VerMeister Idro 2K
A two component polyurethane waterborne lacquer.
In the “natural wood effect” version, IDRO 2K produces a natural appearance to floors together with a uniformity and cleanliness comparable to the results achieved with impregnation cycles with oil and/or wax. IDRO 2K combines qualities of resistance to abrasion and to rubber marks never before achieved by waterborne products so it is even recommended for use on heavy duty flooring (in salons, shops, etc.).
If it is applied directly without a sealer, it brightens up the colour of the wood quite considerably, without leading to yellowing over time.
Before proceeding with the application, the surface must be treated with a Vermeister waterborne sealer or solvent based two component primer. In the latter case, it must be remembered that species of wood subject to strong oxidation (doussiè, iroko, etc.) acquire very dark shades when they are treated with solvent based finishes. For this reason, the barrier created by the polyurethane primer must be continuous and uniform over the whole surface area to prevent the formation over time of unpleasant darker patches. Consequently, it is important to take care not to “wear through” the layer of primer when sanding.
Mix component A with component B, in the prescribed proportions, stirring continuously to prevent the formation of skin or lumps. If these impurities should be noticed, it is advisable to filter the product before use.
Apply IDRO 2K in a uniform way. Apply any second coat 3-5 hours later without sanding. However, if the interval before overcoating should be longer than 5 hours, the floor must be sanded before applying the finish to prevent separation from occurring. Alternatively, IDRO 2K can be applied directly on the wood instead of the sealer. Use of IDRO 2K is not recommended on solvent based semi-gloss/matt polyurethane moisture-cure finishes due to the risk of flaking in the case of insufficient sanding. To facilitate the application of the product, it can be diluted with 5 – 10% of SOLUZIONE after the two components have been mixed together. If the product is diluted any more than the quantities stated above, coverage may be reduced with a consequent lack of uniformity in the finished appearance.
