Finishing Tap Dance Floor6/27
I am currently building a dance floor for a friend. I used 2 coats of PPG timeless penetrating oil finish after sanding down the top of the wood with 80 grit and then 160.
After the finish dried fully, my friend said that the floor is incredibly slippery. Another friend of mine suggested sanding down the floor one more time and then re-finishing with a 2 part water based poly finish, and then Bona AmberSeal. I was wondering if this would lessen the amount of slickness the floor has, while still making it slightly slick enough to slide back and forth on. I also noticed the floor has some dings in it after he spent the afternoon dancing on it. I don't know much about finishing wood, so hopefully you guys can help me out!
Sand. Bona Traffic. End of story.
Awesome, thanks. What grit do you think I should use? Something finer and just a light sanding or should I try to sand down pretty deep through the finish?
I would guess that the floor may be so slippery due to it being sanded up to a 160 grit. Normally on wood floors the final grit used for the sanding is 120 grit. 160 would make the wood very slippery.
What I would suggest is buffing the floors with a 220 grit sand paper, and then apply a coating of Bona Anti slip finish. This should fix it up for you. Hope this helps.
