Master Optima Lacquer is a fast-drying, water-based floor lacquer that has been formulated to leave wood with a durable and resistant surface. The high solids content humidifies the wood slightly, leaving the surface with a rich and full appearance. The lacquer is easy to apply and has good resistance to water and chemicals, making it ideal for offices and other commercial areas with medium traffic. This indoor climate labelled lacquer is applied in a convenient and safe way, and ensures a comfortable indoor climate afterwards.
It is important that both wood and lacquer have a temperature of min. 15°C (preferably around 20°C) and air humidity of approx. 50%. Make sure that the room is well-ventilated for optimal evaporation and drying time. For the final sanding to bare wood, use grit 180 sandpaper or sanding pad. Vacuum thoroughly and wipe the floor down afterwards, using a tightly-wrung water-soaked mop/cloth. The floor must be completely dry before priming or lacquering. When priming, use WOCA Master Base Primer for newly sanded wood to reduce side bonding. Alternatively, try WOCA Master Multi Primer for exotic wood species or old wood previously treated with oil or wax.
Primer and a coat of Master Optima Lacquer, gloss 70 should be applied undiluted, using a brush or roller. Leave the surface to dry until next day.
Sand the surface with grit 220-250 and vacuum clean the surface thoroughly.
Apply another coat of undiluted Master Optima Lacquer. A third or fourth coat of lacquer may be needed to obtain gloss 70.
The freshly-lacquered floor is suitable for cautious use after approx. 5 hours. Do not place furniture etc. on the floor until at least 24 hours after the final coat of lacquer. The floor will be ready for normal use after approx. 5-7 days, after which rugs etc. can be placed on the floor.
