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 Wood 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 Wood 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 On poorly-absorbent, dense woods (such as oak and larch), apply the first coat with Floor Hard Oil or Hard Oil -solvent-free. On more absorbent, coarser woods (such as pine, spruce and beech), proceed as follows. a) Manual application Apply KREIDEZEIT Wood Hard Oil evenly with a brush, short-pile roller, cloth or sponge. After 5-10 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 Wood Hard Oil with a short-pile roller. After 5-10 minutes, thoroughly and quickly wipe the entire treated area with a soft pad until the surface has a uniform satin appearance. Change pad promptly once it becomes saturated. Long exposure times and working too slowly can cause the pads to bond.
Ensure that all unabsorbed oil has been completely removed, as otherwise shiny or sticky patches may remain. KREIDEZEIT Wood 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.
4. Second coat Repeat as per the first coat.
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 1 part water. Apply evenly and thinly, allow to dry and polish as needed.
Drying time Dust-dry after approx. 8 hours. Dry, sand and re-coat at 20°C and 60% relative humidity after approx. 24 hours (48 hours for substrates containing tannin, 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.
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.
