Charlotte Floor Refinishing: Bona Mega or Bona Traffic: Water Based Finish

Wood Floor Refinishing in Charlotte, NC         

Bona Traffic is a 2-component waterbased wood floor finish. Mixing Traffic part A with part B begins the hardening process of the finish.   Once Bona Traffic Part A is mixed with Traffic Part B there is a working time of about 2-3 hours.  Bona Traffic remains clear for the life of the floor meaning it will not amber or turn yellow with time.

There is also Bona Traffic Anti Slip which only comes in satin sheen.  Bona Anti-Slip is an excellent waterbased floor finish with superior durability for use on stairs, or special flooring applications where extra surface traction is desired.

Bona Traffic is a “topcoat” finish.  A sealer must be applied to the floor before applying Traffic.  Bona offers three choices of water-based sealers as follows: (1) Bonaseal (this product stays clear with no ambering tones),  (2) Bona DTS (this sealer adds a moderate amount of ambering tones to the wood, similar to oil based polyurethanes), (3) Bona Amberseal (this sealer adds the most amber tones of all Bona sealers and looks very much like oil based polyurethane in color).  For Stained Floors: When applying stain to the hardwood floor there is generally no need to apply a sealer.  Bona Traffic waterbased finish can be applied directly over Bona oil-based stains once the stain has completely dried.

Bona Mega is a single component waterbased floor finish. Bona Mega is a very durable residential or commercial finish and comes in the following sheen’s: Gloss, Semi-gloss, and Satin. Bona Mega can be applied with a waterbased sealer or directly over Bona floor stain.  Mega may add a slight amount of richer amber tones to the floor like an oil based floor finish.

Do you want even more durability from Bona Mega?  Bona Mega Booster  creates another level of toughness to an already great Mega waterbased floor finish.  Add one bottle of Mega Booster per gallon of Bona Mega and you get added long-term durability.  This is a great solution for busy living areas which receive extra foot traffic and daily wear.  Mega Booster does not change the color or sheen of the Bona Mega finish.

The Hardwood Giant Co. uses Bona oil & water based finishing solutions as well as the Bona Atomic Dust Containment system for our hardwood floor refinishing.
