Urethane Coatings Monthanes Silver GlossSingle pack moisture cure polyurethane, formulated for the most discerning budget while retaining extremely good gloss, flow and levelling properties.

USES:

  1. May be used for interior coating of ALL timber species, cork, particle board and concrete.
  2. Can be applied over TIMBERSEAL OR DUOTHANE FAST A/ DUOTHANE PART A and DUOTHANE PART B.
  3. Compatible with MONOTHANE HS 50 GLOSS, MONOTHANE 45 GLOSS & MONOTHANE LOW SHEENS.

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 MONOTHANE 44 GLOSS on a small section of floor first. If 'craters' or 'fisheyes' appear, add 10mls of FLOWMAX Anti Rejection Fluid per litre of MONOTHANE 44 GLOSS and refer to FLOWMAX directions.

APPLICATION:

NB : Do not use MONOTHANE 44 GLOSS at temperatures below 10°C or above 30°C. On cold days, during the final floor preparation, wrap the drum in an electric blanket set on ‘1’ (low heat) or place the drum in a tub of hot water and operate building heating, (Air conditioning or portable oil filled radiator type heaters are ideal. Any type of heating with a naked flame or with very hot surfaces are not recommended). Turn heating off prior to application of coatings.

  1. Apply with a mohair roller, lamb’s wool applicator or brush, allow 4-6 hours to dry.  Do not return unused material to the can.  New cork and timber floors will need 3 and 2 coats respectively, sand with 150 mesh screenback between coats.
  2. Thoroughly clean the mohair roller, lamb’s wool applicator or brush in URETHANE COATINGS CLEANING SOLVENT.  Dry all equipment before using.
  3. URETHANE COATINGS CATALYST may be added to the first coat of MONOTHANE to accelerate curing.

COVERAGE:

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

MAINTENANCE:

MONOTHANE requires 7-10 days to fully cure by absorbing moisture from the atmosphere.  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.
