Bona Traffic Compatibility with stains and sealers: Bona Traffic will adhere to most oil based stains, sealers and finishes after proper preparation and dry times. Stain, sealer and finish results may vary widely depending on the wood species, especially on oily and resinous Exotics. ALWAYS PREPARE A SAMPLE OR TEST AREA TO DETERMINE COMPATIBILITY, APPEARANCE AND DESIRED RESULTS.
THE RECOMMENDED BONA TRAFFIC FINISH SYSTEM: Apply a Bona water based sealer or Bona oil based stain and 2 coats of Bona Traffic floor finish. Follow label directions. Adding a third coat of Bona Traffic is recommended in heavy-traffic commercial and residential ares.
CURING: The curing process takes approximately 7 days, (75% cured after 1 day, 90% after 3 days). Do not replace area rugs until the floor has fully cured. The floor may be walked on after 24 hours, but remains susceptible to scuffing or marring until completely cured. Furniture may be placed onto floor after 72 hours (90% cured). Do not drag or slide furniture. Use only a dry Bona Microfiber Mop or cloth for cleaning during the first week.
CLEAN-UP: Application tools should be cleaned with water and stored in an airtight container.
FLOOR CARE: Put walk-off mats at all entrance doorways to minimize dirt and grit. Sweep or vacuum daily and damp-wipe as needed with Bona® Hardwood Floor Cleaner. Use felt pads under furniture legs and appliances.
Apply Bona Traffic with a t-bar applicator or Bona roller. Use cut-in pads for tight areas. Use a clean applicator sleeve for sealer and a separate clean applicator sleeve for each coat of Bona Traffic.
