Surface Preparation and Application
Sand parquet and board floors mechanically and fill holes over 0.5 mm wide with a putty made of wooden sanding dust and Parketti-Ässä lacquer. Apply the putty to the whole floor with a stainless steel spatula with crossed strokes. Sand after approx. one hour in the direction of the grain. Pour the lacquer on the floor and spread with a stainless steel trowel tightly in direction of the wood grain and texture. Allow to dry for approximately 1 hour and if needed sand to de nib the surface. Remove sanding dust carefully with a vacuum cleaner. Apply 1-2 steel trowel strokes with the Floor Lacquer. Allow the surface to dry 30-60 minutes between each layer.
Previously lacquered / painted parquet and wooden floors: Clean the wooden floor from dirt, wax and grease. Sand down surfaces in poor condition to bare wood and apply lacquer like instructed above. Remove sanding dust carefully with a vacuum cleaner and wipe the surface with a damp, lint-free and clean cloth. Before lacquering, check the suitability of Parketti-Ässä on previously treated floors by lacquering a small test area. Apply one or two coats with a roller.
Uneven wooden floors: Apply to uneven wooden floors by brush. Apply a thin layer and allow to dry at least 1 hour. Continue few boards at a time following the wood grain. Spread the lacquer evenly, avoid rubbing circular movements. Sand the surface and remove sanding dust carefully. Apply the second layer and allow to dry approx. 3 hours before applying the third thicker coat
