FLOOR PREPARATION:

New Floors:

Fine sand to a smooth finish (Not finer than #120 mesh). Hardwoods must not be burnished and grain must remain open. Vacuum thoroughly. Ensure the timber surface if free from dust, wax or oily substances.

Old Floors:

Clean with hot water and detergent .Roughen surface completely with 150 mesh screenback and vacuum thoroughly. Wipe floor with URETHANE COATINGS THINNERS. Test for compatibility by applying DUOTHANE on a small section of floor first. If 'craters' or 'fisheyes' appear, add 10mls of FLOWMAX Antirejection Fluid per litre of DUOTHANE and refer to FLOWMAX directions.

APPLICATION:

  1. Carefully measure ONE PART of DUOTHANE FAST A to ONE PART DUOTHANE PART B. In very cold conditions curing can be increased by using two parts DUOTHANE FAST A to one part DUOTHANE PART B.
  2. Apply with mohair roller, or lambs wool applicator, or brush. Allow 30-60 minutes to dry. Open doors and windows to increase cure rates. Do NOT return unused material to can.
  3. Sand with a 150 grit screenback and vacuum.
  4. Apply one or two coats of DUOTHANE PART A/DUOTHANE PART B, or MONOTHANE.
  5. Thoroughly clean the mohair roller, lamb’s wool applicator or brush in URETHANE COATINGS CLEANING SOLVENT.  Dry all equipment before reusing.

COVERAGE:

10m² per litre. URETHANE COATINGS THINNERS may be added if DUOTHANE has thickened, or if a higher coverage and a thinner coat is required.

MAINTENANCE:

DUOTHANE requires 7-10 days to fully cure.  Avoid heavy traffic during this period.  Use protective pads under legs of furniture.

Regularly wipe over the floor with an antistatic mop or sweep with a soft bristle broom.  We caution against the use of vacuum cleaners, particularly if the bristles are worn as the cleaning head may then scratch the floor.  The frequency of cleaning is dependent on the level of traffic, amount of grit carried onto the floor, and activity of children, and pets etc.

To clean your floor, mix up to one cup of Methylated Spirits into a bucket of hot water, and mop the floor, regularly rinsing the mop.  If the floor is particularly dirty, wash first with a non abrasive detergent then clean with the Methylated spirits and water solution – this will prevent streaking and smear marks that sometimes remain after use of detergents and/or household cleaners.
