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.
- Previously waxed, polished or oiled floors cannot be overcoated with Bona Mega unless sanded back to bare wood
- Bona will not guarantee adhesion when over-coating non-bona varnishes
- Apply Bonakemi Mega to a small test area to confirm performance and compatibility
- For application to bare floors, a coat of Bona Prime Classic reduces recommended number of coats to 2, otherwise 3 thin coats of Bona Mega is advised
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 with Bona Prep system in accordance with the instructions on the label. A sanding disc/screen or paper with a sandpaper grit of 150 should also be used. Apply the initial coat of Bona Mega with Bona Crosslinker.
With the Mega/Crosslinker mix, Bona Mega will normally have very good adhesion properties, however it is advisable to check the intercoat adhesion prior to overcoating. 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.
Floors coated with Bona Mega can be easily cleaned and maintained with the Bona Floor Cleaning Kit or Bona Spray Mop.
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.
