried.
Lightly sand between coats if necessary. Low temperature and humid conditions prolong the drying time.
