Conditioning Pads System - siafast Delta Sheets
siafast Delta Sheets are designed for abrading Bonaseal® sealer to eliminate grain raise. Delta Sheets are used attached to Bona® Conditioning Pads as shown in the photo. The unique "delta" shape and nature of the abrasive compound provide superior performance with a minimum of loading.
- Removes raised wood fiber and ridges that create a rough surface.
- Eliminates grain raise when used to smooth Bonaseal®.
- Superior non-loading characteristics and contoured delta shape means increased production capacity per sheet.
- Easy to use.
- Just press into position.
- No bolts, screws or ties.
- No cutting or measuring.
siafast Delta Sheets are designed to be used attached to Bona® Conditioning Pads for smoothing Bonaseal® prior to applying the first finish coat. Removes raised wood fiber and ridges that create a rough surface. lntercoat abrasion of solvent-based sealers and finishes when more aggressive abrading is required than the Conditioning Pad can provide alone.
Note: siafast Delta Sheets are only necessary on open wood grains, such as red or white oak, that are subject to grain raise. A Conditioning Pad alone is usually sufficient for tight grain woods such as maple, birch or cherry.
HOW TO USE IT
It is recommended that 2 Delta Sheets be placed on the buffer's drive Pad (Bona® Conditioning Pad) arranged according to the illustration on the front of this sheet. This provides optimum cutting at a faster walking speed.
When operating a buffer with the Pad and Delta Sheets it is important to walk and move the machine quickly along the floor. When abrading, heat resulting from moving too slowly may cause the sealer to "gum" and collect too quickly on the Sheets or the Pad. (Screens or other stiff abrasives generate too much heat and work poorly for this purpose.).
Check the Delta Sheets and Pad frequently, perhaps every 50 square feet or so, for residue build-up. If they are allowed to collect cut residue, floor surface scratches may result. If cut residue is loading on the Sheets or Pad, it can be removed by tapping or scraping the surfaces with a piece of cardboard or a plastic scraper. • It is very important to overlap buffing lanes completely, making sure the abrasion pattern is uniform. This is especially true when changing Delta Sheets or Pads or turning the Pads over to the clean side. (Uneven abrasion technique may result in an uneven look when the finish is applied.)
Caution: Have several Pads available when doing larger jobs. It is more convenient to change Pads on the buffer every 300 - 400 feet, and then vacuum them all at one time at the end of the buffing procedure.
Note: Bona® Conditioning Pads are approximately 3/8" thick when new and compress when used. They provide very aggressive abrading when used to drive a screen on raw wood. However, when used for intercoat conditioning of Bonaseal®, consider using two Conditioning Pads, sandwiched together, to drive the Delta Sheets. This provides additional cushioning and allows more air to flow through the Pads, which helps to reduce heat buildup and keeps the loading of the Pad and Delta Sheets to a minimum.
