For most applications, one coat of PolyWhey 3000 Wood Floor Sealer and 2-3 coats of PolyWhey 3500 Wood Floor Finish are recommended. Add additional coats of PolyWhey 3500 for commercial or heavy-traffic residential flooring. PolyWhey 3500 will adhere to bare wood and most stain bases, sealers, and finishes after proper preparation and dry times. Wood species can affect the stain, sealer and finish results. Prepare a sample board or test area to confirm desired appearance and compatibility. Prepare your surface by sanding and preparing the floor using NWFA industry standards. Vacuum and wipe surface clean prior to coating.
Recommended applicators include a T-bar, roller, or painters pad
- Stir well prior to use.
- Use a dampened T-bar sleeve, roller sleeve or painters pad and pull the finish with the grain of the wood.
- Apply two to three coats. Allow the first coat to dry 2 hours (High humidity and/or low temperature conditions may increase dry time). Apply in temperatures s between 65°F-80°F with a relative humidity of 40%-60%.
- Between coats: For best results, abrade after each finish application with a fine 220 grit paper. For PolyWhey 3500, abrade if 24 hours have passed since the previous coat was applied. Always vacuum and tack thoroughly with a clean, damp cloth.
Allow one week for full product cure. Furniture may be replaced after 72 hours, with protectors. Use only dry mop for cleaning during the first week.
