New Wood: Sand smooth using fine sandpaper, vacuum sanding dust. Wipe using a tack-cloth to remove any remnants of dust prior to application. Do not use steel wool. If open-grained woods are to be filled, use a filler that does not contain stearates or waxes such as ZAR Wood Patch or ZAR Trowelable Wood Patch.
Old Clear Finishes in Good Condition : Remove grease, dirt, and wax. Sand lightly in the direction of the grain to remove any gloss. Do not use steel wool. Vacuum all sanding dust. Wipe using a tack-cloth to remove any remnants of dust prior to application. If the old finish contains wax or stearates, regardless of condition, remove completely. Test Aqua ZAR in an inconspicuous area for compatibility.
Old Clear Finishes in Poor Condition, Lacquer or Shellac: Remove completely. Do not use steel wool. Sand and vacuum all sanding dust. Wipe using a tack-cloth to remove any remnants of dust prior to application.
If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE,ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH- approved respirator to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting the National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead.
Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 60°F and 90°F and the relative humidity is less than 60%. Stirring not required for Gloss. For Satin, Semi-Gloss and Antique Flat stir thoroughly before and during application. Do not shake! Use a clean synthetic fiber or foam brush, lamb’s wool applicator or pad. Do not apply with a roller! To ensure satisfactory results always test Aqua ZAR in an inconspicuous area before completing entire job. Apply thin coats at a rate of 400-500 sq.ft per gallon in the direction of the grain. Too thick of a coat may appear milky when dry. Do not over brush or trap air bubbles in the finish.
Floor Application : Prepare surface as described under “Prepare Wood Surface Before Finishing”. If floor is to be stained follow manufacturer’s directions. Areas with poor ventilation such as closed rooms, corners and hallways may take longer to dry. Apply AQUA ZAR using a brush, synthetic applicator or pad. A minimum of three coats is required. Allow floors to dry 24 hours before subjecting to light foot traffic; three to five days before moderate (normal) traffic or moving furniture. One week is required before maximum hardness is achieved. Do not cover floors with rugs before one week has elapsed. If floor should become marred or scratched, sand lightly using fine sandpaper, vacuum all sanding dust, wipe with a cloth dampened with water and apply another coat.
