As Bona Traffic is the last layer applied to a hardwood floor, proper application is critical. One must be highly aware of the steps necessary to take in order to achieve the proper results. If you have questions, It is also imperative that a test is done on a separate board to make sure the result Bona Traffic produces is the one desired.
When ready to apply the finish, shake well and insert the included filter into the can. Apply the finish evenly. Allow coat to dry completely before starting another. Overall, the floor should receive a minimum of three coats of finish. An optional sanding may be done at this point with a screen grit of 150 or finer. Allow to dry properly before applying the next layer. Totally, the floor should receive minimum 3 layers of finish.
Recommended Application Tools: Bona Roller and Bona Applicator
