Easy to use and highly resistant to scratches, scuff marks and wear, it's easy to see why the Bona Mega product is a popular choice with DIY enthusiasts, hardwood flooring specialists and shop fitters alike.
Surfaces should be sanded back to bare wood and be free of all sanding dust, grit, dirt, oil, wax and any other contaminates. The final sanding should be done with a fine sanding disk, screen or good quality sandpaper with a sanding grit of 120 or finer.
Ensure contents is shaken thoroughly and always apply to a test area first. Bona Mega is best applied in thin coats with a roller in a smooth flowing action and avoiding any excess. Ensure room temperature does not fall below 13C during application and drying.
Application to pre-finished flooring
Ideally floors should be treated in accordance with the instructions on the label. A sanding disc/screen or paper with a sandpaper grit of 150 should also be used.
To check intercoat adhesion, apply a coat of Bona Mega to a small test area as described above i.e. sanded and clean, allow the coating to set for 3 days then scratch the treated floor surface gently with a coin. If the Bona Mega finish stays firmly attached to the test area, the adhesion is satisfactory.
Always thoroughly read the manufacturers guidance and instructions on the container or tin including any mixing and usage instructions on associated products.
For the best results, use Bona Floor Cleaner Spray or a damp mop. Never saturate wooden floors with water.
To restore the appearance of a dull floor use Bona Freshen Up from time to time. This will improve the appearance of the floor whilst still allowing further coats of Bona Mega to be applied at a later date without the need to sand the floor back to bare timber.
Bona Mega should be stored in a place where the temperature does not fall below 5℃ or exceed 25℃
Drying times may vary depending on room temperature and humidity - As a guide, In areas with a temperature of 20℃ and a humidity of 60%, allow 3 hours drying time between coats.
Floors will be ready for light foot traffic approximately 8 hours after the final coat has been applied. Bona Mega Varnish is fully cured in approximately a week and can then be cleaned using a damp cloth or mop with an appropriate floor cleaner. Rugs and carpet runners can also be laid after a week.
Our Junckers flooring was 10+ years old and thoroughly worn so we decided to renovate it ourselves to save some money. Wasn't sure where to start but the Wood Finishes Direct site had plenty of info to guide me... and lots of helpful reviews/comments for the product we chose: 2x 5L Bona Mega (in a silk/matt finish)... plus a 5% discount through QuidCo. Sanding the floors (conservatory, kitchen, hall and pantry) was hard work but the three coats have come up a treat... shiny but not glossy and looks fantastic. It was about 30m2 x3 coats and the product claimed coverage of 100m2 for the amount we bought... I'd say they were about right as we've got about 2L left. Anyway, I'll treat my floors a little kinder from now on (felt pads on chair feet etc.) and give the floor a light sand to key it, then a fresh coat on the well trodden areas every year or two. Very pleased as our floors are now transformed.
followed instructions (easy) and happy with end result.
I have used bona mega for17years now, it's the best product on the market for domestic use. I have tried all the cheaper products and although some are very good like junkers I always go back to bona it's worth that bit extra
Beautiful rich satin finish from the matt Bona. Left it three weeks to harden while we went off to Spain. Ordered 5pm, received next morning, amazing. Helpful web site for a skilled first timer at re- varnish.
Great coverage, easy to apply, and super finish
Very easy to apply (for a novice DIY-er) and delivered a super finish. Would definitely use again.
Used on reclaimed parquet flooring. Easy to use and gives a 1st class finish.
Very easy product to use and leaves your floor looking great
I've used Bona Mega for a few years now with no problems. It's easy to apply and drys fast. In good conditions you can get three coats on in a day. I think the best thing about it, is that it keeps the flooring light in colour and it's really tough.
Very happy with this product. Having (unfortunately) used a supposedly non-yellowing varnish from a high street vendor for another room i'm glad i spent more time researching and spent a bit more money to get the finish I was looking for. Very similar colour and tones to the natural state of the wood gives our floorboards the rustic yet clean look we were trying to achieve.
First class, looks great and goes a long way too
I loved this product, the silk matt finish worked out well. I was concerned that it would be too shiny and had intended to order matt. Felt calling it satin might have been less confusing. The finish was nice though.
This product is great, goes on well, dries fast and if applied well gives a good even coat. I was varnishing a 13 x 11m room and it took just over 1 hour with the 10'' Padco applicator I used less varnish than expected so did 4 coats onto bear wood rather than 3 with each coat 90 deg to itself and at the end it looked amazing. Pity it has to get walked on! Time will tell how hard wearing it is.
Great product very easy to apply and fantastic finish. Well worth the money
Good quality. Ideal for the floors. Looks good and I've been recommended that this product is hard wearing for our self catering cabin.
We moved into a house with a 1967 parquet floor with the original coating as they had put carpet over it. It has come up lighter (which is what we wanted) and looks like brand new ! We used a roller on a pole and a brush to do the edges. It took two of us inside of an hour to coat 2 rooms (40 sq m). The first layer we put on top of primer and it was not as easy so see where you had coated as the subsequent layers where it was sanded first. The finished floor looks like brand new and is beautiful. We had organised to stay with a neighbour for the night, but found it dried so quickly and once dry had hardly any smell so that, had we done the top layer earlier, we could have stayed at home! Thank you Bona.
Product was easy to apply, dried quickly and resulted in a finish exactly as advertised. Time will tell if the scratch resistance lasts.
Great product, coverage exactly as described. Instructions state that the wood primer is essential but I have just used 3 coats if varnish instead. Floor looks great, would definitely use again.
For a water based varnish it produced a very touch texture which really brought out a rich finish to my oak block floor. Being water based, short drying times add it easy to complete in no time.
Easy to apply water based product and a tough longlasting finish.
