Concrete Flooring Finish

Smärtgard | ultra durable floor finish

Helps reduce maintenance without sacrificing shine

Smärtgard is an ultra durable floor finish for concrete floors, marble, terrazzo, sheet vinyl/linoleum, granite, and ceramic and quarry tile. Designed to be stain and dirt resistant, Smärtgard floors are easily cleaned by dusting and wet mopping. It delivers a continuous protection and high-gloss surface and can reduce hard floor maintenance costs as compared to other traditional floor finishes. Less maintenance means you reduce chemicals, electricity, water and floor down time. Those savings help your organization not only lower operations spending but also make environmentally preferable cleaning choices. It is so easy to install, your staff can either apply it themselves or you can contract with your local trained applicators.

general use directions

  • Prior to application, floor should be stripped of previous finishes or deep scrubbed and thoroughly cleaned to remove dirt and debris. Rinse with water until no residue remains and allow floor to dry thoroughly.
  • Apply 2-3 light, even coats of Smärtgard floor finish. Do not apply by pouring directly onto the surface; use a plastic roller pan. Apply be synthetic fiber wax applicator or lambs wool applicator.
  • Allow at least 60-90 minutes between each coat, depending upon environmental conditions. Apply no more than 4 coats within 24 hours.

Note:

  • Heavy coats or inadequate drying time between coats may result in increased stickiness and dirt retention.
  • After 24 hours, 3-4 additional coats may be applied as desired. Always allow Smärtgard to cure 36-48 hours after application before burnishing.

Note:

  • Minimum application temperature is 500F.
  • Coverage is approximately 500-1000ft2/gallon.
  • Full hardness of the finish is achieved in 3-4 days.
