.DESCRIPTION AND USES
.
.PRODUCT APPLICATION (cont.)
For best results, use Pro Finisher Universal Applicator
(Rust-Oleum Pat No.139437) which allows you to apply thin,
even coats. Other options are a Short nap roller or Pro Finisher
Lambswool Applicator. Apply the sealer to the surface in an even,
consistent coat using full, level strokes. Apply evenly and
consistently to floor in the direction of the grain at a rate of
approximately 500-600 square feet per gallon. Allow sealer to dry
30-45 minutes.
Applying Top Coat: The best method for applying oil-base or
water-base polyurethane over Universal Sealer is “Hotcoating”
(applying the finish directly over a dry un-abraded sealer). This is
the fastest and easiest method of application. The best
application tool for applying Universal Sealer is Pro Finisher
Universal Applicator, applying a thin, even coat of sealer on the
floor (avoid leaving drops or heavy spots). Hot coating has been
widely used by finishers and is the preferred method for
applying finish over Universal Sealer. In this method, the oil-base
or water-base finish is applied directly over the dried and unabraded coat of Universal Sealer. The sealer does not need to
be abraded to attain intercoat adhesion. After the 1st coat of
finish has dried, screen this finish coat as you normally do, then
apply any successive coats. This produces a very smooth base
that translates into a beautifully finished floor.
Abrading Universal Sealer: Due to the nature of de-waxed
shellac, clogging will generally occur when abrading Universal
Sealer with conventional screens, pads or pad and strips. Heat
created by the friction of screens and fine buffing pads will cause
Universal Sealer to melt. If abrading the sealer is desired, an
open weave “thick green” or “thick brown” abrasive pad is
recommended. These pads will show some build-up but will last
longer than finer pads.
Tinting - Universal Sealer may be tinted with up to 2 oz. (60 ml)
universal colorant per gallon. However, the fast dry time of this
product may produce an inconsistent appearance. For best
results stain bare wood first and then seal the surface with untinted Universal Sealer. Special Note - Always test for
compatibility and drying of sealer when used with specialty
finishes such as moisture cure or acid cure. When using sealer
with exotic or oily woods it is also recommended to test sample
area. Dust from dark woods can discolor Universal Sealer.
DRY TIME
Pro Finisher Universal Sealer is a unique wood sealer made
from 100% wax-free shellac, designed to enhance the natural
wood grain on floors. It penetrates porous wood grain and seals
both domestic and exotic woods. It is compatible with oil-based
and water-based finishes, and dries quickly to give a rich tone to
wood floor surfaces.

SURFACE PREPARATION
Previously Finished Wood Floors – To ensure proper
adhesion, surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of wax, grease,
oil, shellac, lacquer, mildew, and polishes. Remove wax with a
wax stripper, shellac with a paint stripper, and mildew with a
solution of 10% household bleach and water. Old finishes in poor
condition should be removed. If existing finished wood surface or
wood floor is in good condition and free from wax or other
contaminates, you may recoat without sanding surface to bare
wood. If sanding is needed, use 150-220 grit sandpaper to obtain
a smooth surface. Do not use steel wool as rust may develop
after the finish has been applied. Remove all sanding dust using
a vacuum or a tack cloth. Universal Sealer may be applied as a
bond coat over existing finishes, including prefinished floors
coated with aluminum oxide.
New Wood Floors – Sand with the grain using 100-120 grit
sandpaper and remove all sanding dust using a vacuum and
then tacking with a lint-free cotton cloth. If a filler or putty is used,
make sure it does not contain wax allow enough time for it to dry
thoroughly.
Stained or Painted Wood – Oil or water based stains can be
used prior to sealer application for custom coloring. Test a
sample area for product compatibility. Stain must be thoroughly
dry before applying Pro Finisher Universal Sealer.
WARNING! If you scrape, sand or remove old paint, you may
release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD
DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS SUCH AS BRAIN
DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN
SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH-approved
respirator to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a
HEPA vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to
protect yourself and your family by contacting the National Lead
Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to
www.epa.gov/lead.
Dry times are based on 70°F (21°C) and 50% relative humidity.
Dries to touch in 10 minutes and can be recoated 45 minutes.
Warmer temperatures will accelerate and colder temperatures
will prolong the dry time of this product. Do not apply if humidity
exceeds 85% or when the temperature is within 10°F of the dew
point or blushing could occur (the dried film turns white). If sealer
blushes during or after application, remove using a rag and
denatured alcohol and reapply when humidity decreases.
CLEAN-UP
APPLICATION
Do not apply in direct sunlight. Use with adequate ventilation at
all times. Apply only when air (ambient) temperature is between
60-80°F (16-27°C) and relative humidity is below 85%. Use full
strength. Do not thin. Stir thoroughly before and during use. To
prevent bubbles in the finish, DO NOT SHAKE, do not overbrush, or apply with a roller.
Wipe up drips and spills with a rag dampened in denatured
alcohol or use a solution of household ammonia and water.
Clean natural bristle brushes with denatured alcohol and
synthetic bristle brushes a solution of 1 part household ammonia
and two parts water. If product has dried on application tools,
soak tools overnight in ammonia solution or alcohol.
