          B.If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
 
          C.Building climate control system shall be functioning with a temperature of 65 to 80 degrees F (18.3 to 26.7 degrees C) and maximum relative humidity of 70 percent for 72 hours before flooring is installed, during installation, and for 72 hours after installation. Acclimate flooring according to manufacturer's instructions.
          1.Acclimate Bona R540 Moisture Barrier Sealer and Bona R851 or R859 Adhesive to the room temperature of installation; usually overnight.
 
          3.2PREPARATION
 
          A.Protection: Protect adjacent finish surface to prevent damage during sanding and finish system application.
 
          B.Substrate: Must be clean, smooth, dry, free of loose material and structurally sound, with the surface slightly textured for best adhesion (similar to a light broom finished concrete).
          1.Remove adhesive residue, paint, concrete curing compounds or other contaminants that may affect adhesive bond. Abrasive blasting, shot blasting or scarifying may be necessary to completely remove some of these residues.
          2.Surface cracks, grooves, depressions, control joints or other non-moving joints, and other irregularities must be filled or smoothed with a Portland Cement-based patching and/or leveling compound.
          3.Levelness: To 3/16 inch (5 mm) in a 10 ft (3048 mm) span. If the concrete slab is to be leveled, primer/sealer shall be applied to the slab prior to application of the leveling compound.
          4.Slab Temperature: 55 to 95 degree F (12.8 to 35 degrees C).
 
          C.Other suitable substrates include wood and radiant heat flooring (refer to manufacturer's recommended installation instructions).

          2.Apply Bona Craft Oil 2K and allow to dry per manufacturer's instructions and this specification.
          3.Vacuum and tack the floor with a dry Bona Microfiber Tacking Pad.
          4.Apply 1 to 2 coats of Bona Traffic HD, Bona Traffic or Bona Traffic Naturale per label instructions.
          5.After Fully Cured:
          a.Deep clean floor using PowerScrubber and Bona Deep Clean Solution.
          b.Allow adequate time for surface to dry completely.
          c.Apply the same color Craft Oil 2K to the floor per the directions and allow to dry completely (8 hours for Neutral and 12 hours for all other colors).
          d.Vacuum and tack the floor with a dry Bona Microfiber tacking pad.

          3.13PROTECTION
 
          A.After application, protect floor finish from damage during subsequent work.
 
          B.Do not allow foot traffic until floor is sufficiently dried and cured.
 
          3.14FLOOR CARE
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Applies to Bona Recoat System. Delete if not required.
 
          A.Recoat System:
          1.Before using, read manufacturer's directions and material safety data sheets.
          2.Protect Surrounding Areas: Use blue tape and/or plastic sheeting or towels to prevent possible staining from accidental contact with Bona Remover.
          a.Spill Event: Immediately wipe up affected area using a clean towel and water.
          3.Bona Remover: Shake 15 to 20 seconds or until all settled product is thoroughly mixed. Pour a 4 inch (102 mm) wide line of remover along the starting wall.
          a.Saturate the Bona Roller with product from the pour line. Set roller down at back side of puddle and pull roller towards you approximately 4 to 5 ft (1219 to 1524 mm). Push back in the same path beyond your original start point.
          b.Recommended Coverage Rate: 400 to 500 sq ft per gal (9.81 to 12.27 sq m per L). Do not spread too thin.
          c.Do not cover more floor than you will be able to abrade and rinse in 20 to 30 minutes; approximately 200 sq ft (18.58 sq m).
          4.Surface Abrasion: Using a 175 rpm rotary buffer, with Bona Recoat Abrasive drive plate, abrade the section of floor coated with Bona Remover. Abrade with grain up and back over the same path. Start the next pass by overlapping the previous pass by 50 percent.
          a.Hand-abrade corners and sections missed by buffer with 120 grit paper.
          b.Replace drive plate every 5000 to 7000 sq ft (464.5 to 650.3 sq m) of use.
          5.Using the Bona Recoat System Squeegee, move Bona Remover material out from the wall and any areas the Bona PowerScrubber will not reach.
          6.Bona Rinse: Mix at a 4:1 ratio, 4 parts water to one part Bona Rinse. Using Bona PowerScrubber filled with Bona Rinse, remove and clean Bona Remover from floor.
          a.When running the Bona PowerScrubber move the machine up and back in the same path and overlap subsequent passes by 20 percent.
          b.Typically, you will only need to dispense Bona Rinse solution on the forward pass. If Bona Remover has dried on the floor, it may be necessary to dispense Bona Rinse solution on both the forward and backward pass.
          c.Use Bona PowerScrubber red recoat brushes on the Bona PowerScrubber instead of white brushes that come standard.
          1)The red brushes are needed to help with abrasion and scrubbing of the floor. They also raise the height of the Bona PowerScrubber, allowing the machine to more effectively vacuum up the thick slurry created during the process.
          7.Repeat prior steps 1 through 6 until entire floor has been treated.
          a.To guarantee all contaminates have been removed and meet the Bona Recoat System Warranty, it is required that entire floor be prepared a second time following all prior steps. During second pass it is not necessary to hand abrade.
          8.Wipe Down Perimeter: Using a clean terry towel or microfiber cloth and warm water, wipe down the perimeter of the floor, approximately 1 inch (25 mm) out from the wall where the Bona PowerScrubber could not reach. It may also be necessary to wipe down all the baseboards and any other areas Bona Remover has come in contact with.
          9.Relocate buffer, Bona recoat abrasive drive plate, applicators and all other equipment besides the Bona PowerScrubber from the floor. Thoroughly clean with water the Bona PowerScrubber brushes, squeegees, power cord and your shoes/work boots of any remaining Bona Remover. Perform a final "Rinse" step on the entire floor using the Bona PowerScrubber and the Bona Rinse. This step will help ensure the floor is clean of any Bona Remover due to footprints or missed areas during the initial rinse steps.
          10.Wet tack the entire floor with water. Prior to finish application feel floor with hand, if floor feels gritty or rough in areas, you have not removed all the Bona Remover.
          11.Repeat steps, subparagraphs 9 and 10.
          12.If the floor has heavy traffic areas or lots of scratches that need to be blended or repaired, wait until floor has been cleaned of contaminates before abrading with a screen or repairing.
          a.If you do abrade with a screen, be sure to vacuum and tack the floor thoroughly to remove any dust created during the sanding/repair process before applying a coat of Bona Traffic or Bona Traffic HD.
          13.Allow floor to dry and following label instructions apply one coat of Bona Traffic or Bona Traffic HD.
          a.If a second coat of Bona Traffic is needed, intercoat abrasion is not required.
          b.If intercoat abrasion is needed, abrade with a 320-grit maroon pad only.
          c.The Bona Recoat process temporarily weakens the finish system and aggressive abrasion could cause damage to total floor system.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Applies to Pro Series cleaners. Delete if not required.
 
          B.Cleaning: Hardwood, natural oil wood floors, and stone floors.
          1.Before using, read all directions and material safety data sheet
          2.For Regular Maintenance of Finished Floors:
          a.Vacuum, sweep or dust mop.
          b.Mist.
          c.Clean. Rinse cleaning pad often to avoid streaking
