- Oily and resinous wood species such as teak should be coated immediately after machine sanding.
- All finishes should be shaken before use. Do this before vacuuming so that the air mixed into the finish during shaking has a few minutes to escape before use.
BEFORE USING THE FLOOR
- The floor can be used with caution 24 hours after the last coat is applied.
- Furniture can be placed after 24 hours.
- Allow the moisture to evaporate for one week before laying rugs.
- Final curing of surface after 2 weeks.
- Do not clean floor with water or detergents during the first month.
- Attach felt pads to the legs of chairs and tables in order to avoid scratching the finish.
- The surface must not be covered with non-porous protective materials
SYNTEKO CLASSIC DIRECTIONS FOR USE
PREPARATION OF UNFINISHED FLOORS OR FLOORS WHERE OLD FINISH MUST BE REMOVED SANDING
Sand floors using accepted MFMA, NWFA or NOFMA procedures (US). Machine sand the surface to remove old treatments and impurities in the wood. The first sanding is made with a coarse sandpaper and high roller pressure. Make the floor surface as even as possible. If the floor is uneven in spots, sand locally to even out these areas. The final sanding is made with 120 – 150 grit sandpaper or screen, and with the lowest possible roller pressure. If roller pressure is too high, the soft springwood may be compressed. When moisture from the finish affects such softwood, it will raise the grain When moisture from the finish affects such softwood, it will raise the grain of the floor by swelling back to its original volume. Vacuum and tack the floor before applying Synteko CLASSIC. Do not forget to remove dust on skirtings, windowsills, radiators, etc.
- The finish should be at room temperature of approx. 23°C (73°F).
- Floor temperature must be between 15 and 25°C (60 to 77°F)
- Floor moisture content must be between 5 and 15%
- Humidity must be 50 – 60 % RH
- Provide for good ventilation during the first application to increase air circulation and improve drying.
- Second and third applications should be made with normal ventilation, as draft over the finished surface induces an unfavourable drying procedure.
- Avoid direct sunshine during finishing as the curing process will be accelerated in such areas.
MIXING AND POT-LIFE
Shake containers well before mixing. Then mIx 1 part by volume of Synteko Hardener 1647 and 10 parts by volume of Synteko CLASSIC. Mixing can take place in plastic, glass or undameged enamelled vessel. Mix well but avoid forming air bubbles. The mixture can be used for 8 hours provided it is stored in a closed container.
After preparation of the surface, application of finish can take place with brush, roller or applicator. After drying, an intermediate sanding with used 120 grit sandpaper should be made. Then vacuum thoroughly and apply the second coat. In case a third coat is required, follow the same procedure. Porous wood species like pine, spruce and beech require three coats of finish, whereas other wood species normally require two coats.
SYNTEKO CLASSIC DIRECTIONS FOR USE TREATMENT OF PRE-FINISHED FLOORS
First, clean the floor with Synteko REMOVER mixed in water. Then sand or screen the floor using a very fine paper (180 – 240 grit) or an abrasive pad until surface has turned matte. Vacuum thoroughly, and tack the surface using a cloth dampened with ethanol to completely remove all the dust. Apply one or two coats of Synteko CLASSIC. Note:
When the surface has been screened, an adhesion test should be done. First, a small area is coated with finish. After it has dried, scrape the area with the edge of a coin tests the adhesion. If the finish layer loosens, it did not adhere correctly, and complete sanding to bare wood is necessary. Do not use Synteko CLASSIC for recoating of waterborne finishes, 2 – component solventborne polyurethane finishes or alkydbased finishes. Use Synteko STAR , two component, waterborne floor finishes for re- coating such finishes.
SYNTEKO SOLVENT BASED FINISHES CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Surfaces treated with Synteko floor finishes are easy to keep clean. Vacuum cleaning and, if necessary, mopping with a Synteko SUPER CLEAN 1697 solution and a well wrung cloth is normally sufficient. Marks from rubber heels, shoe polish, lipstick, ink, etc. should be removed immediately with Synteko REMOVER 1692 or with mineral spirits. Avoid scrubbing with coarse brush or strong detergents. Periodic use of Synteko NEWSHINE 1696 in high traffic areas will help to protect the floor. Synteko NEWSHINE 1696 can also be used to restore light scratch marks.
