Started to apply Bona HD traffic on my newly installed Bar top and floor. Wood is Brazilian black walnut. Bar top was stained, floor was left natural. Applied 2 coats of Basic Coatings Hydroline sealer, waited 24 hrs, then started with Bona HD Traffic (Bar top first). Followed directions exactly on label. Immediately after pouring out onto bar the finish started to coagulate into goopy balls (I have pictures). I immediately stopped (although the bartop will need to be resanded). Thank goodness I didn't start on the floor. Any idea what is going on? Is the material old stock or not compatible with the sealer?

Cpl of things... You must immediately shake the bona HD after pouring in the hardener. Dump in as quick as possible then shake.
Did you activate whole jug or just a portion ? It sounds too me like too much hardener put into jug.
1 hardener to 1 gallon..I'm sure you know this but mistakes can happen.
Your Braz walnut , is that Ipe ? Tough stuff to work with, an excellent outdoor building product.
Generally I didnt think you would stain as it has a naturally occurring beautiful color.
Whatever the case the Traffic should be a great product for you.
You also may have been right about the product being older stock? If so strain it into a clean jug and see what finish looks like before hardener is added.
