Trends in Blends 

A big advantage versus a straight stain application which can only happen on raw wood, the hybrid paint/finish process can be administered on a full sand and re-finish or even during a recoat, which makes this so much more valuable to any sport floor professional. Creating custom looks and colors with these two processes is a great way to set your Bona Sport system offering apart from the competition!

 

Bona Glaze - Bona DTS Sport Seal and Bona SuperSport Paint hybrid mix

  • Provides a stained appearance without penetrating into the wood. 
  • Can be achieved on a sealed or fully cured (abraded) floor, prior to top coats of clear finish.
  • Mix ratios can vary depending on the desired translucency.

Best Practices:

  • Mix Ratios
    • 16oz (2 cups) paint per gallon of finish if using white paint
    •  8oz (1 cup) paint per gallon of finish for all other paint colors
  • Apply with T-bar.  Keep application runs straight and follow immediately with a “dry” T-bar to remove excess mixture and prevent lap marks
  • Less is more when doing this process. Add multiple coats to achieve a darker color
  • Use a stencil mask to separate colors and create clean lines.  As one color over another color will create a different color, be careful not to overlap at all (no bleed line on stencil masks)
  • Dry time: 3-4 hours if coating with waterborne; 10-12 hours if coating with oil-modified poly. Abrade with Conditioning Pad and two Diamond 240 grit discs before adding regular painted gamelines
    • Create a safety perimeter with stencil masking material to pull the excess material onto at the end of each run. Do not attempt to turn and feather out like you would on a regular finish application

 

 

  

 

 

 

Bona Courtlines and Dri Fast Stain Mixture

  • Achieve a more vibrant consistent look
  • Only for unfinished/bare wood

Best Practices:

  • Mix Ratios
    • 2 parts stain to 1 part paint
  • Water popping is a must- ensure excess water is removed and thoroughly dry before applying stain/paint mixture. Area will be vulnerable to scuffs/marks after water popped.
  • Prefer to use  carpet pad/non-abrasive white pad under buffer to ensure consistent application of stain
  • Add more stain if needed to keep consistent
  • Use a second pad to buff off excess stain

Tech Tips & Tricks

To produce this much sought after look, mix Bona SuperSport Paint – Black with Bona DTS waterborne sealer in approximately a 3:2 ratio (or 60% paint and 40% sealer if that’s easier to picture). Shake well and apply with a Bona Roller in the regular manner. Have a bare spot, blotchy look or thin areas? Because this is a hybrid system utilizing waterborne sealer, just let the 1st coat dry for 2-3 hours before applying a second coat to even everything out; then protect with 1-2 coats of Bona waterborne finish. Experiment with other SuperSport Paint colors and exponentially expand your color style offering!
