It should not be diluted.Surface PreparationSurface must be clean and free of dirtand contaminants, old polishes must beremoved, floor must be completely drybefore Legacy FLOOR WAX application.New concrete should be cured forat least 14 days, Legacy FLOOR WAXmay be applied over any Legacy sealer.Acid stained floors should be neutralizedwith baking soda and water, an ammonia-watersolution or any other effectiveneutralizer before sealing.Packaging1 Gallon (3.8 L) jugsCoverageOne gallon of Legacy FLOOR WAXshould cover between 1200 to 2000square feet on smooth floor. Coveragewill vary according to the porosity andcomposition of the floor material. If youare getting less coverage than expectedyou may be laying the finish too tickly,which may reduce the gloss and increasethe drying time. More coverage thanexpected means that you are laying thematerial toot thinly which may createstreaking and a dull appearance.Legacy FLOOR WAX will dry to touchin about 30 minutes (more time maybe needed in low temperatures) and itmust be fully dry before applying moreproducts. Test for dryness in several areasbefore proceeding with the next finishapplication. Drying conditions will varyaccording to humidity, airflow, temperatureand thickness of each coat.Forced drying of the finish may damageits appearance. If fans or blowers areused, instruct your crew to blow the airindirectly across the floor surface insteadof directly onto the floor. Direct air currentson wet finished may cause the finishto dry too quickly inhibiting leveling andgloss.For commercial jobs apply a minimumof 5 coats for either new work or freshlystripped floors.ApplicationAlways test small area for compatibilityand satisfactory finish; Legacy FLOORWAX is designed to work with allLegacy Resinous Sealers. Once surfaceis properly prepared, apply LegacyFLOOR WAX with a wax applicator,sponge mop or other appropriate tool.Prior to application the wax applicatorshould be prepared as follows: Run apiece of tape over the entire surface ofthe mop then pull out, do it again overthe whole mop, do this to remove lintand loose particles that may damage thefinish. After lint is removed wet mop andwring out until almost dry, then use. Useonly clean mops and do not contaminateA Division of Solomon Colors, Inc.CA-LEG-WAX 12/09legacycolor.com


Legacy FLOOR WAXCharacteristics and Applicationsfinish mops with cleaners or strippers.Employees should wear clean footwearwithout threads, to avoid making impressionsor soiling newly finished surface.Easily removed crepe-soled shoes arerecommended to ensure that no oil or gritis tracked onto coated areas. Pour LegacyFLOOR WAX into a clean bucket or placea garbage bag inside the bucket to avoidcontaminating the finish.Apply thin coats using a figure 8 patternoverlapping 2” to 3”onto the previous path.This pattern creates a smooth even flow thateliminates swirl patterns. Keep the materialclose to the application area to avoid havingthe finish dry too quickly or to spreadunevenly. Measure the finish product sothat there are minimal amounts of unusedproduct left in the bucket at the end of thejob. Never pour unused finish back into theoriginal container as it will contaminateand damage the product within a shorttime.PropertiesCoverage ......1,200-2,000square feet/gallonDrying time ....................... 30 - 40 minutesFragrance ..............................................
