Technical data sheet

Surface preparation

The wood surface must be dry, well sanded and free from sanding dust and other dirt.

Application

Untreated and clean-sanded surfaces: Fill the gaps with GAP parquet putty. Prime the wooden surface with Teknos water-based primer lacquer according to the instructions. Intersand, if necessary, with sandpaper or an abrasive net n:o 150 after the first primer coat. Apply 2–3 coats of AKU DE LUXE parquet lacquer along the grain of the wood. Factory lacquered parquets or lacquered floors (maintenance lacquering): Intersand gently by using sandpaper or an abrasive net n:o 100–150. Remove the sanding dust with a vacuum cleaner and finish with a clean damp cloth. Apply one coat of AKU DE LUXE parquet lacquer with a stainless steel trowel and after that 1–2 coats with a flotex-, felt- or mohair trowel. Note! If wax has been used for floor care ensure the compatibility with the maintenance lacquer beforehand by consulting the producers. If the floor has previously been treated with oil, urethane or alkyd lacquer, the floor must be sanded to bare wood before lacquering. Uneven floors should be lacquered with a brush as follows: Apply first a thin coat of AKU DE LUXE parquet lacquer on the clean wooden surface. After the lacquer has dried, intersand gently by using sandpaper n:o 100–150. After careful cleaning apply two more coats of AKU DE LUXE parquet lacquer. Ensure that the previous lacquer coat has fully dried before applying a new one. Always stir lacquer thoroughly before use. Some rubber types in carpets and anti-slip materials may contain plasticisers that can cause permanent surface and colour damage to the lacquer and oil coat.

Application conditions

The surface to be varnished has to be dry. The moisture content of the wood should be 7 ±2 % by weight. The temperature of the air, the surface and the lacquer shall be above +18 - 24°C and the relative humidity of the air 40 - 60% during the time of application and drying.

Maintenance

The varnished surface reaches its final hardness and washability within 2 weeks. Rough handling and washing is to be avoided during this period. Stained surfaces can be cleaned with a moist cleaning cloth or mop. Use a neutral detergent. Very dirty surfaces can later be cleaned with a slightly alkaline universal washing detergent.
