Our “all-purpose oil”. KREIDEZEIT Floor Hard Oil is a universal wood oil for indoor use. Hard-wearing protection for floors, countertops, tables, furniture, beams, window interiors, cladding and much more.
Warning! There is a risk of self-ignition when working materials are soaked with product.
Application Shake product briefly before application. Apply two coats of KREIDEZEIT Floor Hard Oil, allowing the first coat to dry before applying the second. The substrate may require sanding before applying the second coat. If using containers with different batch numbers, mix and stir together prior to application. The product must not be poured onto surfaces! Clean and dust down untreated substrates. KREIDEZEIT Floor Hard Oil is ready for application undiluted.
1. Initial sanding Sand the wood (grit P80-100), rounding the edges. Do not use a finer sandpaper as this will make the wood too dense and unable to absorb enough oil. New, smooth, planed or finely pre-sanded wood should be rough sanded to ensure the oil can be absorbed. Dust down thoroughly after sanding.
2. First coat a) Manual application: Apply KREIDEZEIT Floor Hard Oil evenly with a brush, short-pile roller, cloth or sponge. After 10-20 minutes, thoroughly wipe the entire treated area with a dry, lint-free cloth until the surface has a uniform satin appearance. b) Machine application: Apply KREIDEZEIT Floor Hard Oil with a short-pile roller. After 10-20 minutes, thoroughly wipe the entire treated area with a soft pad until the surface has a uniform satin appearance. Change pad promptly once it becomes saturated. Ensure that all unabsorbed oil has been completely removed, as otherwise shiny or sticky patches may remain. KREIDEZEIT Floor Hard Oil must fully penetrate into the wood. It must not form a layer on the wood.
3. Re-sanding between coats (optional) Re-sanding between coats is only required if the surface has dried rough, for example if wood fibres have dried proud of the surface. Use sand paper (grit P100-120) in the direction of the fibre. Dust down thoroughly after sanding.
5. Wax treatment Oiled floors generally do not require wax treatment. To improve the gloss, you can finish with KREIDEZEIT Carnauba Wax Emulsion after at least 48 hours. To do this, dilute 1 part emulsion with 2 parts water. Apply evenly and thinly, allow to dry and polish as needed.
Drying Time Dry and recoatable at 20°C and 60% relative humidity after approx. 24 hours (48 hours for substrates containing tannin, e.g. oak, etc.). High humidity, cold temperatures and substrates containing tannin significantly extend the drying time. Hardened after approx. 4 weeks. Use the surface gently and protect from water during this time.
Suitable Tools Paint brush / flat brush, Short-pile roller (Magic felt, art. 6517). Lint-free cloth, solvent-resistant synthetic sponges. For larger areas: Floor machines with soft pads. Do not apply product with surface/ground scraper.
Note Due to the content of natural oils, a yellowing occurs on surfaces with low exposure to light. A typical odour is emitted when natural oils dry; this disappears with time. Failure to remove iron filings on the surface can cause discolouration when applying the product. Not recommended for use on inside surfaces of cupboards; these are best treated with Shellac Varnish, Carnauba Wax Emulsion or Corfu Soap.
This product can be tinted with any KREIDEZEIT Pigment.
Start by stirring the pigments into a small amount of the product until it forms a lump-free paste, and then stir into the main mixture. Instruction
The pigments can be mixed freely with each other. Colour samples are available from our retailers. Alternatively, the product can be tinted in any ratio with Stand Oil Paint -half rich-.
