Ronseal Diamond Hard Floor Varnish is suitable for use over most soft and hardwood flooring, as well as hardboard, chipboard and wood composite.

Please Note: Not to be used over laminate floors. Not suitable for commercial environments such as pubs, restaurants, community halls etc.

For Unvarnished Floors:

  1. Existing coatings such as oils, waxes, stains must be removed by sanding the surface back to clean, bare wood. Do not use an abrasive paper finer than 120 grade for the final sand
  2. Vacuum sanded floorboards thoroughly to remove all traces of sanding dust
  3. Fill any holes or surface imperfections with a suitable wood filler

For Varnished Floors:

  1. Lightly sand existing floor varnishes with 120 grade sandpaper to provide a key
  2. Vacuum area to remove all traces of sanding dust
  3. Varnish in poor condition such as cracking, peeling and flaking should be completely removed back to bare wood

Always do a test area before starting any project to test product performance and results. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Ensure that the room temperature is above 10℃. Remove all furniture and allow for good ventilation.

  1. Diamond Hard Varnish should be stirred thoroughly before and during application to ensure a consistent finish
  2. Using a good quality brush, start in the corner furthest from the door and work along the length of 2 floor boards at a time
  3. Apply 3 coats of Diamond Hard to give the best protection, leaving 2 hours between each coat
  4. Before the 3rd coat, give the floor a very light sand by hand along the length of the floorboards with 240 grit sandpaper (don't use a floor sander)
  5. Wipe down with a slightly damp cloth to remove the sanding dust
  6. Then apply 3rd coat

Ronseal Hard Floor Varnish is touch dry within 30 minutes, with a re-coat time of 2 hours.

Regular Cleaning

For everyday cleaning, floors treated with Diamond Hard Varnish can be vacuumed and dry swept with a broom to remove any surface dirt or grit which might cause scratches to the finish. If the floor surface is stained or marked, a damp (not wet) microfibre cloth or mop may be used.

Deep Cleaning

For more stubborn marks, an appropriate floor cleaning solution may be applied. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container.

Repair

To maintain the finish, simply apply a fresh coat of Ronseal wood floor varnish as required, following the Preparation and Application instructions.

Excellent by Mr P Jackson

Would certainly recommend and use again. Used satin on a softwood floor in my log cabin, I was able to give it 3 coats as it was so quick drying.

Easy to apply with an excellent finish! by Kish

Used this on a new floor, used a roller then a brush to smooth out the lines along the grain. Once dry no brush marks are visible. The product will require light sanding between coats for best results especially with new unfinished surfaces. best to build the product up in layers over time.

Hard wearing varnish for parquet floor by DavidM

Easy to use and fast drying so the required number of coats (I used five) can be completed in one day. Used this product on lounge and dining room floors that get a lot of foot traffic and I'm very pleased with the results.

Easy to use by Mark

This product is great to apply and clean up. It looks really good and didn't have to wait a long time between coats. It has the right amount of sheen and didn't colour or yellow the wood, just a little darker, but hardly noticable. As for being hard wearing- it seems resilient but I suppose we'll have to wait and see.
