How do I apply LobA Life, single component varnish?

LOBA Life is a waterborne 1-component finish for wooden floors. Full product information can be found here, but for your convenience, please be advised as follows:

  • We recommend firstly applying a prime coat – EasyPrime or PrimaSeal Plus
  • The surface must be sanded properly, wood moisture content max. 12%.
  • The floor must be dry and free from any old coatings, oil, grease, wax, silicone, sanding dust and other contaminants.
  • Room temperature +15°C to +25°C, relative humidity 40% to 75%, material temperature +18°C to +25°C.
  • Ensure working areas are adequately ventilated.
  • Transfer material to a LOBA Varnish Bucket before applying.
  • Shake the contents well.
  • Observe the general and, if available, the product-specific health and safety instructions. More specific information relating to GISCODE can be found in the usage instructions, which are available at
  • The product is supplied ready for use and must not be diluted!


Application tool/application rate

  • LOBA roller Deluxe 120 / 100-120 ml(g)/m² = 8-10m²/l(kg)
  • LOBA roller Microfaser 100-120 / 80-100 ml(g)/m² = 10-12m²/l(kg)


Intermediate sanding

  • Able to recoat without intermediate sanding within the first 24 hours. After this time, an intermediate sanding is necessary. An intermediate sanding before the last application will achieve an even finish. Use LOBA Perforated Pad P120 or finer, alternatively Sanding Net P120 or finer. Carefully remove dust before overcoating.


Drying time LOBA Life

  • Earliest possible recoating after 4-6 hours.
  • Careful use possible after 4-6 hours.
  • Earliest possible intermediate sanding after 8-10 hours.
  • Light use after 24 hours.
  • Full use and covering possible after 5 days.
