Flexfinish HT Slip Resistant Floor Finish 8002
The only slip resistant finish that is safe to use on marble & terrazzo. Non-acid, breathable. High traffic. Will not harm tile surface. Use on all types of interior resilient and hard floors including: marble, terrazzo, natural stone, ceramic tile, wood, rubber, VCT, lino and old vinyl asbestos tile.

* Gaseous membrane allows surface to breathe, which is important with hard floors such as marble, etc.

For interior resilient and hard floors. Durable, scuff, scratch, black heel mark, and UV resistant. Simple, safe, tough, highest quality, low end-use cost. The ultimate in floor care finish for durability.
  • The ultimate in high glass transitional temperature
  • Greater gloss restoration capabilities'
  • Repels impregnation of foreign particles and black heel marks.
  • Recoat time 1/3 of industry standard
  • Clarity and leveling ability allows for traffic lane touch up and blending, no need to re-coat entire floor
  • Easy to remove if necessary (with Flexstrip)
  • Use Flexclean to clean and restore gloss and Flexclean AB to disinfect
  • Use On Guard to degrease

Saves Labor Costs, Easy To Repair Footprints In Wet Finish
Dries and cures from the bottom up in 15 minutes. Rapid coating is possible. Can be walked on wet without permanently harming the integrity of the floor finish. Burnish to speed-up the curing process and improve durability. Savings of as much as 20% in chemical costs over a three year period, when used as directed. Use Flexseal to restore old or brittle resilient floors.

Dries & Cures In Minutes To Form A Tough, Flexible Finish That Is Extremely Durable
Because the Finish dries and cures from the bottom up, porosity and poor film integrity caused by the coalescent 'out-gassing' of top down drying is eliminated. Flexfinish is safer for the environment. Mitigates potential regulatory problems for end-users. Metal-free waste discarded down the drain after stripping will not interfere with the sewage treatment process. Coverage is approx. 3000 sq. ft. / gal. (2 times industry standard), based upon one coat. Five coats recommended.

Non-Powdering, Non-Yellowing (UV Resistant)
Doesn't powder or shear off when burnished. Resists pad burns and soil embedment from ultra high-speed equipment. Does not add polymer dust to building environment.

Easy To Use, Less Fatigue, Higher Productivity, Easy To Do Repairs & Blending
User-friendly, with virtually no mop drag. Use H.T. Rayon Mop to apply. Levels easily; blends into traffic lanes without color change. Burnish blend wet edge when possible. Can be coated over a stable conventional finish or sealer.

Resists Staining & Etching
Solvent and mild acid resistant. Resists alcohol, oils, medications and most food spills.

Innovative Alkali Scavenger
More uniform gloss. Better adhesion of floor finish. A slight mop drag can indicate the floor is improperly neutralized. Capable of transforming small amount of residual alkali after stripping, and when floor is improperly neutralized, into floor finish while allowing the remaining alkali to escape from the film.

Performance Advantage
Force drying, due to internal thermal accelerator. Equipment cleanup use water. High gloss / burnishable with HT blue pad. No solvent coalescent; no offensive odour in product. Non-discoloring, contains no styrene

Application Procedure
  1. If floor has been stripped, ensure floor has been neutralised and clear water rinsed properly prior to finish application procedures. If floor has been scrubbed using 'Flexclean', neutralising is not essential, however, a clear water rinse is required. Check pH of floor to ensure it is not below pH 7 (acidic).
  2. Assemble all equipment, chemicals and custodial hardware prior to beginning procedures. Read safety instructions on MSDS and chemical product labels and comply as directed.
  3. Pour Flexfinish in a wringer bucket lined with a plastic bag. Immerse clean, prebroken in, lint free, dedicated H.T. Rayon Floor Finish Mop fully in finish. Wring out bottom half of mop. (New mops should be soaked in clean water first, to remove loose fibres and residue.)
  4. Apply 5 or 6 medium coats depending upon porosity of floor, desired appearance, traffic conditions, etc.
  5. For best results, apply one full coat and burnish very well with H.T. Blue Pad to anchor Flexfinish to tile until a gloss appears. Then apply another 4 coats and burnish final coat. Use a 1000 to 2500 R.P.M. burnisher. If using as a Dry Brite finish, burnishing is not required. If using a scrub and re-coat procedure, after applying 3 coats of Flexfinish H.T., burnish the final coat. Dust mopping after burnishing is not required.
  6. Flexfinish H.T. blends in perfectly with previous coats if recommended maintenance procedures have been performed. If this is a re-coat after scrubbing (not stripping), or in an area where the coating is to be blended in, apply coats directly on the affected area(s).

OPTIONAL: You may wish to burnish the entire floor prior to the application to locate the 'hot spots' that need re-coating. For maximum durability, re-coat (2 to 3 coats) in the areas that do not 'pop' a shine after burnishing. Burnish blend the wet edges around each patch you re-coat. In the case of an alkaline spill, after three coats, burnish entire area affected. If not satisfied, re-coat until shine matches remainder of floor.

NOTE: 'Flexseal' is highly recommended for all resilient floors as it will greatly enhance the floor finish and increases its durability.
