PROPERTIES

FLOOR VERNIS is a single pack clear metal floor varnish, enriched with polyurethane-modified alkyd resins for added durability. It is for use on new or oxidised metal floor structures where the natural look of the metal surface is to be maintained. Resistant to both mechanical and chemical abrasion FLOOR VERNIS is easy to apply and hardwearing.

Functions

  • Decorates and Protects.
  • Hardwearing – Excellent resistance to wear, abrasion and scratches.
  • Anti-slip
  • Expands and contracts with the structure – No peeling.
  • Easy application.
  • Washable.
  • Maintains the natural look of the surface.

WHERE TO USE

  • Interior.
  • New or oxidised metal surfaces.
  • Corridors, Offices, Stairways, Floors…

SURFACE PREPARATION

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of all grease, oil, salt and other surface contamination.
Use an appropriate solvent depending on the substrate and contamination e.g. PURATROL, Acetone, Water etc. to clean the surface and prior to any of the following preparation processes.

Ferrous Metals (New or Rusted):

  • Remove all traces of mill scale, rust, rust scale and other foreign matter by blasting, grinding or mechanical abrasion.
  • Round off any sharp edges to allow better film build.
  • Remove all preparation residue by vacuum cleaner, air blower or stiff clean brush. If required and desired wipe over surface with a cloth soaked in a fast flash off solvent e.g. Acetone (NOT White Spirit) to remove any remaining dust residue. Allow to dry.
  • Apply an application of OWATROL OIL and allow to dry.

Non-ferrous Metals (New or Oxidised)

  • Abrade surface using appropriate grade abrasive paper or a phosphoric passivating solution e.g. PURA-TROL (See “Dilutions”).
  • For Aluminium surfaces ensure abrasive is compatible.
  • Abraded surfaces should be thoroughly dusted off and wiped with a cloth, soaked in a fast flash off solvent e.g. Acetone (NOT White Spirit) to remove any remaining dust residue. Allow to dry.
  • Apply an application of OWATROL OIL and allow to dry.

Rusted Surfaces (To maintain the rust appearance)

  • Remove all loose and flaking rust back to a sound surface and edge by wire brush or scraping
  • Thoroughly dust off.
  • Apply OWATROL OIL to saturation and allow to dry.

Previously Coated Surfaces

  • Remove all previous coatings by suitable means - blasting, grinding, mechanical abrasion or stripping e.g. DSP 800* to restore the surface to its original condition.
  • After stripping neutralise the surface with Acetone or warm water.
  • Allow to dry.
  • If required abrade surface with appropriate grade abrasive.
  • Thoroughly dust off.
  • Apply an application of OWATROL OIL and allow to dry.

Note: Where the surface is rinsed with water, allow to dry 24 to 72 hours before applying OWATROL OIL.

Application

  • Use as is. Do not thin.
  • Stir well before and during use.
  • Apply 1st coat of FLOOR VERNIS and allow to dry 24 hours.
  • Sand surface with 280 grit abrasive and thoroughly dust off.
  • Apply 2nd coat of FLOOR VERNIS.
  • Note: Adding OWATROL OIL to FLOOR VERNIS, makes brushing easier and gives FLOOR VERNIS even greater flexibility, further reducing the risk of peeling and cracking.

Recommendations after Application

  • Clean all tools and equipment with White Spirits while still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper.

Maintenance

  • FLOOR VERNIS in good condition:
  • Sand surface with 280 grit abrasive and thoroughly dust off.
  • Apply 1st coat of FLOOR VERNIS with 25% OWATROL OIL added.
  • Allow to dry 24 to 48 hours.
  • Apply 2nd coat of FLOOR VERNIS.
  • FLOOR VERNIS in poor condition
  • See “Previously Coated Surfaces” in “Surface Preparation” above.
  • Apply FLOOR VERNIS as directed in “Application” above.
