Diamond Glaze Gloss from Dulux is a water-based maximum durability interior clear wood varnish. It is a simple one pack system and is ideal for use on wooden floors and other high wear interior wood surfaces. It is up to ten times tougher than conventional varnish and is resistant to common chemicals, alcohol and water.
To get the best results, ensure surfaces to be varnished are sound, clean and dry. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead. General: All traces of grease, wax and polish must be completely removed. See Diamond Glaze Varnish from Dulux Trade leaflets for further information. Diamond Glaze Varnish is not suitable for use on laminated floors. New or bare wood: Sand the surface in the direction of the grain to remove any imperfections etc. and remove residues with a damp lint free cloth. Seal all new or bare wood by applying one coat of Clear Gloss Diamond Glaze, to help reduce variations in absorbency which can lead to differences in colour and sheen, particularly when working with coloured topcoats of Diamond Glaze. Coated surfaces in good condition: Sand back to provide a good surface key and to give a uniform appearance. Do not use wood dyes or stains over previous coatings. Coated surfaces in poor condition: Where the existing coating is defective it must be completely removed and the surface prepared as described for new or bare wood above. Making Good: Make good where necessary using a suitable tinted stopper. Floor Sanding: To achieve an even appearance, prepare the floor by using an industrial drum sander and edge sander (available from a local hire shop). Always sand in the direction of the grain. A belt sander or orbital sander can be used for smaller areas. Remove all dust from floor and surrounding areas using suitable vacuum equipment.
STIR THOROUGHLY BEFORE USE, taking care not to use a whipping motion, which will introduce air and cause foaming when applied. Apply 2 or 3 coats of Diamond Glaze Varnish from Dulux Trade using either a brush or short pile mohair roller. Apply evenly and consistently, taking care to keep the 'wet edge' alive and finish off along the grain. Apply a small test area first to check adhesion and appearance. When recoating allow at least 2 hours between coats. Rub down lightly along the grain between coats using a fine grade adhesive paper. Before using coloured Diamond Glaze Varnish from Dulux Trade on base wood, pre-seal with a coat of Diamond Glaze Varnish from Dulux Trade Clear Gloss to minimise colour absorption differences. Apply 1-2 coats of coloured Diamond Glaze Varnish from Dulux Trade to achieve the desired depth of colour. For further protection, without deepening the colour, a finishing coat of Diamond Glaze Varnish from Dulux Trade in Clear Gloss or Satin may be applied.
After use, remove as much product as possible from equipment before cleaning with water.
Do not use or store in extremes of temperature and protect from frost. To prevent spillage, please store and transport upright.
