The drying and curing times for Bona Water-Based Flooring Sealers can vary depending on several factors, including environmental conditions and the specific product used. However, as a general guideline, most water-based sealers tend to dry relatively quickly compared to oil-based alternatives.
Typically, Bona Water-Based Flooring Sealers may take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to dry to the touch. However, it’s crucial to note that drying time does not equate to full curing time. While the surface may feel dry after a few hours, it is recommended to allow a longer period for the sealer to cure completely.
For full curing, it is advisable to wait at least 24 hours before allowing light foot traffic. The curing process continues beyond this point, and it’s recommended to wait 3 to 5 days before placing heavy furniture or rugs on the treated surface. Always refer to the specific product’s technical data sheet or instructions provided by Bona for accurate and detailed information tailored to the particular sealer you are using.
Environmental factors such as temperature and humidity can influence drying and curing times. Warmer temperatures and lower humidity levels generally expedite the process, while cooler temperatures and higher humidity may extend the time required for drying and curing.
To ensure optimal results, it’s crucial to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines closely and take into account the specific conditions of the application environment.
