Taking Care of Your Maple Sports Floor ,

Your Gym Floor has a Non slip coating over it. It is possible to slicking this coating by using Bleach, .This is a no no.

Wood is porous and can absorb and release moisture. If the humidity rises, your wood floor will absorb that moisture, causing it to expand. If the humidity falls, your wood floor will release moisture, causing it to shrink. Many installations include expansion voids around the perimeter and around columns or floor inserts, plus expansion joints built into the floor surface. These features permit natural, normal expansion and contraction without damage to the floor. Too much moisture causes abnormal expansion, which can lead to cupping or buckling of your floor. In abnormally dry conditions the wood will contract, leaving separations between flooring strips.

Steps For Proper Maintenance: Dry Tac THE FLOOR DAILY with a properly treated dust mop. If the floor is used heavily, sweep it up to three times per day.

WIPE UP SPILLS and any moisture on the floor surface.

MAKE SURE THE HEATING/VENTILATING/AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM IS FUNCTIONING PROPERLY and set to maintain indoor relative humidities between 35 percent and 50 percent year round. In areas of consistently high or low outside humidity, a 15 percent fluctuation will not adversely affect the maple.

REMOVE Scuffing and shoe marks using an approved floor cleaner applied with a soft cloth Contact your floor finish manufacturer for approved cleaning products.

INSPECT FLOOR FOR TIGHTENING OR SHRINKAGE. During wet weather, check for water leakage around doors and windows. Remove debris from expansion voids.

ALWAYS PROTECT THE FLOOR when moving heavy portable equipment or lifts. Ensure portable equipment does NOT have crowned wheels or wheels that include center ridges remaining from the molding process. These types of wheels can create very significant point loads.

Please Observe the Following: Shutting down the ventilation system in your facility for a prolonged period of time, Is a Bad Idea.

Clean your floor using No scrubbing machinery or power scrubbers that use water under pressure. Water is your floor's worst enemy!

Temperature & Humidity
Temperature should be kept between 55 -75°F. Humidity level should be
kept between 35% - 50% to insure minimal wood movement.
Routine Cleaning

Dry mop the floor daily to eliminate buildup of dust. As needed, tack floor with PoloPlaz
Hardwood Floor Cleaner to remove perspiration, oils, spills, and residue from foot traffic.
Do not use dust mop treatments or floor cleaners that contain wax, paraffin, silicone, and
mineral oil. Do not use pre-treated dust mops. Use of these products can cause adhesion
problems when recoating the floor.
Dirt, sand, and grit will dull and accelerate the wear of the finish. Removing any sand or
grit will extend the life of the floor. Place floor mats or rugs at all entryways, bathroom
exits, or other high traffic areas to remove excessive dirt or moisture. Spills or liquids on
the floor should be wiped up immediately.


Power Scrubbers

Never use power scrubbers or automatic floor cleaning machines that
disperse water on the floor (especially water under pressure). The use
of scrubber machines will void the warranty on your floor.
Power scrubbers were designed for other surfaces such as terrazzo and
vinyl floors. The chemicals typically used in these machines are too

aggressive for wood and finishes. Even the softest brushes will scratch and dull the
finish. The machine’s liquid and scrubbing action can cup the floor, and pull paint and
finish from the wood.

Floor Covers and Mats

Gym floor covers should never be used on a freshly finished floor until at least three
weeks after the last coat of finish has been applied. For complete curing, the finish
surface must be exposed to oxygen in the ambient air. Covering the floor during this
process would deny the finish of oxygen needed to complete the reaction. This may
result in a partially cured coating with poor physical properties.
Also, it is imperative that the floor be cleaned before the cover is laid. Otherwise, any
grit or dust on the floor will mar the floor when the cover is walked on or when any loads
are moved on the floor. Covers should not be taped to the floors. The adhesive in most
tapes will attack the finish and result in delamination.

APPLICATION
Three coats of GlitsaSC or one coat of a Glitsa waterborne sealer and two coats of
GlitsaSC are recommended to achieve a durable, scuff resistant finish. Apply GlitsaSC
at temperatures between 60º - 70º F. (15.6 - 21.1º C.), and 30%-80% RH. High humidity,
or low temperatures will extend dry times. Make sure to have indirect ventilation while
applying GlitsaSC. Glitsa recommends straining all waterborne finishes that have been
stored in partially full containers.
• Rock container gently (do not shake). Pour GlitsaSC into clean pour bucket.
• Dilute accompanying GlitsaSC Crosslinker 1 to 1 with water. (See label instructions).
• Add Crosslinker to GlitsaSC while stirring with a stir stick until well mixed. Allow to
stand for ten minutes before using.
• Apply GlitsaSC by using a heavyweight T-bar. Make sure to use a new, lightly waterdampened
applicator. For best results, rolling is not recommended.
• Start by pouring a 3”-5” puddle of GlitsaSC with the grain of the wood, from wall to wall.
Using the snowplow method, pull GlitsaSC with the grain of the wood, from wall to wall.
• Use a cut-in pad or a T-bar to feather out turns.
• Maintain a 3” – 5” puddle at all times, as this will help to ensure even coverage, and a
uniform final appearance.
• When GlitsaSC has dried to the touch, ventilate premises, while maintaining
temperatures of 60º - 70º F. (15.6º - 21.1º C.). Optimum air quality is achieved through
aggressive ventilation.
• Once dry, abrade with a conditioning pad and 180 grit or finer sanding strips.
• Vacuum carefully, and tack with a clean, water-dampened, Glitsa Tack Mop.
• Abrading is not necessary between the second and third coats if applied within four
hours of each other. A light abrading, with a pad and strips is necessary if the floor
has dried for more than four hours. Note: Aggressive abrading may result in visible
abrasion marks after second coat has dried.
• For best results, allow a minimum of 8 hours dry time prior to final coat.
• Apply no more than two coats in a 24-hour period.
• A fourth coat is optional for high wear or commercial applications. Do not apply more
than two coats of waterborne per day.
SURFACE PREPARATION
Natural wood floors:
• Sand to 100-120 grit using NWFA approved methods
• Screen with a 100-120 grit screen.
• Remove all sanding dust from the floor by thoroughly vacuuming and tack with a Glitsa
Tack Mop.
• At this time a first coat of GlitsaSC or a Glitsa waterborne sealer can be applied to the
wood surface. See waterborne sealer directions for proper application and dry times.
• For a lighter look on maple or white oak floors use a Glitsa waterborne sealer.
Stained floors:
• Sand to 100-120 grit using NWFA approved methods.
• Screen with a 100-120 grit screen.
• Remove all sanding dust from the floor by thoroughly vacuuming and tacking with a dry
Glitsa Tack Mop.
• Refer to directions on Glitsa GoldSeal Stains for application procedures and dry times.
• Wood tone stained floors can sealed with GlitsaSC or a Glitsa waterborne sealer. See
waterborne sealer directions for proper application and dry times.
• GlitsaSC is not recommended for pastel stained floors. For best results over pastel
stained floors, use TruSeal™ and GlitsaMax™.
Recoats over existing wood floors:
• Glitsa GlitsaSC can be applied over a wide variety of floor coatings available on the
market today. It is the user’s responsibility to determine compatibility and adhesion
qualities before use.
• Best results are achieved by thoroughly cleaning the floor with a damp mop and Glitsa
Clean Wood Floor Cleaner mixed with warm water. See directions on Glitsa Clean Wood
Floor Cleaner bottle.
• When floor has dried, abrade with a conditioning pad and 180 sanding strips. Care must
be taken not to abrade too aggressively, as sanding scratches can show through the final
film.
Product may be crosslinked one additional time after a 12 hour period. For best results
always use fresh material for final coat.
• Thoroughly vacuum and tack the floor with a Glitsa Tack Mop dampened with water.
• Glitsa GlitsaSC can now be applied.
Maintenance
• To keep GlitsaSC looking its best, prevent dirt (grit) build up on the floor.
• Use walk-off mats in high traffic areas and periodically dust mop with a Glitsa Maintenance
Mop as needed
• When deep cleaning is necessary, use Glitsa Clean™ Wood Floor Cleaner.
• Use Safeglides® felt floor protectors on your furniture.
• When GlitsaSC begins to show wear, or when recommended cleaning procedure fails to
clean the floor, recoating may be necessary.
