Always clean meticulously with a vacuum cleaner after each sanding, including any dust traps (skirting, radiators, pipes, window sills, etc).

Sand wooden floor using appropriate system and abrasive grades up to grit No 80 or 100 depending on condition of surface and wood species. Use an edge sander for edges, a mechanical hand sander, chisel or scraper for corners.
Apply Lianfloor as per “Mixing and Application” instructions below.
Finish with finishing grade up to grit No. 120 or 150 depending on the wood species and thickness of wear layer.
If required treat new or old bare wood with DSP 800 to protect against fungal attack and blue stain prior to applying Lianfloor.

Course Grades – 24, 30, 36
Medium Grades – 40, 50, 60
Finishing Grades – 80, 100, 120, 150

Mixing & application

Mixing:

Shake Lianfloor well. Mix Lianfloor and sawdust in a stainless steel bucket or directly on the floor as detailed below.
Mix 15-20% sawdust from sanding grits No 80 or 100 with Lianfloor to make a smooth paste.
If after mixing the sawdust and Lianfloor the mixture seems too thick, add more Lianfloor to thin the mix to a smooth workable paste.

Application:

Apply mixture with spatula or filling knife working well in to joints, cracks etc. Allow to dry.
If filler has shrunk or sunk (concave) repeat the process to build up the filler to the level of the floor. Do not sand between applications.
When dry continue sanding process from the last grit used (No 80 or 100).
Meticulously vacuum all surfaces after each sanding.
Apply desired Owatrol floor finish.
