Timber floor sanding

What is the Bona system?

Bona's mission is to bring out the best in timber floors.  As the world’s leading supplier to the timber flooring industry Bona supply everything required to install, prepare, coat and maintain a timber floor.  The Bona system ensures that a specifier, contractor or homeowner can have complete confidence that every Bona product is compatible with any other Bona product.  Whether you are installing a floor with adhesive, specifying a finish system or cleaning your living room there is a Bona product for you.

A true innovator
With Bona, you are always at the cutting edge in terms of techniques and products. By using the Bona System you know that you are always offering your customers the most advanced products on the market.  

For instance, Bona introduced their first water-based finish into the market in 1980.  Bona have continued to develop new innovative water-based products bringing higher performance with lower environmental impact.  The latest innovation is Bona Traffic HD which has only 44 g / Lt VOC content but gives over 60% better wear resistance than the original Bona Traffic combined with full use of commercial floors only 24 hours after the last application.  Traffic HD Anti-slip gives you the added benefit of a product which exceeds the P3 slip resistance requirements required for many commercial areas, and staircases in both commercial and domestic properties, but without the need to add an anti-slip material into the finish on site. Simply prepare the Traffic HD Anti-slip exactly as you would any other Bona Traffic product and coat the timber with the knowledge that you will meet the required slip resistance.

As a contractor you are working with the world leader in timber floor finishing products and with Bona's extensive range will always have the right product for the job.

Environmental responsibilities
Bona takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously. In January 2001 Bona Sweden became ISO 14001 certified. This is the international standard for environmental management systems stating how environmental work is to be carried out within a company. All industrial activity affects the environment and Bona is constantly making improvements in all aspects of its work in order to reduce adverse environmental impact.  As part of their commitment, in February 2009 Bona stopped producing solvent-based finishes in Europe and in 2010 they stopped making solvent-based adhesives.

Bona water-based finishes have far less impact on the environment compared to solvent products and even in comparison to some other water-based finishes.  More recently Bona made further changes to products across their finishes and adhesives ranges to meet the requirements of the German DIBt standard which controls emissions and ensures good indoor air quality.    All Bona finishes contain less than 100 grams per litre or 9.9% - well within the EU Standard of 140g / Lt and Green Star requirements.
