Australian Standard. A moisture meter is recomme
nded  to indicate conditions.

Reference is made to the Australian Standard Code 
AS 4786.2-2005: Timber Flooring – Sanding and Finishing. 

Sand timber floor to a fine finish using accepted procedures. 
Machine sand the surface to remove old treatments and
impurities in the wood. Use a coarse sanding paper and
sand the floor to an even and smooth finish. Make a second
cut with 100−120 grit sand paper and then fine sand with
120−150 grit sand paper. This finishing will reduce the
amount of grain raise. 
Vacuum thoroughly and tack the floor with a mineral
turps dampened cloth before applying TUNG OIL SEAL
Do not forget to remove dust from skirting, windowsills,
radiators and other exposed areas.

All timber surfaces should be clean and properly prepared. 
All application tools must be clean and free of contamination. 
Apply first coat of TUNG OIL SEAL at the recommended rate
using selected application method. 
Cut in edges using a paint brush or paint pad. 
Smooth the seal in line with the timber grain and lay of the floor. 
Ensure an even coating is obtained without puddles and misses. 

Application of a sealer may raise the grain of the
timber creating a rough surface which needs to be smoothed.
Lightly sand the first coat TUNG OIL SEAL
with a worn 150 grit screen disc. Pass quickly over
the surface to avoid burnishing.
Vacuum thoroughly and tack the floor with a water-dampened cloth. 

The Second and subsequent coats of TUNG OIL SEAL will take longer
to dry, up to 8 hours. Allow floor at least 48 hours before
opening to light traffic. Do not cover the surface with
non-porous protective materials as full cure can take more
than 7 days.

Abrading between coats of TUNG OIL SEAL is not required
for adhesion unless more than 24 hours have elapsed or any
grain raise is still evident, in which case, lightly cut
the surface back with a worn 150 grit screen disc. However,
for the smoothest floor results free of impediments, lightly
abrade prior to the final finish coat with a De nibbing pad.

The floor is to be swept clean of all debris and dirt.
Ensure all contaminants are removed by thoroughly scrubbing
the entire floor surface with a solution of TIMBER PRECLEAN
following label instructions. Using a wet & dry vacuum
or mop & bucket, pick up slurry then thoroughly rinse with
clean water. If the floor has been previously treated with
wax or polish this must be removed by chemical stripping.
following label instructions. Exposure to water should be
kept to a minimum during the scrubbing or stripping processes. 

Allow the floor to dry completely. 

Cut back previously sealed floors with a 100–120 grit screen
disc to remove raised wood fibre, surface imperfections and
provide an adequate surface for resealing. 
Vacuum thoroughly and tack the floor with a mineral
turps dampened cloth. A small test area using TUNG OIL
SEAL(1m2) may be tried first to check compatibility.

Regular and correct maintenance will extend the life
of your timber floor and present it at its best.
• Attach protective pads to furniture legs. 
• Use matting at all external entries to contain and
prevent dirt and grit from entering. 
• Sweep daily with an electrostatic mop. 
• Spot mop spillages as they occur. 
• Damp mop when required. 
• Use VERSADET neutral floor cleaner following label
• D o not over wet your timber floor. 
• Do not expose your timber floor to heavy traffic until
full curing of the seal/finish is effected. 
At periodic intervals your timber floor will require
treatment by way of additional coats of timber seal/finish.
We recommend that you thoroughly inspect your floor regularly
and schedule a re-treatment prior to major restoration or full
sanding being required. This will provide a lifetime of use from
your timber floor.

ntenance in heavy wear areas is to use Peerless JAL Gemini
