JuJu ® Performance Floor Finish
Juju® Performance Floor Finish is an industrial coating that we have adapted to resemble that of dance floor vinyl by adjusting the slip factor.
Juju® works extremely well on most prepared and sealed surfaces and can be used to correct the slipperiness of timber floor surfaces that have been finished in a manner not necessarily suited to dance.
Most often, Juju® is compatible with polyurethane finishes and serves the dual function of toughening them up whilst correcting their slip factor. It important the floor is not too badly worn as the solvent in Juju will react if able to get underneath the existing coating. Juju does not like 2 pack finishes and will react badly to these.
Juju® works equally well as a general surface finish in high traffic areas in general, but remember it is paint, and whilst tough, it isn’t bulletproof. A coat of primer prior to application is required. We recommend our own Juju Primer and also supply Bona Prime Intense.
Juju® is applied with a progression of rollers, starting with 12mm for the primer/1st coat, 9mm for the second coat and 6mm for the final coat. It gives an even better finish when sprayed. We supply it as a clear product and this means you can retain the wonderful look of timber floor while limiting the damage done from hard foot fall.
If you need to mark up your floor with tape, please consider using Liquid Chalk to avoid potential de-lamination. This is available at art and office supply stores it is a good alternative and won’t lift the finish. Where colour is required, use a matt finish acrylic paint. This will act as the first sealer layer in the application process.
We have found that if you wish to tap dance on a Juju® surface it is best not to put colour underneath. The impact of tap shoes will chip through and expose the floor material. While the floor is still quite useable, it does take on an unattractive speckled appearance.
Juju® Performance Floor Paint will scuff and mark over time, like conventional vinyl, this is the inevitable patina of a performance floor. We have developed a Tester Kit and strongly recommend that you purchase this to ensure that you are selecting the best option for your floor and intended use.
