Bona Mix&Fill Plus - Outstanding Waterborne Filler for Wooden Floors

The waterbased joint filler from Bona has improved qualities
01 Jan, 2016

Bona Mix Fix PlusAny professional wood floor sanding specialist knows the importance of the quality of the wood floor filler. The gap filling is an essential part of the floor restoration process. Well-done gap filling contributed to the smooth and even finish of the wooden floor. Most of the gap fillers nowadays are solvent-based due to their durability. However, Bona has created Bona Mix & Fill Plus, which is a waterborne gap filler with a filling capacity equal to solvent-based alternatives.

Bona Mix & Fill Plus is a fast drying product with good abrasion properties. Those characteristics of the wood floor filler speed up the floor restoration process and make it a desirable choice most of the wood floor sanding companies. In addition, Bona Mix & Fill Plus needs to be applied only once in normal condition, which helps the floor sanding specialists save time, effort and money.

Bona Mix & Fill Plus is compatible with all Bona finishes and oil. It has very low solvent content, which means that you can work without unpleasant smell and hazardous fumes. Bona Mix & Fix Plus can be used for gap filling of wooden floors of tropical species such as Jatoba and Merbau.
