Directions – Sport Seal – 00226SF

General Directions**


  1. Sand floor using appropriate NWFA/MFMA procedures. All old finish or wax should be removed.
  2. Finish sanding with a new 120-grit screen. Do not use steel wool.
  3. Vacuum all dust and tack with clean, water dampened towels or microfiber pads that have been tightly wrung out. Tack until all dust has been removed.
  4. Allow floor to dry until there is no sign of moisture.

(use on any new or newly sanded floors)

  1. Check moisture content of wood. It should be 10% or less before sealing.
  2. Apply seal with a weighted T-bar.
  3. Allow first coat to dry 1 hour (longer dry times will be necessary under high humidity). Recheck floor with moisture meter. If moisture reading is higher than starting point, allow more dry time.
  4. Buff floor smooth with a green or maroon pad. DO NOT BUFF WITH SAND SCREENS.
  5. Tack until all dust has been removed with clean, water-dampened towels or microfiber pads that are tightly wrung out.
  6. Apply second coat of seal using a weighted T-bar. Allow 12 or more hours of cure time.
  7. Repeat steps 4 – 5 from above.
  8. If desired, paint game lines using a high quality, 100% acrylic latex paint. If not painting, proceed to step 10 below.
  9. Allow game lines 24 hours of cure time. Then buff the lines with a green or maroon pad and tack the entire floor as directed in step 5 above.
  10. Apply 3 coats of Sport Kote (00222SF) or Satin Sport Kote (00228SF). See product label for complete details.

Note: If any grain raising is noticed between coats of Sport Kote (00222SF), buff the floor smooth with a green or maroon pad and tack.
