Mordanting stain COLORHIT
MORDANTING FOR PARQUET FLOORS
Sand the wood surface with 100-120 grit sandpaper to eliminate all traces of oil, wax or paint. Then clean the surface accurately to remove all dust, and proceed with one of the two methods below:
- Apply a coat of EPSILON or FAST 2004 diluted with DILUENTE GRIP (thin ratio 20-30% thinner, 80%-70% colour). Sand with 180 grit paper or mesh and apply a coat of COLORHIT by hand with a wad, diluted with DILUENTE GRIP (20% thinner, 80% colour). Without sanding, apply a coat or primer or finish. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions concerning the times between coats, indicated in the table. After waiting the appropriate length of time, sand the surface but be careful to not break through the film. Then, apply a second coat of finish. (This procedure is not advisable with high temperatures and low relative humidity, because the time allowed for application is considerably reduced).
- use a roller or brush to apply three coats of finish mixed with 2-5% coloured COLORHIT. Sand between coats.
It is advisable to apply FONDO 300 or EPSILON as the first coat, diluted with GRIP thinner ratio: 20% thinner, 80% colour). Sand the wood and treat with a mordent in one of the ways described. In any case, it is advisable to mix the finish with 2-4% COLORHIT white (do a preliminary test).

The tonality of the colours can vary remarkably according to the wood species and preparation, to the application method and the amount of applied product. Therefore we recommend to do preliminary tests before starting application.
