About Teknos Opal 2 Pack Water-Borne Wooden Floor and Parquet Lacquer

Teknos Opal Floor Seal is a 100% polyurethane two-pack lacquer formulated for the treatment of high use wooden floor in environments such as sports halls, hospitality and retail premises.

It is quick-drying, has a rapid recoat time and has excellent scratch, chemical and black heel mark resistance. 

Teknos Opal Floor and Parquet Lacquer is recommended for use on most interior flooring materials, such as hardwood, strip block and mosaic flooring and softwood boarding, as well as cork, untempered hardboard, chipboard and wood compositions. 

It is also ideal for use on previously sealed wooden floors after suitable preparation.

It is not suitable for finishing diamond pine and chemically treated wood such as smoked oak.

Surface Preparation

Teknos Opal Wooden Floor and Parquet Lacquer should only be applied to clean, dry substrates free from dust, dirt, wax, maintenance product residue, grease or anything that will inhibit good adhesion.

Oily hardwoods and knots should be cleaned with a ‘sharp’ solvent.

The use of knotting solution under Topaz Wooden floor and Parquet Lacquer is not recommended.

As it provides a transparent finish, any marks, blemishes or stains will be apparent after treatment.

Do not use wire wool for surface preparation.

Untreated Floors

  • Punch in all nails and fill holes with an appropriate shade of Prestonnet Wood filler.
  • Thoroughly sand the floor with a machine sander in the direction of the grain, back to clean, and bright wood.
  • Wood block floors should be sanded twice in two directions at right angles to each other.
  • Avoid inhaling dust by wearing a suitable facemask.
  • 120 grade sandpaper should be used for final sanding. Round off any sharp edges.
  • Repair any surface defects with Wood Filler and sand smooth.
  • Allow dust to settle and remove by vacuuming.
  • Wipe over with a ‘sharp’ solvent and allow to dry thoroughly.
  • Prime with Teknos Forme Wood Floor and Parquet Primer and allow to dry.
  • Apply 2-3 coats of Teknos Opal by brush or roller

Previously Varnished Floors

  • Ensure that the surface is clean and free from wax, polish or other contaminants.
  • Thoroughly abrade to form a key using 120 grade sandpaper or wet and dry paper.
  • If the floor has been oiled or coated with a polyurethane or solvent based floor lacquer the floor must be sanded to new fresh timber 
  • Avoid inhaling dust by wearing a suitable facemask.
  • Remove dust by vacuuming and wipe over with a ’sharp’ solvent and allow to dry.
  • Varnish in poor condition should be completely removed.
  • Test a small area first for coating adhesion and/or compatibility prior to treating the whole floor.
  • Apply 1-2 coats of Teknos Topaz

Application and Thinning

Pour the hardener into the lacquer container in the ratio of 1 part hardener to 9 parts lacquer, shake for 30 seconds then let the lacquer de-aerate for 5 to 10 minutes

Pot Life - 6 hours

Use a lamb’s wool or synthetic applicator or roller.

Do not thin.

Avoid over rigorous application.

To ensure good coverage use the applicator to spread the seal evenly and smoothly over the floor, taking care to avoid ponding or excessively thick areas of lacquer.

If required the lacquer may be lightly sanded between coats.

Prior to application of the final coat, lightly de-nib with an appropriate grade abrasive paper, remove dust by vacuuming.

Always check adhesion prior to application by applying to a small test area.

After Care

The newly finished floor reaches its final hardness and washability within 2 weeks.

Rough handling and washing are to be avoided during this period.

Stained surfaces can be cleaned with a moist cleaning cloth or mop - Use a neutral detergent.

Very dirty surfaces can later be cleaned with a slightly alkaline universal washing detergent.
