Bona Traffic HD is widely used in hotels, restaurants and airports worldwide, where short downtime is essential and is part of the Bona's Floor Product Range for preparing, protecting and caring for commercial and domestic floors.

Ensure floor is free from all contaminates including sanding dust, grit, dirt, oil and wax before applying.

Preparation of pre-varnished floors

Bona Traffic HD will normally have very good adhesion to pre-varnished flooring, 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.

Preparation of wax, oiled or polished floors

Floors pre-treated with waxes, polishes or other similar products cannot be overcoated with Bona Traffic HD and should be fully sanded back to bare wood to at least 120 grit, then prime.

Preparation of bare wood

A suitable Bona Primer should be used before applying 2 coats of Bona Traffic HD.

Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility, consulting instructions on the container. If mixing smaller quantities of lacquer then pour the required amount of lacquer into a separate can.

  1. Add appropriate mix of hardener to the lacquer
  2. Shake immediately for a minimum of 1 minute
  3. Insert filter ready for pouring
  4. Apply with a smooth flowing action, avoiding build up
  5. Apply 1 or 2 coats according to preparation guidelines

Drying times: 2-3 hrs ready for re-coating, 24 hours for light use, 7 days for full hardness

Cleaning Solutions

There are a range of pH-balanced Bona Floor Cleaners depending on the needs and requirements of the project. For regular cleaning the pre-mixed, ready-to-go formulas provide a quick solution whilst the concentrated products are good for scale of economy and deeper cleaning requirements.


For maintenance and long term protection of the surface, floors can be overcoated at intervals with additional coats of lacquer in accordance with technical instructions.

Scheptical but pleasantly surprised by Stephen Walsh

Two part mix but basically mix up what you need, 300g of Bona Traffic and 30g of the activator did around three to four square meters with a roller, kitchen timer on for four hours and its done, second coat the day after and the third has yet to be applied but so far its very good, looks nice and the sheen is just nice, was sceptical but I'm now pleased that I used this product.

Easy to apply, perfect finish and hard as nails. We used it on floor boards that were put down circa 1850 and it worked extremely well.

Quality product, easy to apply, no fumes, clean the brush in water by David Martin

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.
