étapes à suivre
Step 1 Finitec Surface Preparation
- Vacuum in order to eliminate dust and dirt on the floor.
- Pour a small quantity of Finitec Surface Preparation on the floor.
- Spread on a 50 sq. ft. (5 m²) area at a time using the Finitec applicator.
- Let work for 5 minutes.
- Wipe out all residues with the Finitec mop or damp cloths and rinse the surface 2 to 3 times with warm water.
- A second application may be necessary to remove all residues.
Step 2 Finitec Tonic
Shake well and wait a few minutes to allow bubbles to break. Proceed first to an adherence and compatibility test on a hidden area.
Soak the applicator with the Finitec Tonic and apply carefully on the edges of the surface to finish.
Note: This step is not mandatory.
Pour a line of Finitec Tonic directly on the floor following wood or laminate planks.
Soak the applicator with the Finitec Tonic and slowly drag the applicator keeping it at a 45° angle to always bring the excess liquid towards the untreated section.
Note: the applicator is leaning towards its front part and the back is slightly lifted from the ground during the whole operation. 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.
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).
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.
Follow the same procedures for the rest of the surface.
At about 15 to 30 inches (38 to 76 cm) of the wall, turn 90° and apply the two rows at the same time perpendicular to plank by bringing the liquid back towards you while moving to the door.
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, they will disappear during the drying process.
Apply a light pressure on the applicator in order to squeeze out the excess of liquid.
Note: if needed, remove the remaining Finitec Tonic and put it in a container.
End the application in front of the door by smoothing out gently the marks and the lines by doing the fly off movement.
