NEW BARE TIMBER. Sand timber to an even, smooth surface. Clean oily timbers such as Brushbox, Spotted Gum, Cypress and Tallowwood with methylated spirits and allow to dry. Prepare cork in accordance with cork manufacturer’s specifications. PREVIOUSLY FINISHED SURFACES. Remove any polishes with an appropriate floor stripper. Wash the surface using Cabot’s ® Floor Clean™ and allow to dry. Sand to a uniform dull finish. Vacuum and wipe off dust. Check for adhesion by applying UltraFloor SlipResistant to a small test area. Allow to dry for 24 hours then firmly press a strip of sticky tape over the coating and rip off quickly. If the coating is removed, sand the full surface back to bare timber. If the coating is not removed, sand the test area back to the dull finish. Note: If patches of the previous coating have worn back to expose bare timber, the full floor must be sanded back to bare timber.
Stir thoroughly before and during use with a flat blade stirrer. Do not thin. Cut in around edges with a narrow brush or applicator. Apply an even, generous coat with a lambswool applicator, short nap roller or quality long bristle brush. Work along the complete length of three to four boards at a time, keeping a wet edge to prevent lapping or join marks. Lay off lightly in the direction of the grain. Do not overwork the coating as this will result in a patchy, uneven finish. Allow a minimum of four hours to dry. Apply two more coats as above. 3 coats are required to exceed P4 and meet P5 slip resistance standards. Do not apply in temperatures above 35°C or below 10°C. Do not sand between coats.
Do not apply wax or polish over UltraFloor SlipResistant. • Regularly clean floors with Cabot’s Floor Clean. • Surfaces should be recoated before UltraFloor SlipResistant has worn away to expose bare timber, or slip resistance has reduced. Sand to a uniform dull surface and wipe away dust. Apply one to two coats following application instructions. • If patches of floor have been worn back to bare timber, the coating must be fully removed by sanding and the surface prepared as per instructions for new timber.
