Floor Dressing

Sissons Floor Dressing is a polyurethane-based transparent plastic coating which gives an impressive finish on interior wooden surfaces. Its exceptionally hard wearing properties makes it the ideal finish for parquet floors. It is also suitable as a general purpose varnish for use on all interior wooden fitting and furniture, be it as a new coating or for redecoration.

Sissons Floor Dressing is available in Glossy or Satin finish.


Adequate surface preparation should be carried out before application. Ensure surfaces to be painted are dry, clean and free from loose or peeling parts, grease, wax or other contaminants.

Wooden surfaces should be smoothened by using a plane and/or sandpaper then dusted-off clean before paint application.

For redecoration, ensure that the previous coating is in good condition and is compatible to be overcoated with Sissons Floor Dressing. Slightly abrade the area to be re-painted with fine grit sandpaper then dust-off clean before painting to maximise adhesion and durability properties. Otherwise remove the previous coating via chemical or mechanical means then treat as per new surface

NOTE: If chemical means was used, re-clean and ensure no traces of it remain on the substrate before painting.

Wooden Surface

2 – 3 coats of Sissons Floor Dressing Glossy or Sissons Floor Dressing Satin
