Bona Traffic HD is the new improved Traffic floor varnish. This two component, waterborne floor lacquer is designed for the heaviest of traffic areas in both commercial and domestic environments.
Bona Traffic HD has 40% lower solvent content and 40% increased durability than the original Traffic. Can be subjected to wear and tear after 24 hours.
Comprises 4.5L of varnish + 450ml of hardener (included per 5L).
Care should be taken at all times to ensure that surfaces to be coated have been well sanded and are free of all contaminates including sanding dust, grit, dirt, oil, wax and any other contaminates. The final stages of sanding should be done with a sanding disk, screen or good quality sandpaper with a paper grit of 120 of finer.
General conditions to determine if an overcoating of Bona Traffic is possible
Bona Traffic HD will normally have very good adhesion to pre-varnished flooring, this said however, it is advisable to check the intercoat adhesion prior to overcoating. To check intercoat adhesion, apply a coat of Bona Traffic HD to a pre-prepared area. Allow the coating to set for 3 days then scratch the treated floor surface gently with a coin, if the Bona Traffic finish stays firmly attached to the surface, the adhesion is satisfactory and the main application can begin.
Always thoroughly read the manufacturers guidance and instructions on the container or tin including any mixing and usage instructions on associated products.
Before applying Bona Traffic HD, it is important that the container is shaken thoroughly prior to use, this also applies if the product is to be split into other containers in smaller quantities. Add 10% Traffic Hardener to the finish and shake immediately for a minimum of 1 minute to ensure a thorough mix of the finish and hardener.
Once the hardener has been added to the Bona Traffic finish, the mixture of finish and hardener should be used within 5 hours at a temperature of around 20C, high temperatures will reduce the usability time of the mixed product.
Bona Traffic is best applied with a roller and with a smooth flowing action, care should be taken to avoid accumulations of the finish on the floor, room application and drying temperature must not fall below 13C.
An average drying time of 3-4 hours at 20 degrees / 60% RH
Good advice from the technical phone line and it does exactly what it says on the bottle. It also goes a long way.
Product just as described and delivered on time
WOOD FINSISES DIRECT IS A SIMPLE AND EASY WEB SITE TO NAVIGATE AROUND. THE SERVICE IS EXCELLENT AS THEY KEEP YOU UP TO DATE WITH THE DELIVERY SCHEDULE. IN SHORT A PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH
Very easy to apply but poor support from Bona when I sanded the first coat and encountered issues.
The instructions that come with the two 5 litre containers are easy to understand. The Traffic hardener bottle is clearly marked to add the correct amount of hardener to the Bona Traffic HD Silk Matt floor varnish.
Easy to mix and apply - great hard-wearing finish
2 coats applied after the primer. Good coverage
Fantastic product, easy to use
Goes on well be interested to see if it holds up alot better than the mega which is already pretty good...
For wood floors we never use anything else. Perfect every time
This product is easy to use and has produced an excellent finish. You must be well prepared as you can not stop until you have finished the floor, as a dry line forms very quickly.
We have used this product since our wooden floors were new. It is excellent to protect the floor from the heavy traffic in our house.
Thanks for the review, I'm glad that you are pleased with the product.
With little effort the finish achieved looked superb. So easy to use and has excellent application properties
Extremely durable, enhances wood without appearing plasticy.
You can apply 2/3 coats in 1 day or night
Easy to mix and apply. Seems to adhere well to the wood. We have had Bona Traffic on freshly sanded oak for 1 year - and it has worn well. The Bona Traffic HD was for additional area to patch in. The products look the same when applied. Would make more sense if the bottles were supplied as full 5 litres - as this would make part-bottle mixing easier.
Easy to apply giving a good finish with a roller. I hope that it is going to last a long time as it is not cheap. I would say that a light sanding after the primer coat makes a big difference to the final finish or did on my parquet floor, sadly I did not have time to do this in all the rooms
Mixed well, went down nicely and laid flat as you like. I was using it on table top, brushing and rolling. Worked ever so well, very happy and so was client. Many Thanks for all the help.
Excellent product, easy to apply and very good finish. Excellent customer service and info.
