APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
The wooden surface has to be dry and free from dirt, wax and grease.
The temperature of the air and surface should be at least +15ºC, and the relative humidity of the air 30 - 80 %.
Preparation
Sand the floors in direction of wood texture or light from window (sanding paper n:o 100 or 120). Remove sanding dust carefully with vacuum cleaner.
Priming
Priming of sanded bare wooden floors:

Shake Parketti-Ässä Floor Lacquer thoroughly before starting and occasionally during application. Pour the lacquer on the floor and spread with a stainless steel trowel tightly in direction of the wood grains and texture. Allow to dry approx. 1 hour and if needed, sand matt (sanding paper n:o 150). Remove sanding dust carefully with a vacuum cleaner. Apply 1-2 steel trowel strokes with the Floor Lacquer. Allow the surface to dry 30-60 minutes between each layer.

Lacquering

Shake Parketti-Ässä Floor Lacquer thoroughly before starting and occasionally during application. Apply Parketti-Ässä Floor Lacquer 2-3 times using a flotex or mohair spatula or 1-2 times with a roller.(Note! No roller application for gloss lacquer).
Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with water. Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner) is recommended when cleaning hardened lacquer from the brush.
Maintenance instructions
Maintenance lacquering: Industrially treated or previously lacquered/painted parquet and wooden floors:

Shake Parketti-Ässä Floor Lacquer thoroughly before starting and occasionally during application. Clean the slightly worn wooden floor from dirt, wax and grease. Sand down surfaces in poor condition to bare wood and apply lacquer like instructed above. Sand the surface matt with a grinding machine (sanding paper n:o 120 or 150). Remove sanding dust carefully with a vacuum cleaner and wipe the surface with a damp, lint-free and clean cloth. Before lacquering, check the suitability of Parketti-Ässä on previously treated floors by lacquering a small test area. Apply Parketti-Ässä Floor Lacquer 2-3 times using a flotex or mohair spatula or 1-2 times with a roller. (Note! No roller application for gloss lacquer).

Uneven wooden floors:
Shake Parketti-Ässä Floor Lacquer thoroughly before starting and occasionally during application. Uneven wooden floors are lacquered using a brush. First apply a thin layer and allow to dry at least 1 hour. Continue few boards at a time according to wood grains.
Spread the lacquer evenly, avoid rubbing circular movements. Sand the surface and remove sanding dust carefully. Apply the second layer and allow to dry approx. 3 hours before applying the third layer. The third layer should be thick.
