induro® SPORT Floor Lacquer
induro® SPORT is a tough resilient two pack waterborne polyurethane varnish especially formulated to be used on sports floors. Accredited with BS EN 15301 for rotational resistance and BS EN 14904 dry slip resistance, induro® SPORT meets international standards for multi-sport use. Highly resistant to scuffs and marks, SPORT is suitable for other domestic and commercial high traffic areas.
Use after sealing with induro® GP Seal or ISO Seal for a strong yet flexible coating. Maintain SPORT with induro® Maintenance products.
Prior to starting the sanding process the floor should be checked for any protruding nail or screw heads and these should either be removed or countersunk. All wooden floors requiring a varnish will have to be sanded. Newly laid floors are sanded to achieve a nice level floor and old floors are sanded to remove existing finishes and to level out worn and heavily used areas.
Sanding will have to be carried out in several grit stages and this will be dependent on the unevenness and general condition of the floor.
Morrells standard Light Fast range of stains give excellent grain definition and overall colour. Due to this range being spirit based (fast drying), care should be taken on application not to stain too large an area at once as this could lead to a patchy appearance once the stain is dry.
- Stain should be applied by brush/rag or mohair pad
- Remove excesses with a clean rag
It is important to remove as much of excess stain as possible so as not to create a film as this could result in poor adhesion of subsequent coats of varnish.
Stains intended for other uses i.e. decking, fencing, garden furniture etc should not be considered for floors as these will contain water-repelling properties, and therefore water based floor lacquers would not adhere to these stains.
- Do not denib the sealer
- Denib between coats of induro® SPORT
- mix 9 parts lacquer to 1 part 8CAT/SP by volume
- add catalyst into the can of lacquer, replace top, turn upside down and shake vigorously for 1 minute
- allow lacquer to stand for 5 minutes before use (use within 5 hours of mixing)
- apply using a short mohair roller or similar, or mohair flooring pad or t-bar applicator
- apply lacquer evenly making smooth passes, predominantly along the grain
- avoid pooling of lacquer
