FINISHES AND COATINGS
All Bona finishes are non-yellowing and offer a choice of sealers and top coats depending on the timber species and requirements for appearance and usage performance. For an overview of the Bona range of finishes and primers download the Bona Timber Floor Finishes Guide.
Prime Intense is a 100% polyurethane sealer water-based designed to reduce 'tannin bleed' in timber species such as Blackbutt. Tannin bleed describes a phenomenon where a blotchy, green look is seen after applying water-based coatings on timber species containing high amounts of tannin; this effect is most noticeable with Blackbutt. Intense gives a greater depth and colour compared to other water-based primers and is suitable for use on most timber species. Intense is compatible with all Bona top coats.
Bona White is a coloured water based primer for untreated wooden floors designed to give an enhanced whitewashed appearance on lighter timber species. The intensity and depth of colour can be controlled by the number of applications. Applied in a single layer it typically gives a light whitewashed appearance and on some timber species can preserve an impression of raw, untreated wood. For a more solid white feel two, or more, applications may be made. The highly forgiving formulation is designed for easy roller application.
For the best appearance combine Bona White with Traffic HD Extra Matt, Traffic Matt Traffic Natural or Bona Mega One.
