Application guide
Hardwood Floor Finishes

1

Soak the applicator with finish and apply carefully on the edges of the surface to finish.

2

Pour a line of finish directly on the floor following the wood boards. The size of the line will get smaller as the surface to cover decreases. Repeat if necessary.

3

Soak the applicator with finish and and slowly drag the applicator keeping it at a 45° angle to always bring the excess liquid towards the untreated section. The application must be executed in a continuous movement. Do not apply any pressure on the applicator; the movement must be soft and easy. The surface should have a wet look.

4

At the end of the row, do not raise the applicator and turn it in a half-circle and continue the application going the opposite direction on a distance of approximately 12 inches (30 cm).

5

Before continuing in the other direction, apply pressure on the applicator to squeeze out liquid and lean the applicator to the wall and execute a fly off motion.

6

Follow the same procedures for the rest of the surface.

7

At about 15 to 30 inches (38 to 76 cm) of the wall, turn 90° and apply the finish the opposite way of the wood boards. Bring the finish back towards you while moving to the door.

8

As you are not following the wood boards anymore, don't forget to smooth out marks and lines. Note: Avoid to retouch a section that started to dry, because it can leave visible marks. Even if you see small streaks or marks on the wet finish, they will disappear during the drying process.

9

Apply a light pressure on the applicator in order to squize out liquid in excess. Note: if needed, remove the remaining and put it in a container.

10

End the application in front of the door by smoothing out gently the marks and the lines by doing the fly off movement.
