Total by Teknos is suitable for priming parquet and wooden floors using steel trowel as application method. To be used in combination with Teknos parquet lacquers.
Sand the wooden surface properly, finish with sandpaper n:o 100 or finer. Fill the gaps with GAP parquet putty during the intersanding process. After the final sanding, apply a coat of Total with a stainless steel trowel. Ensure that the lacquer has dried and, if needed, intersand between coats with, for example, abrasive net or sandpaper grit 120. Repeat steel trowel application twice. After priming, finish with Teknos parquet lacquer. Water-based primers may cause slight swelling of the wooden surface. If an absolutely smooth surface is desired, sand the surface lightly after the first steel trowel application. Ensure that the primer has fully dried before applying the top lacquer.
The surface to be varnished has to be dry. The moisture content of the wood should be 7 ±2 % by weight. The temperature of the air, the surface and the lacquer shall be above +18 – 24°C and the relative humidity of the air 40 – 60% during the time of application and drying.
