Wooden stair treads most susceptible intensive load. It is the ladder most quickly lose their initial appearance after a few years of operation. There are several ways to use parquet lacquer as a coating for wooden stair steps , which allows for a long time not to worry about repairs or restoration topcoat stairs.
Consider the option number 1 . This is more appropriate for those owners of multi-storey apartment , who prefer varnish. We will use the систему Trae-Luxury , consisting of at least three layers of coating.
Wooden stairs can be either from a new timber , and previously treated.
If steps are old paint , then it must be oshkurit , remove as much as possible . Sanded wood should always be parallel to the grain , in which case the sandpaper , even if they are scratches on the tree , they are still not visible . So , wooden surface is ready for the first coat system for parquet lacquers Trae-Lyx. Please do not forget , that the pores of the wood open during grinding and in this state are about 30 minute. This is the time of the open pores of the tree is beneficial to the perception of the treated wood varnish , Wood takes a product applied as much , how much is necessary. As the first layer apply Trae-Lyx ground . Ground for a tree can be applied by roller velor , which is designed specifically for the application of water paints.
Some suitable use is often asked , why do you need to do before applying primer paint for wood flooring? Give an answer:
– firstly , creates adhesion next lacquer with wooden base ;
– secondly , ground has a very large dry residue ( order 42 % , for aquatic products) and it fills the pores , cracks in wood , slits , which occasionally appear between the individual strips of wood. I want to note , that not every soil has the ability to fill , как Trae-Luxury грунт , this should give due.
– thirdly , soil isolates the wood surface from contact with the lacquer layer. This is one of the most important properties . Some wood species contain a variety of chemicals , that can negatively affect the net result varnish , that is, the final coating of varnish may appear some red spots , if not to make the primer.

After drying on a wooden surface is slightly higher pile. It must proshkurit sanded with grain 180-220. Soil has a high gloss , so it will be clearly seen , in what place you missed and did not grind primed surface.
After this intermediate sanding, wipe the surface with a damp cloth.
Apply the varnish for parquet:
Now proceed directly to the Coating. For this we use a two-component varnish Trae-Lyx for special steps. As the mixture of lacquer and hardener lives near 2 hours , need to mix so much , how you can use for this time. We presume , that consumption is about paint 12 m ² per liter . The mixture was kneaded , waiting 10 minute , The mixture was stirred again . You can now begin the process of painting. For this purpose we use again velor roller , Catan varnish with the grain.
Nail also dries approximately 2-3 o'clock . After this period of time, you can do it again intermediate sanding , but sandpaper is necessary to take a more fine-grained , 240-320.
Apply the second coat of varnish parquet. The number of layers can be more , than two.
But two - a minimum.
After , you have made the final finishing coat of varnish , easy to use, you can begin , ie. take the stairs in socks , shoeless , after 8 hours. Complete hardening occurs during 7 days.
