How to apply SheenPlus to flooringUpdated 6 months ago

Consult the TDS prior to using SheenPlus.

Materials needed

  1. SheenPlus
  2. Paint can opener
  3. Red buffer pads
  4. White buffer pads
  5. Supply of clean terry cloths/towel
  6. Nitrile gloves
  7. Water-filled metal can with a lid for safe disposal of oil-contaminated rags and pads.

Application process


On unfinished wood surfaces: 

  • First, apply Oil Plus 2C to the wooden surface. Refer to the Oil Plus 2C technical data sheet for application instructions. After a drying time of at least 24 hours, the SheenPlus can be applied. 

On a surface that has previously been finished with Oil Plus 2C: 

  • First renovate the surface with Oil Plus 2C, in the color with which the surface was originally finished. Refer to the TDS for Oil Plus 2C renovation guidelines listed under Instructions Repair and Renovation. After a drying time of 24 - 36 hours, SheenPlus can be applied. 


  1. Let the Oil Plus 2C dry for at least 24 - 36 hours. 
  2. Thoroughly mix the two SheenPlus components together for 1 to 2 minutes, ensuring a ratio of approximately 3 units A to 1 unit B. 
  3.  Apply a small amount of SheenPlus using a floor buffer with a red buffer pad. Spread the product so that no irregularities can be seen in the treated area. Preferably treat areas of 20 to 40 SF (areas that are not too wide). Make sure you can easily treat the area with the floor buffer without stepping in wet product. 
  4. Within 15 minutes, finish this area with a white buffer pad until the surface is completely even and rubbed dry. 
  5. To complete the entire floor, repeat steps 3 and 4.  
  6. Let dry for at least 24 hours before carefully walking on the surface. To ensure effective drying and curing, it is important to maintain proper ventilation and temperature. Full curing takes place in 7 days. 

Clean up
