Originally designed for use in busy commercial areas such as shopping centres and other public locations, Bona Traffic HD Anti Slip is equally suitable for use on stairs and in retirement homes and even areas wet with water become more resistant to slipping.

Bona Traffic HD comes supplied with the required amount of hardener and is formulated to meet the highest standards for slip resistance in commercial areas, staircases or other situations with an increased risk of spillage and slipping.

Ensure floors to be treated are clean, dry and free of dust, dirt and other surface contaminants.

  • Floors that have been previously finished in a polyurethane varnish can usually be over-coated with this product but a test area for compatibility is important
  • If polishes or waxes have been used on top of the existing polyurethane varnish then they need to be completely removed prior to finishing with Bona Traffic
  • Floors that have an existing Bona varnish on them can be overcoated with this product
  • If Bona Polish has been used for maintenance then Bona Polish Remover should be used before an application of Bona Prep which helps the Bona Anti Slip adhere to your existing Bona varnish

Always do a small test area before starting any project to test for compatibility and consistency of the final finish.

Initial Procedure

  1. Determine how much material is required, and shake the bottle thoroughly before decanting any finish
  2. Add Traffic HD Hardener to the lacquer at the addition rate as detailed on the scales on the bottles, and immediately shake the mixture thoroughly for 1 minute
  3. Insert the enclosed strainer
  4. The mixture of hardener and lacquer should be used directly or at least within 4 hours of mixing

Applying Bona Traffic HD Anti Slip

  1. Apply the lacquer using a microfibre roller
  2. Roll with a smooth, flowing motion alternately across and with the grain of the wood avoiding accumulations of the product
  3. Always maintain a "wet edge" to avoid overlaps
  4. Allow to dry properly before applying further layers
  5. Anticipate slightly longer drying time for each layer that is applied
  6. If necessary make an intermediate sanding using a screen and remove dust before applying a final layer of lacquer
  7. If the previous layer of lacquer has been allowed more than 24 hours drying time then an intermediate sanding is always required

Some points of note

  • Floor will take light foot traffic approximately 8 hours after the final application and may be put into full use after 12 hours
  • Allow the surface to dry for at least 3 days before using carpets or other floor coverings
  • Avoid placing heavy objects on the and avoid damp mopping the floor during this time

Regular Cleaning

Floors can be cleaned with Bona Wood Floor Cleaner and Bona Wood Floor Spray Mop. For public areas it may be necessary to introduce a machine based cleaning programme.


Worn surfaces can be renewed by applying a fresh coat of Bona Traffic HD Anti Slip, following the Preparation and Application instructions above.

Excellent finish by Mr R Sinclair

Having spent hours on my knees restoring thr old oak floor in our bathroom, I wanted a good non-slip finish. Having previously used Bona Traffic in our hall, I went for Bona Non-slip. It is easy to mix and apply, and the finish is superb. The only way it could be improved would be if it was supplied with a small measuring pot for the hardener; I eventually bought an Oxo kitchen one! But that is a niggle, the floor looks fabulous with a nice Matt finish. Bona isn't cheap, but it is well worth the expense and so much better than the standard off the shelf products.

Spend a little more for a big benefit by Barrie Charlesworth

Even the Restaurant customers noticed what a difference to a floor. We listened to the Wood Finishes Direct customer adviser. I wanted the most advertised-on-TV product but it was suggested that Bona Prime Traffic Anti Slip would be better, especially if primed first. It's early days yet but it is definitely non-slip and looks as good as the day after it was applied. Thanks for a good lesson. Even the damaged table leg does not scratch it.
