DESCRIPTION: These penetrating and finishing oils are
designed to deepen and enhance the natural grain of timber. They
give a matt or satin finish and can be used on any interior wooden
surface which is not subjected to heavy wear. Bio Natural Wood Oil
can be used as complete finishes, or in conjunction with other Bio
products (see below). Wood Oil is also known as tongue oil or china
wood oil. These oils should not be used on alkaline surfaces,
plaster, concrete or fibro-cement. If considering use on other
materials (such as brick, ceramic or cork), test-strips should be
made to assess suitability.
PREPARATION: Surfaces should be well sanded, dry and
cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner.
Do not apply coatings to unseasoned or wet timber. Imperfect coats
may require complete stripping before applying BIO products. Round
off sharp edges. It is also good practice to prime back surfaces.
Hardwoods and other timbers rich in natural oils, waxes, acids and
terpenes should be degreased using BIO Thinner because these
substances may mix with the oils and prolong its drying time.
APPLICATION: Brush, dip or spray BIO Oils working them
well into the grain. Do not apply more oil than the surface can
absorb. Maintain a wet edge when painting. Remove excess oil with a
dry, lint free cloth after approx. 15-30 minutes. Test the
absorbency of the surface before application: for very absorbent
timber, work in small areas otherwise the oil might dry before you
are able to wipe off the excess, causing an uneven patchy finish.
Drying time is 24 to 72 hours. Do not use when temperature is below
+10C and/or the relative humidity is above 80%; e.g. cold damp
conditions, when condensation, rain, dew or frost are likely to
occur or hot days, direct sunlight or hot surfaces. BIO OILS may
penetrate timber pores more easily if warmed to 60 +C. For matt
finish apply one coat, for satin finish apply three coats. Repair
and refinish by applying additional coats. Provide adequate
ventilation during application and drying.
