Sealing the floor using proper varnishes or oils is crucial.

Finally, these products are environmentally friendly, so that’s our way of protecting Nature and contributing to a cleaner, better world for all of us.

Bona Mega Varnish
Bona MegaBona Mega Varnish is a one-component, water-borne, 100% polyurethane finish for the surface treatment of timber floors in commercial and domestic areas subject to heavy wear. As cross-linking is achieved using oxygen in the air, Mega has the performance of a two-component finish without requiring a separate catalyst. It has all the advantages of a water-borne system, but still gives a deep, rich colouration similar to a solvent based finish.
Bona Mega comes in matt, satin and gloss finishes.
Bona Traffic Varnish
Bona Traffic Varnish is a two-component, water-borne, 100% polyurethane finish for the surface treatment of timber floors in commercial premises or wherever a high resistance to wear is required. It is also suitable for over-coating compatible factory pre-finished timber and cork floors. Traffic provides a clear, natural appearance, giving almost invisible protection when the IP (Matt) version is used. However, unlike oil, it offers a simple level of maintenance. Traffic is Bona’s most hard-wearing lacquer. Available in IP (Matt) or Silk-matt versions. Where there is a risk of side-bonding, Bona Prime Classic is recommended for the initial coat on bare wood.

Bona R850 Wood Floor Adhesive
Lobadur WS Viva Varnish R850 is an elastic single component silane-based adhesive for parquet floors fitting. The hardened adhesive is similar to conventional adhesives – able to withhold thrust during expansion, while the resistance sgainst shrinkage is very low. Tensions to the sub floor are therefore reduced. The use of a primer is in general not necessary. The adhesive hardens by a chemical reaction with moisture.
Bona Moisture Barier R580
Unique, single coat, fast setting, saline-based moisture barrier. Water and solvent-free, Bona R580 is designed to treat damp sub floors prior to the installation of wood flooring using Bona saline-based adhesives. Bona R580 can be used as a two-component system with water to gain an even shorter setting time.
Bona R580 is also compatible with Bona H650 levelling compound. Quartz sand must be broadcast into wet Bona R580 before the application of the levelling compound.
Bona R580 is fully compatible with Bona adhesives R850, R845 and R860 which can be applied directly to the moisture barrier.
Lobadur Wood Floor Resin Filler
Lobadur Resin Wood Floor Filler is a quality compound which is mixed with the dust collected during the finer floor sanding stages of the restoration process. The wood dust is mixed with the filler and applied into the gaps, cracks and scratches of the floor. The wood filler hardens quickly becoming a solid matter, which will require re-sanding of the floors again. In most cases the procedure has to repeated two or three times. An important step in wood floor gap filling, especially when working with pine floor boards is fixing the floors prior to the gap filling.
Please note, most companies will not guarantee the durability of the gap filling, as sometime the solidness of the floor depends on the sub-floor base.
