Hillyard Basecoat II & 1907® Wet Scrub & Coat Procedures


Hillyard Scrub and Recoat procedures using
the wet preparation method and applying Basecoat II and 1907 gym finish. NOTICE:
When utilizing the wet preparation method, wood floors must contain
sufficient finish build. New or sanded floor should be recoated two to three
times before wet preparation. Also, the wet preparation method should NOT be
used for glue-down installations. They should only be prepared dry. Step 1:
Inspect the floor and remove any gum or tape. Step 2:
Clean, scrub, and abrade.
The equipment and supplies required for step 2 include a 175 rpm floor machine
and driver, Hillyard Pre-Game or Tack-It, 3M surface preparation pads, SPPs, clean
mop buckets with clean mops and handles, and a wet vacuum. Prepare the cleaning solution in the mop
bucket. If you are using Pre-Game, dilute it at a rate of 1 gallon of Pre-Game to 4 gallons of water. If you are using Tack-It, add it undiluted to a mop
bucket. Any non-Hillyard cleaners are not recommended in our procedures. Apply the
solution over a 10 foot by 10 foot area. Scrub the floor thoroughly with
overlapping passes to ensure sufficient cleaning. Vacuum the slurry with a wet
vacuum. Rinse the same area with a mop bucket of clean water and pick up rinse
with a wet vacuum. Repeat these steps until the entire floor has been properly
cleaned and abraded. After each side of the SPP has been used
once, replace with the new SPP and continue scrubbing. Step 3:
Tack and Tape. The equipment and supplies needed for Step 3 include terrycloth towels, a clean
push broom, a clean mop bucket and wringer, a CHIX-brand stretch and dust
tool and cloths, and blue painter’s tape, Hillyard Pre-Game or Tack-It. Prepare the cleaning solution is described in step 2. Soak a terry cloth towel in the solution
and wring it out. Use the push broom and towel to damp tack the floor until clean.
Keep moving the towel every pass to get a clean edge to tack with. Allow the
floor to dry. Next, dry tack the floor with the CHIX stretch and dust tool and
cloths. Keep moving the cloth every pass to get a clean edge to tack with. Tape
off any volleyball standards or related objects within the court with blue
painter’s tape to prevent finishing over them. Step 4:
Apply Basecoat II. The equipment and supplies needed for step 4 include a lightweight t-bar, a synthetic t-bar pad, a watering can, and Basecoat II. Run a bead of Basecoat II
the length of the gym using the watering can. Saturate the t-bar pad and pull the
applicator at a 30-degree angle the length of the floor, always keeping the
Basecoat II flowing towards the unfinished side of the floor. Continue
until the entire floor is coated Basecoat II should be applied at a rate of
500 to 550 square feet per gallon. Turn on the exhaust system one to two hours
after application. Allow the floor to dry 4 to 6 hours before proceeding.
Temperature and humidity will affect the drying and curing properties. Step 5:
Apply 1907 gym finish. The equipment and supplies needed for
step 5 include a lightweight t-bar, synthetic t-bar pad, a watering can, and 1907
gym finish. Important:
If Basecoat II dries longer than 10 hours, the floor must be abraded with Hillyard maroon pads at a rate of 250 square feet per
side and tacked as stated in Step 3 prior to finishing with 1907. Apply 1907 using the same method
as described in step 4. 1907 should be applied at a rate of 500
to 550 square feet per gallon. Turn on the exhaust system one to two hours
after application. Step 6:
Allow 1907 gym finish to cure at least 72 hours before
opening up to traffic. Your floor is looking great and ready for play!
Congratulations on a job well done!
