3. Place a clean, dry Finish Pad on floor with white backing side up.

4. Hold Quick Connect Frame over pad, then slide it down to attach pad with hook and loop system.

Microfiber Floor Finishing Steps

9. Using "Figure 8" strokes, fill in outlined area with a light coat of finish. Finish should be no thicker than a piece of wax paper. Foam pad liner helps to hold enough finish to cover outlined area.

10. Working backward, be sure to begin next area before finish dries to prevent lines and ridges.

11. Repeat steps 5 through 10 as required to complete the job.

13. After emptying, rinse bucket and valve with hot water to prevent finish from hardening on sides and drain.

14. OPTION: To store finish in bucket for reuse, use air tight lid to prevent drying/hardening.

15. & 16. Clean pad well with hot water and hang to air dry or store in sealed plastic bag to prevent hardening.
