Resist The Slide With The Junckers HP Friction + Floor Lacquer
Bruises, cuts, fractures and dislocations- the injuries from slip accidents vary. They are all caused when a person’s footing loses traction with the floor. It may be highly polished, greasy, or wet from beverages like beer spilled onto it. In fitness centres the floor can be slippery simply due to the loads of sweat that get generated. At times you may not have enough time to keep running a mop over the affected area, which exposes the persons on it to risk- like during busy restaurant and bar hours. You can't exactly go halting the night party on the dance floor so that you can clear all the spills. The slips cause harm to various body parts, ranging from concussions when a person hits the head on the ground, to musculoskeletal injuries. One can end up with slipped discs in the vertebrae, and the nerves getting impinged. Serious injuries to the ankle, knees and back will leave the affected persons with long-term problems and significantly affect their quality of life. For your business, this will result in numerous work hours being lost, which has a negative impact on the productivity of your enterprise.

How To Use The Junckers HP Friction + Floor Lacquer
The process of getting the floor ready to receive the Junckers HP Friction + Floor Lacquer coats depends on its current state. If it is untreated or sanded, first clean it to remove substances like dust and grease which will affect the quality of the results. Apply a coat of Junckers PreLak or ProSeal, leave to dry and lightly sand along the wood grain using a 150-180 grit sandpaper. Then apply a sealant coat of the HP Commercial or Sport, allowing it to dry. The Junckers HP Friction + Floor Lacquer comes in as the final top coat. Floors that had been treated with wax or polish will need to be first sanded down to the bare wood. On the other hand, previously sealed floors will just need to be washed with the Junckers Sylva Neutraliser, and sanded to prepare them for the Junckers HP Friction + Floor Lacquer. To apply it, follow these steps:
1. First, you'll need to prepare lacquer and hardener mixture that you’ll use. Stir/shake the Junckers HP Friction + Floor Lacquer to distribute any settled product. Add the hardener, and stir again for at least 45 seconds. Leave the solution to stand for 10 minutes. Stir and shake again. Note that the mixing is using a ratio of 10 parts lacquer, to 1 part hardener.
2. Apply onto the surface of the floor. Don’t pour it directly, rather use a tool such as a brush, air/airless spray system, or even a short-haired mohair roller.
3. Allow 3 hours drying time.
4. Apply the second coat.
5. Allow to dry.
After you’re done with the application, clean the tools using soap and water. The floor will be ready to handle light traffic in 8 hours, and the Junckers HP Friction + Floor Lacquer coats will have been fully cured in 3 days.
