8) Make sure the previous coat has completely dried before applying the next coat. Drying time varies considerably with temperature and moisture levels.

9) Check as follows: Must be dry. Press your thumb onto the floor. If soft, do not re-coat. Press your hand for 5 minutes on the floor. If tacky, do not re-coat.

10 The drying time of oil based products is prolonged by: a. High humidity and/or low temperature during application and drying time. b. Absorption of natural terpenes, oils, waxes or resins from the substrate, especially in exotic and eucalyptus timbers. c. Bad ventilation and darkness. d. Thick coats. 30/05/2011
