How to use KUNOS Countertop Oil No. 243

Wooden Surface:
Preparation: Wood must be dry (moisture content below 12 %), solid, able to absorb, clean, free of resin and dust. Brush large-pored wood such as oak, ash, chestnut, elm, mahogany or teak carefully, to clean pore grooves. Sand furniture gradually up to 240 grain, for oak use 180 grain.

Application: Depending on surface requirements and absorbency: Apply 1 to 3 thin coats, until a surface layer has developed. Remove excess oil approximately 3 minutes after applying the first coat with a lint-free cloth, otherwise an uneven shiny surface might develop. Sand with 400 grain between the 1st and 2nd applications. Remove 2nd coat 3 minutes after application, sanding before the application of the 3rd coat is not necessary. Let dry. Remove 3rd coat 3 minutes after application as well. Between the applications of the individual coats, let dry for at least 16 hours.

Care: Maintenance should be carried out according to usage. As a rule 1 — 2 times annually. Prepare the surface with 280 — 320 grain, then rub or polish a thin coat of KUNOS Countertop Oil No. 243. Clean with a damp cloth with TRENA pH-Neutral Cleaner No. 556 diluted in water.

Important tips: Stir thoroughly before use. Remove possible skin formed on surface. Test coat is recommended. The open time during the application can be extended by adding up to 10% of SVALOS Thinner No. 293. On oak and other wood with incompatibilities such as tannic acid or dyes, or on wood that has been sanded, stripped, pre-treated, or stained, discoloration is possible and will show up within one week of application date. Please note that KUNOS No. 243 is not suitable as a sealant on strained wood. For glued crosscut wood, observe a treated test area for two days before completing application, as certain adhesives may dissolve. Adhesives and glues have to be completely dry before treating with KUNOS.
