Pro Shield Water Based Flooring Topcoat - our most durable floor finish, is a two part urethane-acrylic that requires our AZ catalyst.
GENERAL FINISHES PRO SHIELD is a two component urethane for hardwood floors designed to be applied over Pro Floor Stains or Pro Sealer.
IMPORTANT: Record moisture meter readings in several places before applying stain or sealer on the raw floor. These readings will provide a benchmark at later stages to determine when the floor is dry enough to apply another coat.
OVER GENERAL FINISHES RTM FLOOR STAINS: Allow stains to dry 2 to 3 hours @ 70Â° / 70% humidity or until the moisture meter readings return to their original numbers.
OVER GENERAL FINISHES PRO SEALER: Allow Pro Sealer to dry for 2 to 3 hours or until the moisture meter readings return to their original numbers. Then buff with Maroon Pad and 240 grit sandpaper strips, a 3M Hi Pro Pad or equivalent. Vacuum all dust from floor. Tack rag with water dampened towels.
OVER OIL BASE STAINS: Allow oil based stains to dry 24 to 48 hours or twice as long as the manufacture recommends. Always test for adhesion.
CATALYST MIXING RATIOS: Mix one gallon of Pro Shield (Part A) with one 4 oz. bottle of Catalyst (Part B). For smaller quantities, mix 1 fl. oz. Catalyst to 1 quart Pro Shield.
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: Rock or stir well for 30 seconds Pro Shield (A) prior to adding Catalyst (B). Add Catalyst and shake or stir well for five minutes. Allow mixture to stand for at least 15 minutes before using to allow defoaming.
APPLICATION: Apply with T-Bar and mohair cover at a rate of 500-600 sq. ft. per gallon. Two coats are recommended. If applying the second coat within six hours, buffing is not required. If applying after six hours, buff with maroon pad and 220 strips. Vacuum off all dust and apply second coat.
APPLICATION TIPS: If conditions are dry and warm, decrease or restrict the amount of air flow. Also increase the application rate and block direct sunlight when possible by closing shades or blinds.
RE-COATING OF EXISTING FLOORS: Clean all wax, grease, and oils; then buff finish with maroon pad and 220 strips. Vacuum all dust and apply 1 or 2 coats of Pro Shield. If re-coating a factory finished floor, test for adhesion before proceeding.
DRY TIMES: 2 to 3 hours under ideal conditions (70Â° / 70% humidity). The best method for judging dryness accurately is to use moisture meter readings.
CURE TIME: Floor may be used socks only in six hours, furniture three days, and rugs ten days. Be careful during the first ten days as the finish is more susceptible to scratching and scuff marks. Place heavy furniture on carpet pads.
STORAGE: Keep from freezing.
POT LIFE: Six hours at 70-75Â°.
SHELF LIFE: 1 year in unopened container.
VOC: Less than 150 grams per liter w/ Catalyst.
