Classic Clear Floor Finish, Gloss or Satin

A clear, oil based polyurethane floor finish that produces a tough, abrasion resistant coating. Floorclear is easy to apply and has been formulated using a solvent lower in odour than traditional polyurethane coatings.

Available in satin and gloss.

surface preparation

New or Bare Timber/Cork
Punch exposed nails below the surface. Fill holes or imperfections with timber putty after the first coat of Floorclear, making sure to match the putty colour with the coated timber colour. Sand timber to an even, smooth surface. Vacuum and wipe to remove dust.

Prepare uncoated cork tiles in accordance with the supplier's recommendation.

For porous timbers such as pine, apply one coat of  Feast Watson Timber Primer after sanding to ensure the top coats will absorb evenly.

For oily timbers such as tallowwood, brush box and cypress pine, apply one coat of Feast Watson Proofseal after sanding to prevent the timber oils from discolouring the coating.

Previously coated surfaces
Clean surface with Feast Watson Floorcelan and allow to dry. Sand surface thoroughly until a uniform matt appearance is achieved. Vacuum and wipe to remove dust.

Check adhesion by applying Floorclear to a small test area. Allow to dry for 24hrs then firmly press a strip of sticky tape over the test area and rip off quickly. If coating is removed, it will not adhere to the surface so the surface needs to be sanded back to bare timber. If coating is not removed, sand the test area back to a uniform matt surface.

If previous coating has worn back to expose bare timber it must be completely removed.

Proofseal

Application

Surfaces to be coated must be dry and free from all dirt, dust, grease, wax, polish and oil. Floorclear should be mixed thoroughly, with a flat blade stirrer, before and during application, taking care NOT to introduce bubbles.

Apply with a Feast Watson Floor Finish Applicator, brush or short nap mohair roller. Work along the whole length of 3 to 4 floorboards at a time, maintaining a wet edge to prevent lap marks and lay off in the direction of the grain. Take care to not introduce bubbles.

When the first coat is thoroughly dry, lightly sand and vacuum to remove dust.

Apply second coat as outlined above. A third coat may be required on porous timber or cork to achieve desired gloss level.

Staining
Stain bare timber after sanding using Feast Watson Prooftint or Feast Watson Liming White as per the application instructions.

Seal porous timber such as pine with one coat of Feast Watson Timber Primer prior to staining to ensure the stain absorbs evenly.

To stain flooring, mix Prooftint with Feast Watson Prooftint Colour Reducer to allow time to evenly work the stain across the floor. Test the colour mix on off-cuts of flooring to confirm the colour before staining the whole area.

Apply stain to the floor with a Floor Finish Applicator as per Prooftint instructions. Allow 12 hours to dry before applying Floorclear.

Floorclear cannot be tinted with Prooftint.
