Warning! There is a risk of self-ignition when working materials are soaked with product.
Application Shake product briefly before application. Apply KREIDEZEIT Worktop Oil to untreated wood twice, allowing for drying between coats. The sub-strate 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 Worktop Oil comes ready-to-use and is applied 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 Apply KREIDEZEIT Worktop Oil evenly with a brush, 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 appear-ance.
Ensure that all unabsorbed oil has been completely removed, as otherwise shiny or sticky patches may remain. KREIDEZEIT Worktop 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 Not recommended for countertops.
Drying Time Dry and re-coatable at 20°C and 60% relative hu-midity after approx. 24 hours (48 hours for sub-strates containing tannin, e.g. oak, etc.). High humidity, cold temperatures and substrates containing tannin significantly extend the drying time. Suitable Tools Varnish brushes, solvent-resistant sponges and cotton cloths
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.
