Slowly add the hardening agent B to component A, while continuously stirring the latter (1 part of hardening agent B to 10 parts component A). Continue to stir for 30 seconds after the solution is fully mixed. Then leave to rest for 5 - 10 minutes before use.
Application: Use a brush or varnish roller. Apply first in transversal direction in relation to the grain of the wood and then apply in the direction of the grain. Apply “wet on wet”, allowing the strokes to merge. On larger surfaces, it is advisable to work as a team, so that the wet strokes formed by the brush or roller merge into each other. Avoid direct draughts and direct exposure to sunlight in the area where the product is used. Apply 2 - 3 coats, depending on the desired wear resistance and protection. If 3 coats are applied, the first coat can be diluted with a maximum of 10% water.
Pot life: 2 hours
Drying time: 2-4 hours
Finish: After approx. 6 hours, roughen by hand or using a machine. Sand after the first coat, using a 120 grit sanding disc. Between the 2nd and 3rd coat, sand using a 220 grit sanding disc.

Full curing time: 7 days. Although the floor is dry enough to walk on after 5 hours, it is recommended that you allow it to rest while the product hardens.
