Surface Preparation

Ensure surface to be varnished is clean, dry, sound and free from wax, oil or any other contamination. If wax has been used clean the surface thoroughly with white spirit prior to sanding. Bare wood should be sanded to a smooth surface, always working with the grain. Sound previously varnished surfaces should be lightly sanded to provide a key. New concrete must be at least 6 months old prior to varnishing. Concrete must be clean, dry and free from any surface laitance (a weak dusty layer on new concrete) and any other surface contaminants such as oils, grease, dirt etc. prior to applying the varnish. Not suitable for direct use on power floated concrete.

Directions for Use

Base and activator are supplied in correct proportions. First stir the base component, then add activator gradually to the base, and mix thoroughly. DO NOT MIX PART UNITS. Wait 5 minutes after mixing. Do not store mixed product (residue) in a closed can. Badly activated or incorrectly mixed materials will affect performance and may cause early failure or discolouration. When used outdoors on top of pre-painted surfaces: If the old paint is not UV-resistant, the use of Multi-surface PU Heavy-Duty Varnish is not recommended.

Application

(Brush) - Apply evenly using light strokes following the grain of the wood. For best results 3 coats are recommended on new wood/concrete (dilute 1st coat with 10% water) and 2 coats on previously varnished surfaces.

(Roller) - Use a short nap mohair roller. For best results 3 coats are recommended on new wood/concrete (dilute 1st coat with 10% water) and 2 coats on previously varnished surfaces.

Notes

  • Not suitable for use on plastic type materials, e.g. imitation wood.
  • Do not wash the varnished surface for at least 3 days after application. If water is spilled on it during this period gently wipe off with a soft dry cloth.
  • Taber abrasion: weight loss CS17 / 1000 cycles: 17 mg
  • Resist stains of: Alcohol (40%), Ammonia, Fatty acids, Coffee, Red Wine, Water, diluted acids & alkalis.

Question: 

Is the Blackfriars heavy duty floor varnish better for a shop floor, or the Rustoleum 4900?

Answer: 

These products are very similar, Blackfriar Heavy Duty Varnish comes in larger pack sizes, is available in Satin or Gloss finishes and is more suited to bare concrete or timber surfaces. Rust-Oleum 4900 Polycoat 2K comes in smaller pack sizes and is available in Matt or Gloss finishes and is able to be applied over more varieties of existing coatings.

questions Mary Stevenson on 02/06/2019
Question: 

I have just finished upcycled my kitchen. used a kitchen cupboard paint. when it was dried, it wasn't as glossy as I first thought, it was Satin Paint. Could I use this product to give a gloss finish? Would it also strengthen and protect the cupboards? Any and all advice welcome! I live in the UK

Answer: 

Yes Rust-Oleum 4900 Polycoat 2K could be used to provide a gloss finish, it will improve abrasion resistance, is easy to clean and will not yellow. Resists boiling water, alcohol, coffee, red wine, dilute acid and alkalis.

questions Sam on 02/01/2019
Question: 

In the instructions it says to dilute the first coat with 10% water... do you have to do this? Will it effect the result if you don’t? How much water would I need to use for a 2.5 l tin of varnish?

Answer: 

Diluting with 10% water is only recommended on the product data sheet for the first coat on new wood/concrete. If you needed the whole 2.5lt tin for the first coat on new wood/concrete, 10% dilution would mean you should add 250ml of clean, cold water. 

questions Stephen george on 27/07/2017
Question: Rust is coming through concrete render where the angle bead is. What can I coat it with to stop the rust coming through before I sandtex it ?
Answer: 

Zinsser Cover Stain has been used in this situation to block the rust stains however there is no guarantee how long it will hold the stains back. As soon as any trace of moisture gets into the metal beading the rusting process will start again and stains are likely to bleed through once more. It would not be possible to say how long the primer would hold the staining back.

The render surfaces must be completely dry before applying the primer.

Applying 2 coats of the Cover Stain will give a little more protection and hold back the staining for longer than 1 coat.

The Cover Stain can be overcoated with a standard masonry type coating.

You could apply Zinsser AllCoat Exterior or Zinsser Perma-White Exterior over the Cover Stain primer. These products will reduce water ingress and hopefully prevent stains from reappearing for longer.

Note that the only 100% effective way to solve the problem would be to remove the affected angle beading and replace with new stainless steel or plastic beading.
