French Polish by Smith and Rodger

Transeal Application Information

Part of Smith & Rodger's floor coating range, Transeal is an ethanol based prime coating designed as a barrier seal on all types of wood.

Information Panel
  • Prevents the possible rejection of floor lacquers by sealing in not only waxes but any
    dyestuffs that may bleed from the timber
  • Minimises grain raising caused by waterbased lacquers
Uses Primarily used in the sealing of wooden floors prior to overcoating with a protective lacquer, the product is also suitable for most interior woodwork including furniture, doors, facings, skirting etc.
Direction for Use
  • Ensure room conditions are warm dry and well ventilated. Do not apply if the
    temperature is below 20 °C and/or the relative humidity is above 65%.
  • Ensure the wood is clean, dry, sanded smooth and dust free.
  • Apply using a brush, spray or the preferred lambswool applicator. Apply one coat and then overcoat with your desired protective lacquer.
  • Please ensure that the coat of Transeal is not too thick otherwise this may prevent the product fully curing. It is also recommended that protective gloves are used.
Drying Times Assuming good application and curing conditions:
Touch Dry - 10-15 mins. Recoat Time - 1 hour
Follow the respective instruction sheets for protective lacquers to determine full cure.
Avoid heavy use for at least 72 hours after the final coat. Do not put rugs on the floor or subject the floor to any wet cleaning or wax polish maintenance for at least 8-10 days.
Note - Heavy coats should not be applied as this will adversely affect the drying and curing time, as will recoating too soon or covering the floor with polythene or other sheeting.
Coverage Depending on the porosity of the wood and film weight approximately 12 square metres per litre.
Staining Use AQUASTAIN, available in 16 standard shades - please contact us for the specific data sheet.
Shelf Life Up to one year if stored tightly sealed in the original container in warm dry conditions. Store away from direct heat. Protect from frost.
