If needed, intersand between coats with, for example, abrasive net or sandpaper grit 120. Felt trowel, lacquer roller or brush application: Apply one coat. Intersand between coats with, for example, abrasive net or sandpaper grit 120. If needed, apply another coat with a steel trowel. After priming, finish with Teknos water-based parquet lacquer.
