Overcoating Information

Applying a new layer of finish to an existing coated floor is a quick cost-efficient way to extend the life of the floor and to avoid having to sand to bare timber.

Similarly the addition of a finish layer can give added wear resistance, a different sheen level or slip resistant properties to existing or factory prefinished flooring.Preparation of the existing surface is the key to a successful overcoating process.

The preparation method required differs depending upon the type of surface, its condition and the maintenance of the floor. It is recommended that Bona Traffic HD, Traffic HD Anti Slip or Bona Traffic be used for overcoating to ensure the best possible adhesion is obtained.The document below gives advice on how to prepare the surface of previously finished and UV coated floors prior to the application of a Bona finish. If you require any further advice then please contact Bona Australia via the details on the Contact page.
