Causes of Air Bubbles

  • Rapid or Incorrect Application: Applying the varnish too quickly or unevenly can trap air underneath.
  • Too Thick Varnish: A layer of varnish that is too thick prevents air from escaping properly.
  • Temperature and Humidity: Inappropriate climatic conditions can influence bubble formation.

Floor Preparation

  • Thorough Cleaning: Ensure the surface is perfectly clean and free from dust.
  • Precision Sanding: Proper sanding creates a smooth and even surface, essential for successful varnishing.

Varnish Application Techniques

Choosing the Right Equipment

  • Quality Brushes and Rollers: Use suitable tools to reduce the risk of bubble formation.
  • Gentle and Uniform Application: Avoid pressing too hard or working too rapidly.

Layer Management

  • Thin and Multiple Layers: Favor several thin layers over one thick layer.
  • Drying Time: Respect drying times between layers to allow air to escape.

Environmental Control

  • Ideal Temperature: Work in an environment that is neither too hot nor too cold.
  • Controlled Humidity: Excessive humidity can promote bubble formation.

Tips from Plancher Deluxe

  • Gentle Stirring of the Varnish: Avoid vigorously shaking the varnish before application.
  • Meticulous Examination: Inspect each layer after application to detect and eliminate bubbles.
