How To Use The Bona White Primer
1. Prepare the floor. You're giving it a fresh start. The goal here is to get rid of previous treatments, hence the floor will need to be sanded down to the bare wood. Remove the sanding dust, and clean off contaminates like dirt and wax.
2. Apply the Bona White Primer. Ensure that the coat is uniform, to avoid accumulation on different segments of the surface, which results in colour variation.
3. Allow at least a 2-hour drying time.
4. Sand using a grit of 150 or higher to reduce the grain raise. You can use a sanding screen or the Bona Scrad system.
5. Apply the second coat.
Repeat steps 3 -5 for the different number of coats, to get you the colouration you desire for your floor. 3 coats of the Bona White Primer are usually sufficient for a truly white impression.
Tips For Using The Bona White Primer
· It's recommended that you combine the Bona White Primer with a Natural, Extra Matt or even Matt Bona lacquer for stunning results. For instance, for the natural wood impression you can apply 1 coat of the primer and 2 coats of the lacquer; for the white tint look use 2-3 primer coats with 1 lacquer coat.
· Plan the application for days with suitable conditions for the drying time. The higher the temperature and lower the humidity, the faster the coats will dry. Optimal conditions are 18-25C (temperature) and 30-60% RH (relative air humidity). Avoid application when it’s below 13C.
· Shake the Bona White Primer container before use.
