New Videos posted at face book about trowelling filler and trowelling finish



Veteran flooring contractor Ken Moersch completed work on a floor using a competitor's finish only to find that the product failed to perform, leaving the surface coarse and grainy. So, after buffing down the previous finish, Ken turned to Glitsa Max.   Because I work alone, I need a more forgiving finish that will help me achieve superior results even with difficult layouts. Glitsa Max rolled on really nicely with great coverage and saved the job. I don't ever stress about a coat anymore. This new generation water borne commercial finish goes on thicker letting me work faster without throwing drips everywhere, and with the longer open bucket time, the user-friendliness of it is really nice. Dip the roller in the bucket and Glitsa Max just clings to the to the nap. It's a dream to apply and is a lot thicker than the competitors floor finishes I love it. As far as I'm concerned, it's a lot better than anything else out there." Ken Moersch AHF All hardwood floor ltd. Vancouver BC. '

 
When using a waterborne finish over a solvent sealer, discoloration or blotchiness can occur over time if the wood surface is not thoroughly sealed in preparation for a

waterborne coating. Highly photosensitive woods are especially prone to this phenomenon. To prevent or reduce this when using the Glitsa hybrid system, the following

procedures are recommended:

 

For most wood species: For best results, apply two coats Glitsa Sealer at maximum coverage rates to fully seal the wood surface in preparation for a waterborne topcoat.

Minimize drips or heavy spots, and carefully feather out any stops marks.

 

For photosensitive wood species (Brazilian Cherry, Fir, Cherry, Mesquite, etc.): Best results are obtained using either the complete Swedish system (Bacca, Glitsa Sealer

or Satin Sealer and Gold Seal or Lite Scent) or the complete Glitsa waterborne system (Tru Seal and Glitsa Max or Glitsa SC; Infinity II).

Always take into consideration that jobsite  conditions (i.e., low temperatures, high humidity, etc.) may extend dry times.
