Industrial Floor Wax - Medium-Gloss Finish

TI Floor Shine Polish is an economical, buffable coating for previously sealed surfaces.

  • This easy-to-use acrylic/wax hybrid will provide durable protection for the underlying sealer
  • Fast-drying
  • Easy build
  • Water cleanup
  • Safe to use
  • SLIP RESISTANCE: Floor Shine Polish adds slip resistance!  It meets or exceeds CSPA and UL slip resistance standards when tested in accordance with ASTM D 2047, and when properly maintained
  • COVERAGE:  One gallon coverage averages 300-400 sq ft.
    • If applied a little thicker, 150-200 sq. ft. per gallon. 
    • If applied evenly with a good microfiber applicator pad, up to 600 sq. ft.
    • Beware claims from sources that say "up to 3,000 sq. ft." of coverage from a floor wax!  A gallon of water can only spread so far leaving a film...  Using a light spray and microfiber applicator, it can be stretched dramatically but its effectiveness wanes a lot.  3000 sq ft is 0.16mil final film... That is .00016 of an inch!  It is reasonable that you could apply this (or any) wax and get 1000 sq ft per gallon, which would be about 0.5 mil. A second coat of wax and you would have a full mil thickness of wax- which is still ULTRA THIN and NOT much protection from a film standpoint.  The purpose of a wax is to protect the floor sealer, which is pointless if you put it on so thin it will be gone a week later!
  • What is Floor Wax? Floor wax is a sacrificial coating to protect a coating or flooring system from scratching or damaging a surface.
  • Floor wax can be burnished or polished to achieve a high-gloss shiny appearance.
  • In areas where your finished floor is going to see lots of foot traffic with a nonslip coating, floor wax is a sacrificial wax coating is often necessary to ensure the floor’s design is not permanently damaged by abrasive wear and tear. Wax for concrete floors provides an excellent protective, or surface wear barrier in both residential and commercial applications. 
  • Wax can give a polished look that will help make floors cleaning easier.

Floor Shine Polish (FSP) is an economical, slip resistant floor finish designed to provide high gloss and high durability to previously sealed surfaces. FSP can be applied over solvent base, water base, and epoxy and urethane sealers. FSP is long lasting, buffable, easy to apply and maintain, and provides a clear, very hard coating that is designed for interior only surfaces and to withstand heavy pedestrian traffic.

FSP exhibits excellent resistance to scuff and black heel marks, and acts as a renewable wearing surface that extends the life of the base sealer and protects the interior surface while providing increased gloss. Ideal uses are for chemically stained floors, or other commercial concrete flatwork or decorative stamping exposed to high traffic such as terminals, lobbies, showroom floors, restaurants, schools, malls, as well as residential kitchen floors, and living spaces.


 

INSTALLATION DIRECTIONS:

TEST AREA: Always test TI FSP on a small area of the surface to be treated before overall application to determine suitability and results. Use a test location that is out of the way and not in the main area of the final area. SITE PREPARATION: Surfaces must be clean and free from oil, paint, wax, sealers, curing compounds, related surface stains, rubber marks, dirt and laitance. Use a trusted degreaser for removing grease, oil, or rubber marks if present. After cleaning, rinse the surface thoroughly with potable water and allowed to dry completely. APPLICATION: Pour TI FSP into a mop bucket and gently squeeze out excess material. Close container after each use. Do not place mop into a bucket wringer and mechanically compress out, which can cause foam build-up and possible bubble formation in the finish coat. Apply the TI FSP in a figure 8 motion that allows for 20-25% overlap and no missed spots. Allow to dry 15-25 minutes between coats. If applied on top of a solvent based acrylic sealer such as Stampsheen, allow the sealer to cure for a minimum of 48 hours prior to applying the FSP. FSP will harden in approximately 4 hours. Allow 24 hours to dry completely. CLEAN-UP: Use soap and warm water promptly after application, before the TI FSP is allowed to dry. MAINTENANCE: Clean surfaces with mild soap and water. Abrasive cleaners, strong chemicals, acids and floor strippers can damage the final seal, in addition to abrasion from pedestrian traffic and routine scuffs and scratches. Rinse thoroughly and completely with water after cleaning. Floor Shine Polish typically lasts up to one year depending on traffic volume, concrete surface hardness and wear. TI FSP may be buffed as needed with a suitable buffing machine and pads. COVERAGE: Approximately 150-200 square feet per gallon (36.8-49.0 square meters / liter). CAUTIONS: Do not dilute or thin. The use of a polyester fiber mop (microfiber) is recommended to achieve even leveling, avoid the use of cotton mops. Apply when the surface temperature is above 50°F (10°C) and rising. Do not apply in conditions of high wind, blowing dust, or high humidity. Do not apply if water exposure is expected within 24 hours of application. Early water exposure can cause permanent whitening or discoloration. TI FSP is not suitable for concrete subject to chemical or caustic exposure or containment, warehouse floors, or applications that are exposed to subgrade water or under continuous submersion. While they are wet, sealed surfaces will be more slippery than unsealed surfaces. Not recommended for use in exterior applications or on pool decks or smooth, wet areas that have high pedestrian use. Do not use on surfaces which will later receive concrete overlays, toppings, coatings, or joint sealants. TI FSP is to be applied on top of concrete that has been sealed with TI clear or tinted sealer products. FSP may be used on countertops as long as food is not introduced until product is cured.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions About Floor Wax:

Question: How many coats of wax do I have to apply?

Answer: It’s entirely up to you and your preference for protection and sheen

Question: Do I have to buff or burnish the wax?

Answer: Technically no, but for best results, we recommend doing so – especially in cases where you’re looking to create a very smooth glossy finished floor coating.

Question: Can wax stand alone as a floor sealer?

Answer: It is not recommended. You will want to first seal the surface with a concrete sealer/coating (sold here).
