F.A.Q. – Restoration

1 My floor is dull and has lost its luster. Is it possible to restore luster without sanding?
Simply use the Finitec Tonic for wood in two easy steps to give your floor a dazzling luster. First, use the Finitec Surface Preparation to remove any residues that have accumulated on your floor and have altered the luster. Then, apply the Tonic to restore your floor.

2 A year after I applied the Finitec Tonic for wood, can I used it a second time without sanding?
Yes. The Finitec Surface Preparation must be used before to remove any traces of greasy residue which can impair the adhesion of the product, and then apply the Tonic.

3 I need to replace a broken wood plank of my floor. Over the years, the finish on it turned yellow. How can I do to give the new wood plank the same color as the floor?
The Age-TECH gives you the opportunity to reproduce the yellowish color of an aged finish. You can apply the number of coats required to obtain the desired color. When the Age-TECH is completely dry, apply two coats of Finitec finish on the wood plank that has been replaced. You could also use our Finitec Synergy, a water base finish who gives you the same look of an oil finish.
The Age-TECH as of the Synergy are available on the online store.
