Bona Amber Primer is a water-based wood primer for domestic and commercial flooring. Produces a rich, amber wood colouration on wooden flooring, similar to that of traditional solvent-based lacquers but with none of the hazards associated. It is ideal for floors with underfloor heating and/or moving floors such as end grain or plank floors. GreenGuard approved for low indoor emissions.
Looking for an alternative wood primer? Try one of the following Bona primers:
|Bona Classic Primer||A trade quality water-borne wood primer for use on all wood floors|
|Bona Natural Primer||A wood floor primer designed to preserve the look of raw, untreated wood|
|Bona Intense Primer||A high viscosity, single component, 100% polyurethane primer for wooden floors|
|Bona White Primer||A high quality wood primer that creates a 'white-washed' effect on wood flooring|
Ensure floor to be treated is acclimatised to its end-use environment. The surface must be sanded back to bare wood, dry and free from any sanding dust, oil, wax or other contaminants.
Always do a test area before starting any project to to asses product suitability and finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times.
Allow product to reach room temperature. Optimal application conditions are between 18-25°C and 30-60% relative air humidity. High temperatures and low humidity shorten drying time, low temperatures and high humidity lengthen drying time. Minimum temperature for use is 13°C.
Please Note: Bona Amber Primer should never be used as a standalone treatment for timber floors.
Once the 2nd coat of primer has dried, a top coat of one of the following Bona water-borne lacquers must be applied:
|Bona Mega Varnish||A clear, water-based, ready-to-use, polyurethane varnish for wooden flooring|
|Bona Traffic HD||A two-part waterborne lacquer for heavy traffic environments|
|Bona Traffic HD Anti Slip||A two-part, polyurethane anti-slip varnish for wooden floors and stairs|
For domestic floors, 1 coat of lacquer is recommended, 2 coats for commercial floors. The top coat will further enhance the colour.
