DESCRIPTION: Penetrating oil for priming all absorbent
interior surfaces, especially new wood, cork and unglazed stone
tiles. Very suitable as a preliminary treatment for waxed,
varnished or oiled finishes. For final oiled finish use Bio Natural
Wood Oil or Bio Teak Oil.
PREPARATION: Do not apply coatings to unseasoned or wet
timber. Wood should be well sanded, dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy
and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner. Round off sharp edges. It
is also good practice to prime back surfaces. Hardwoods and timbers
rich in natural oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be degreased
using Bio Thinner, because these substances may mix with the
varnish and prolong its drying time. Let dry for 24 hours.
Imperfect coats may require complete stripping before applying BIO
APPLICATION: Brush thinly and evenly, working varnish
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.
Low temperature and humid conditions prolong the drying time. Do
not paint below +10C and or above 80% humidity, in cold damp
conditions, when condensation, rain, dew or frost are likely to
occur or hot days, direct sunlight and hot surfaces. Provide
adequate ventilation during application and drying. Reaches maximum
durability after 21 days.
VARIATION OF USES:
DRYING: Can be sanded after 24 hours, after which time
treatment can continue. However, the oil takes up to 72 hours to
COVERAGE: 1 Litre covers approx. 10-12 sqm. Note:
Coverage varies greatly with the absorbency of the material being
primed. Cross-cut and other open-grained surfaces require
considerably more oil.
CLEANING: Use BIO Thinner.
PACKAGING: 1, 4 and 20 Litres.
INGREDIENTS: Plant oils.
STORAGE: Keep tightly sealed in a cool and dry place.
Surface skin may develop in opened cans.
DISPOSAL: Do not pour left over oil down the drain.

then disposed of via domestic waste collection. Let empty container
dry out as well and dispose via recycling program.
