Directions – Satin Sport Kote – 00228SF

General Directions**

  1. PREPARE FLOOR: NOTE: This finish is not designed for application to bare wood floors. Use only on previously sealed surfaces. Use only after proper training.
    SCRUB AND RECOAT: Dust mop floor and remove all chewing gum and labels. Prepare floor with Sport Prep (00425SF), following label directions.
    NOTE: Test previously coated floor in an inconspicuous area before recoating to determine compatibility with existing finish. Apply no more than 2 coats in 24 hours and a maximum of 3 coats in 48 hours. See finish application instructions below.
  2. APPLY FINISH: Stir gently before using. Apply at a rate of 800-1000 square feet per gallon. Use a weighted T-bar with a clean, synthetic pad. Apply thin, even coats with the grain of the wood while walking at a slow, even pace. Walking too fast may produce excessive bubbling in the finish. Allow a dry time of at least 1 hour between coats. Humid conditions require longer dry time. After the first coat has dried, apply a second coat. It may be necessary to screen the first coat if grain raising has occurred or it has dried longer than 4 hours. If so, screen the floor with a previously used 120 grit screen or maroon pad. Always vacuum and tack thoroughly after screening.
    NOTE: Check expiration date. Contact Essential for batch re-certification if expiration date is exceeded. Do not pour unused finish back into original container.
  3. MAINTAIN DAILY: Dust mop at least daily, or more as required, to keep floor dust and dirt free. Damp mop spills, salt residue, etc. with Sport Clean (01143SF) and a thoroughly wrung mop.
  4. MAINTAIN WEEKLY: If soil conditions are heavy, auto-scrub weekly with red pads and a 2 ounce per gallon dilution of Sport Clean (01143SF). Refer to the Wood Floor Care Wall Chart or Manual for further details.
    CAUTION: Do not use cleaning compounds other than Essential’s Sport Clean (01143SF) as they will reduce product performance and longevity.
  5. RESTORATION: Dust mop floor. Follow restoration directions for Sport Prep (00425SF).
