Pure silk brush / Pad applicator

Surface preparation

Sand the surface completely in the direction of the wood fibers with #80 coarse paper and then sand the surface with #120 fine paper until a smooth, even finish is obtained. All dirt and foreign matter must be removed with a vacuum cleaner, followed by a final cleaning with a pad moistened with solvent to remove all traces of dust. It is recommended to use Thiroco Sealer100, Sealer101 or Sealer102 as primer.

Application

At the time of application, the temperature of the air and substrate should be between 15°C and 35°C. Use in well-ventilated areas without drafts during application and during drying. It is important to thoroughly mix the product before and during the application. Pour a small amount of varnish directly on the floor or into a paint tray and apply evenly using a pure silk brush or applicator pad. Allow a minimum of drying time between each layer depending on the ambient conditions. Between each coat, lightly sand the surface with #180 or #220 fine paper in the grain direction of the wood. Remove dust from sanding. For better durability, it is recommended to apply two coats of Thiroclair if a sealer has been used as a primer or three coats of varnish if no sealer has been used.

Drying

The Thiroclair reacts to moisture. Temperature and relative humidity are critical factors for proper drying of the product. Drying is accelerated at high temperature and humidity and vice versa. Under normal conditions (around 25°C and 50% RH), it is possible to walk on the floor after 24-30 hours. Wait 48 hours before replacing the furniture. Since the final properties of the coating are obtained after 7 days, do not lay carpets or clean the floor until the product has completely matured. The drying time depends on the application method, the temperature and the porosity of the surfaces.
