Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer – Single Pack
Strong Premium Floor Lacquer is the greenest product from the Junckers brand. It has the same resistance, if not better, than all other famous two pack water based floor lacquers from well established brands. It does not require a toxic hardener to be diluted and it can be applied over oil based wood stains from Junckers. Yes, you read right, a single pack water based floor lacquer that can be applied over oil stains.

At half of the cost and with an increased coverage area, you can now use Junckers Strong Plus Floor Lacquer.
Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer – Coverage area
You are just about to use one of the most cost effective and durable water based floor lacquers available in Ireland. It is recommended that you prime the wood surface with Junckers Prelak Floor Primer before sealing it with the lacquer. The product will cover around 10 sq meters per L on the 1st coat and 12-14 sq meters per L for the second coat. If applied without a primer, it will cover around 8 sq meter per L, varying from surface to surface. We recommend maximum 3 coats of finish on any surface. The idea of a water based floor lacquer is to seal and protect wood surfaces without glazing. You want to see the natural fibre of the floor.
Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer – How To Apply It
You need to make sure that the surface you are planning to seal is finish free, dust free and dry. Start removing the old finish with 24-40 grit sandpaper and go up to 80 grit. Do not skip, do not sand with 24 grit and then move to 80. Start with 24, 40, 60 and then 80. Apply 1 thick coat of primer (Junckers Prelak Floor Primer is the ideal product), wait about 1 hour to dry and sand the whole surface one more time with 120 or 150 grit sandpaper. Remove all the dust and apply 2 more coats of water based floor lacquer with about 2 hours break between coats. Very hard wood floors or furniture can be sealed without a primer, apply 2 coats of varnish. Do not apply more than 3 coats to avoid glazing the floor or the furniture.
Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer – Finishes
The most popular finish is the satin or silk matt finish. There are two types of finishes available, extra matt and silk matt finishes. If you are looking for a 100% natural finish, you are better off going for a matt finish. If you are looking for a bit of shine but not too glossy, you should be going for a silk matt finish. A matt finish is nearly invisible. Make sure that you really want an invisible finish on your floors. The matt finish will be absorbed by the wood instantly and it will look like the surface was not treated at all. Junckers does not manufacture glossy varnishes. A very glossy finish would make the wood surface look artificial.
Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer – Stains
Many types of wood stains were created to fit all needs and expectations. All brands of wood care products sell a few types of wood stains. All these wood stains are oil based and require a solvent sealant or a two pack water based varnish. Junckers is the only brand that manufactures oil based wood stains that can be sealed with single pack floor lacquers. It costs less, it covers faster, is less polluting and it lasts longer. No need to use toxic hardeners. Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer is guaranteed to work well over Junckers Rustic Wood Stains. It might work with other brands as well but pre-testing is required.
Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer – Coverage area
Most water based floor lacquers would have a coverage area of around 8 to 14 sq meter per 1L. The final coverage area can vary from floor to floor and tradesman to tradesman. There are few easy ways of reducing absorption and increasing the coverage area.
- Prime the floor – a primed floor will reduce the absorption rate by 50%. You will achieve better results faster and the varnish will dry very fast
- Respect the drying times – make sure that you only apply the second coat after the first coat is dry 100%
- Use a proper roller – do not use a cheap roller to varnish the floor.Proper Junckers varnishing rollers will even up the lacquer better and will reduce waste
- Dilute the last coat by 5% – add 5% of water in the varnishing bottle and stir well.
Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer – Cost effective
Unlike other types of water based floor lacquers, Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer is much thicker and it levels up the floor much better. Its cream like composition fills up all the imperfections and all the small gaps. With only 1 coat you will achieve nearly perfect results. The second coat will only improve the smoothness. Most other, more expensive water based floor lacquers will require at least 3 coats of finish to achieve the same results that can be achieved with only 2 coats of Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer.
Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer – Maintenance
Like all professional wood floor finishes, Junckers Strong Premium Floor Lacquer will require regular maintenance with proper wood floor cleaners. A brand new wood floor can last 10 years or 10 days. It is essential to have a flat mop, it is essential to use a professional wood floor cleaner (Junckers Sylva Cleaner) and it is essential that you don`t use bleach or bleach based products on your floors. A professional wood floor cleaner will break the dirt without damaging the varnish. A professional wood floor cleaner will evaporate fast to avoid damaging the floor.
Some floors will wear off quicker in areas where there is more traffic. If the floor is starting to look a bit tired and patchy, you can easily refresh it with 1 coat of Junckers Refresh, one of the best wood floor refreshers ever invented.
