CeramicStar is a two-component, water-based premium-class hardwood-floor finish based on polyurethane. The product is highly abrasion resistant, universally applicable and has a low viscosity adjustment and can be easily processed. Supported by its ceramic components it provides an outstanding robustness. The product is recommended for fast construction sites because treated floors are quickly usable after 24 h already. Furthermore, the product is well-suited for renovating old floors garning a maximum of safety by blocking old substances in the floor, such as salt. AquaSeal CeramicStar meets the requirements of DIN 51130 with the anti-slip class R9. Giscode: W3/DD+, DIN 51130/DGVU 108-003 / Slip resistance: R9

Degree of gloss: matt, semi-gloss

Special advice: in order to reduce the risk of side bonding, AquaSeal ExoBlocAquaSeal FlexPrimerAquaSeal SpachtelGel or Classic BaseOil or  SolvSeal UniQuickPrimer can be used as primer alternative. The finish is particularly suited for old floor renovation. In case of very dirtied old floors we recommend to do a test area so as to recognize early on the effects of critical problems of the floor.

Application: varnish is mixed shortly before use, 10:1 with AquaSeal Härter (hardener) in the combo can or in the BergerTool MixBox. Mix well right after adding the hardener. Give the mixture 10 min. to rest, so to get the optimum usability. The mixture is good for 2 h (open time); that is though the mixture is liquid for about 1 day, because of declining resistances of the dried finish film, after 2 h it should not be used any more. Mix only as much material as you will need. The mixture releases CO2 – so, to avoid the cans bursting, do not seal them hermetically!

The material is applied in 3 coats by rolled/brushed. Critical wood species such as beech, maple and ash shall not be troweled, do roller them!

Special tips: contrary to conventional solvent-based finishes, AquaSeal CeramicStar finishes should be applied with more liberal coats. The coating should not be excessively spread with the roller. In order to achieve optimum mixing of the hardener, the mixture should be shaken rather than stirred.

Drying: In order to avoid excessive swelling pressure, we recommend to do only one rolled coat of water-borne finish per day, so that the wood has enough time to release the absorbed water. As a rule, the finish itself can be sanded and cautiously walked on for further work after 3-4 h at 23°C/50% rel. humidity. Before the last coat of varnish, it is recommended to perform an intermediate sanding with a 120-grit sieve. Insufficient ventilation, low temperature, different humidity as well as thicker finish coats will considerably delay the drying.

Under standard conditions the finished floor can be put to use after 24 h. Do not cover with carpets or apply care products for 7 days. After complete drying/crystallization of the varnish, Brilliance Everclear wax can be applied.

Consumption: depending on surface and way of work:

  • 1 troweled coat when trowelling between coats: about 30 ml/m2 or about 35 m2/l ;
  • 1 rolled/brushed coat: about 100 ml/m2 or about 10 m2/l.

Storage/transport: Shelf life of original unopened packing min. 12 months (finish) resp. 12 months (hardener) provided that the material is transported and stored at a cool and dry place protected from freezing. Started hardener cans must be hermetically sealed after use.

Store in a dry, well-ventilated place at a temperature between 15 ° C and 25 ° C. Protect from heat and direct sunlight. Keep tightly closed.


Prefinished works-coated wood parquet : AquaSeal CeramicStar adheres well to man prefinished wood parquets, but because of the multitude of these products no conclusive general statements can be made. Generally, individual adherence tests should be conducted with each brand of flooring. In prior tests it has proved well to, prior to lacquering, thoroughly basic-clean the floor with Brilliance Cleaner L94 (wax remover) and thereafter to mop the floor with clear water; after the floor has dried it shall be matt-polished carefully with sieve grid 120.
