Preparation

Make sure surfaces to be varnished are sound, clean and dry. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.

  • All traces of grease, wax and polish must be completely removed.
  • Floor Sanding: For even appearance, prepare the floor by using an industrial drum sander and edge sander, available from a local hire shop. Always sand in the direction of the grain. A belt sander or orbital sander can be used for smaller areas. Remove all dust from floor and surrounding areas using suitable vacuum equipment.
New or bare wood
  • Sand the surface in the direction of the grain to remove any imperfections etc. and remove residues with a damp lint free cloth.
  • Seal all new or bare wood by applying one coat of Clear Gloss Diamond Glaze Varnish to help reduce absorbency variations, which can cause differences in colour and sheen. Wood dyes may be used prior to applying Diamond Glaze Varnish. It is recommended that a water- based dye be used.
Coated surfaces
  • Sand back to provide a good surface key and to give a uniform appearance.
  • Do not use wood dyes or stains over previous coatings as the adhesion will be poor.
  • Where the existing coating is defective it must be completely removed and the surface prepared as described for new or bare wood above.
Application

We recommend always follow the manufacturer's instructions found on the tin. Stir thoroughly, it is recommended that a small test area is applied before treating the entire surface to ensure compatibility.

  • Do not apply Dulux Trade Diamond Glaze in temperatures of 10°C or lower or in areas of high humidity or condensation.
  • Stir thoroughly before you begin, taking care not to use a whipping motion, which will introduce air and cause foaming when applied.
  • Before using coloured Diamond Glaze Varnish on base wood, pre-seal with a coat of Diamond Glaze Varnish Clear Gloss to minimise colour absorption differences.
  • Apply with a brush or short pile mohair roller only. Do not spray.
  • Apply 2 or 3 coats evenly and consistently, taking care to keep the 'wet edge' alive and finish off along the grain.
  • If you are applying a second coat, allow at least 2 hours between coats.
  • Rub down lightly along the grain between coats using a fine grade adhesive paper.
  • Surfaces should be protected from water, steam, spillages and hard stress, for example abrasion or polishing, for a minimum of 5 days after application.
  • Light foot traffic is allowed after 24 hours but to prevent possible damage to floor while the full mechanical resistance develops, avoid heavy wear and do not replace carpet or rugs or move furniture for at least 7 days after application.
Aftercare & Storage
Avoid storing or transporting in extremes of temperature and protect from frost. Store and transport upright
FAQ's

Q. Is Dulux Trade Diamond Glaze hard wearing?

A. Diamond Glaze is known for its exceptional durability and resistance to wear and tear. It provides a tough, protective coating that helps to extend the lifespan of the surfaces it is applied to. This makes it particularly suitable for high-traffic areas or surfaces that are prone to frequent use and abrasion. The varnish has excellent scratch and stain resistance properties, making it ideal for surfaces that require added protection. It helps to prevent scratches, scuffs, and stains, which can be particularly beneficial for wooden floors, furniture, and other surfaces that are susceptible to damage.

Q. Is Dulux Trade Diamond Glaze easy to apply?

A. The varnish is formulated for easy application, allowing for smooth and even coverage. It can be applied with a brush, roller, or spray, depending on the specific requirements and preferences of the user. The ease of application saves time and effort during the coating process. Diamond Glaze has a relatively fast drying time, which allows for efficient project completion. Depending on the environmental conditions and thickness of the applied coat, it typically dries within a few hours, enabling subsequent layers or additional work to be carried out promptly.
