Natural Bourne Seal is a solvent based wood sealer.
Bourne Seal is a penetrative seal and if any traces of water, oil or grease or previous coating are present, it may not key to the surface and drying time and performance could be affected. For optimum results surfaces should be sanded to a fine finish and all dust removed. If oil wax or alternative seals have been previously used the appropriate chemical stripper may also be required before application. Apply a little amount to a test area first. Concrete floors should be left to cure for at least 3 months before sealing.
Once surface is prepared use a clean lambswool applicator or brush to apply a thin even coat well into surface, working with the grain, avoiding overlap. Allow to dry for a minimum of 8 hours, preferably 24 hours, then lightly rub down with fine sandpaper or a medium grade nylon pad. Remove surplus dust before applying second coat. Ventilate room and allow to dry and harden before use. Vacuum sweeping and damp mopping is recommended for ongoing maintenance.
Coverage approx: 12sqm per 1 litre per coat.
Q. I have 30m2 parquet floor to treat, will this be enough to do that?
A. We are advised that one litre will cover 12m2 so a 5 litre container of this seal should be enough to treat your parquet floor.
