Bona launches a highly durable lacquer for an ultra-matte wood experience

Brought to you by Bona

A new addition to the Bona Traffic family of lacquers is Bona Traffic HD Raw—an ultra-matte, highly durable and protective lacquer to create an aesthetically pleasing, ‘untreated’ wood experience that meets contemporary trends and floor owners’ needs.

The sheen on a wooden floor can differ depending on the perspective and viewpoint. When viewed from the other side of the room, even a low-sheen floor could appear glossy when sunlight is shining on the lacquered surface.

“Sheen differences on a floor have to do with the lacquer and its composition. After extensive research by Bona, we finally solved this challenge, delivering a new topcoat with a true raw wood look,” said Thomas Hallberg, Director Product Management Professional EMEA/APAC, Bona AB. “The magic lies in the combination of different features that optimise the performance of the product. Bona Traffic HD Raw has an excellent natural look with great durability in terms of wear, scuff and chemical resistance. Even if the lacquer is almost invisible, it´s there, assuring long-lasting protection of the wood floor.”

Like all Bona Traffic HD products, Bona Traffic HD Raw is a two-component waterborne lacquer that is classed as EC1PLUS—indicating the best in low-emission materials—and GREENGUARD Gold-certified for indoor air quality. The lacquer is low-odour and offers high slip safety, making it ideal for homes with children and pets, with a look that stays consistent in larger areas as well as during the application and drying processes.
