30-40%

Drying time:

2-3 hours at 68°F

Recommendation:

If drying times are not followed, this can result in poor adhesion and reduced resistance. For each layer of Arctic Sealer, drying times will be increased. High temperature and low air humidity will reduce drying times. Low temperature and high air humidity will extend drying times.

Arctic Sealer is a water-based wood sealer that is ideal for areas where a light look is required. The Arctic Sealer seals the wood and minimizes the tannic acid penetration and side-bonding. It is suitable for untreated and sanded surfaces of light woods. Arctic Sealer works as a powerful basic floor finish before treatment with other water-based WOCA floor finish.

Instructions
Products in use
It is important that both wood and product have a temperature of min. 59°F (preferably around 68°F) and air humidity of approximately 40-60 %. Make sure that the room is well-ventilated for optimal evaporation and drying time. Untreated floors must be free of dirt, grease, wax and dust. Floors that have been finished previously must be sanded down to clean wood before the sealer is applied. Vacuum thoroughly and tack the floor afterwards if necessary, using a tightly-wrung water-soaked cloth. Shake the Arctic Sealer thoroughly before use.

Always remember to test on a less visible spot to check the compatibility of the surface with the product.

  1. Apply the primer undiluted with brush or roller, following the wood along its length, and allow the surface to dry. Please note: For a more intensive light appearance, apply another coat of primer. Sanding must be done after the first coat with GRIT 180-220 sandpaper (a treatment with a white-pigmented material generally requires more even sanding to prevent the pigments from sticking in the sanding grooves).
  2. When the wanted appearance has been achieved, apply 1-2 topcoats with one of the WOCA floor lacquers. Always apply a minimum of three coats (primer and lacquer) for ideal protection.
Only 2 coats of Arctic Sealer and/or floor finish can be applied each day.It is extremely difficult to apply Arctic Sealer to diagonally-aligned wood (herringbone parquet etc.) without visible overlap, so we advise extra caution. Absorption of tannic acid is not considered as a valid cause for complaint.
