  • Description

Bona Retarder is an additive that improves leveling and increases the wet/open time of Bona waterborne floor finishes. Keeping the finish wet/open longer gives you more time to work in large rooms before the finish starts to dry.  It is designed to be used when the indoor humidity is low and/or the temperature of the room is higher than normal. Using Bona Retarder will reduce the risk of the finish drying too quickly and leaving applicator or roller marks in the dried coat. Can also be added to Bona Sportive Paint for lower viscosity and better leveling.

• Facilitates application in dry and/or warm climatic conditions 
• Prolongs the open time 
• Minimizes the risk of overlapping and discolouration
  Can be added to any Bona waterborne finish (Bona Naturale®, Bona Traffic®, Bona Traffic HD®,
  Bona Mega®, Bona Mega HD, and Bona Novia™) to retard the drying/curing process.
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: Add one 5.4oz. bottle of Bona Retarder to 1 gallon of Bona waterborne finish (Bona Traffic, Bona Traffic HD, Bona Mega, Bona Novia) then shake thoroughly for 15 – 20 seconds. Once mixed, apply finish according to label instructions.
Stability – 1 year shelf life in unopened container
Packaging – 5.4 ounce plastic bottle
