Diamond Glaze Application

APPLYING DIAMOND GLAZE

ON BARE NEW WOOD FLOORS…
Rub down the thoroughly cleaned surface with grit 120 abrasive, vacuum and leave to settle overnight.
Tack the surface with a damp cloth and allow to dry. Prime the surface with one coat of Diamond Glaze.
Leave overnight to dry then lightly sand with the grain using grit 120 abrasive and remove dust before finishing.

ON FLOORS PREVIOUSLY TREATED WITH DIAMOND GLAZE…
Test a small clean area first, sand with grit 120 abrasive and dust off. Apply a test patch of Diamond
Glaze – if the glaze leaves uncoated spots, the surface is contaminated and needs to be stripped.
If the film formed is unblemished, leave for 24 hours then test for adhesion by scraping with a coin.
If the surface is sound, continue with preparation and priming as described above.

ON PREVIOUSLY WAXED, OILED OR POLISHED FLOORS…
After cleaning or stripping to a depth of 2/3mm on a test area, place a drop of water on the bare
wood – if it forms a bead, wax is still present and Diamond Glaze should not be used. If the water
disperses, carry out the application/adhesion tests above before proceeding with cleaning or
stripping and priming.

ON UNKNOWN FINISHES AND POOR CONDITION FLOORS…
Clean with a preparatory floor cleaner then white spirit. Perform the adhesion, application and
water bead tests as above.
