  4. With the Finitec’s polishing machine, available in a majority of our retailers, roughen your surface in following the machine’s user guide. This simple step allows your surface to be free of all the remaining gloss and create a good adhesion to evenly apply the new finish;
  5. Some areas of your rooms can be more worn out than others. On those spots, apply the Finitec Age-TECH. It will gives back to your used surface the same yellowish tint than the rest or your floor. Follow the product’s instruction on the container;
