  1. Prepare Floor: This finish is not designed for application to bare wood floors. Use only on previously sealed surfaces. Use only after proper training. Scrub and Recoat: Dust mop floor and remove all chewing gum and labels. Prepare floor with Sport Prep™ (425SF) or Citrus Scrub ‘N Shine (525FR) following the product label directions. NOTE: Test previously coated floor in an inconspicuous area before recoating to determine compatibility with existing finish. Apply no more than 2 coats in 24 hours and a maximum of 3 coats in 48 hours. See finish application instructions below.
  2. Apply Finish: Stir gently before using. Apply at a rate of 800-1000 square feet per gallon (20-25 m2 per litre). Use a weighted T-bar with a clean, synthetic pad. Apply thin, even coats with the grain of the wood while walking at a slow, even pace. Walking too fast may produce excessive bubbling in the finish. Allow a dry time of at least 1 hour between coats. Humid conditions require longer dry time. After the first coat has dried, apply a second coat. It may be necessary to screen the first coat if grain raising has occurred or it has dried longer than 4 hours. If so, screen the floor with a previously used 120 grit screen or maroon pad. Always vacuum and tack thoroughly after screening. NOTE: Check expiration date. Contact Essential for batch re-certification if expiration date is exceeded. Do not pour unused finish back into original container.
  3. Maintain Daily: Dust mop at least daily, or more as required, to keep floor dust and dirt free. Damp mop spills, salt residue, etc. with Sport Clean (1143SF) or Blue Concentrate (2085FC) and a thoroughly wrung mop.
  4. Maintain Weekly: If soil conditions are heavy, auto scrub weekly with red pads and a 2 ounce per gallon (16 ml per liter) dilution of Sport Clean (1143SF) or Blue Concentrate (2085FC). Refer to the Wood Floor Care Wall Chart or Manual for further details.
  5. CAUTION: Do not use cleaning compounds other than Essential’s Sport Clean (1143SF) or Blue Concentrate (2085FC) as they will reduce product performance and longevity.
  6. Restoration: Dust mop floor. Follow restoration directions for Sport Prep™ (425SF), Citrus Scrub ‘N Shine (525FR) or Gelcon™ (207FR). Refer to the Wood Floor Care Wall Chart or Manual for further details.

See label directions and SDS for complete usage and safety instructions.

WARNING: Reproductive Harm –

Application Hints

  • Satin Sport Kote® should be gently mixed before application.
  • During application, make sure air handlers are OFF and doors are closed to eliminate flash drying. After the application is complete and the finish has skinned over, ventilation can be turned back on.
  • Satin Sport Kote® can be applied over most existing finishes including oil-modified products. If uncertain, test in a small, inconspicuous area for compatibility first.
  • Under high humidity, dry times for Satin Sport Kote® will vary greatly. Do not apply a second coat if the first coat is still tacky.
  • Two coats is usually sufficient on recoats. If a third coat is desired, make sure the previous coats are thoroughly dry before applying product.
