^ No sanding required.
No sanding is required for pre-coated timber floors, preparation steps below must be followed. Please note new timber must be sanded.
Remove stains, dirt, wax, grease and oil with mineral turpentine.
Remove any polish with a suitable floor polish remover.
Note: Floors with highly visible scratches, imperfections or floors that are severely worn must be sanded prior to coating.
Sand the surface smooth using 180 - 240 grit sandpaper. Sand only in the direction of the grain. Remove all traces of sanding dust.
Previously coated floors & timber floating floors
Thoroughly clean the surface with Cabot's Floor Clean and allow to dry. Apply one coat to a small test area. Allow to dry for 3 hours. Press sticky tape firmly to the surface and pull off quickly. If the coating comes off, sanding back to a sound surface will be required.
