A Look At The Bona White Primer
Wood floors are popular for their natural feel, durability, and their healthy attributes- like the low level of allergen accumulation. But you also want them to look stunning. The floor has a ripple effect onto the rest of the ambience. You don’t want faded or yellowing floors to set the tone for your dÌ©cor. Then there are those cases when the planks installed are of a low quality and quite frankly don’t look good- you may even be contemplating pulling them out and installing new ones. In addition, over time, the floors and get worn out, reducing their character and dragging down the rest of the establishment. Scuffs, scratches and colour variations on areas that are exposed to foot traffic and sunlight, compared to those that are hidden under the dining table, sofa, and other furnishings are common. You don’t need to replace the entire floor. Simply bring new life to it using the Bona White Primer.åÊ
You want a floor treatment that will make it look superb, and lengthen its life at the same time. After all, you spent loads of funds to install it, and you deserve to be able to enjoy it. The floor is under attack from all sorts of things, ranging from the incessant foot traffic, food and drink spills, to the scratches from sharp objects. Even activities such as scrubbing the floor to remove stubborn stains increase the amount of friction on the surface. You want to be certain that the products you use won’t get scrubbed off leaving you with a bare floor. You want to increase the durability of the wood and its ability to withstand the abuse it receives. The primer should bond strongly with the desired topcoat, to enhance these attributes, plus the value of the property as a whole. Turn to the Bona White Primer for your floor care needs.

DOs And DON’Ts Of The Bona White Primer
DO sand the floor in case there are previous treatments still on it. This is to remove the polishes and sealants, and expose the bare wood. You can use a 120 grit for the final sanding. Get rid of the sanding dust and also clean up the floor to ensure there are no grease spots, grime particles and wax spots left behind, that can affect the quality of the results.
DO use a roller to apply the Bona White Primer. It’s been specially designed for this, and will reduce your workload by a great extent. Remember to shake the container well before use.
DO apply the Bona White Primer along the grain of the wood. Avoid going diagonally or across it, which can cause application marks to be formed.åÊ
DO allow sufficient drying time in between coat applications. 2 hours should be enough. In addition, lightly sand the floor before you apply the next coat. This is to reduce the grain, and you can use a fine grit level, such as 150.
DO seal the floor with a protective lacquer after applying the Bona White Primer. You can use the Matt, Extra Matt, or Natural Bona lacquer in order to get superb results.åÊ
DON’T accumulate the primer on different sections of the surface. This will cause colour variations. Apply the Bona White Primer in an even coat, and also avoid overlapping.åÊ
DON’T apply the primer in temperature below 13C.
