1 litre of Treatex Hardwax Oil Traditional Clear will cover approximately 20m2 one coat, depending on wood type and application method
If the surface that is to be treated is rough, or a previous surface coating finish is present (varnish, lacquer hard wax oil), sand smooth with 80-120 grit sandpaper before application
Most previously oiled surfaces can be over coated without sanding.
Ensure that the surface is clean, free from dust and dry.
Stir the tin thoroughly before use
It is also recommended that a trial application is done before complete application
When treating oily/dense timbers such as Iroko, Ipe, Teak, Jarrah and Merbau, thin the first coat of Treatex Hardwax Oil Traditional Clear by mixing with around 10% of Treatex Isoparraffin. This will enable the product to properly penetrate into these types of timber.
Using a brush or roller, apply the Treatex Hardwax Oil evenly along the grain of the wood, allowing roughly 30g per m2.
For worktops and doors, particular attention should be payed to the end grain. On end grain the oil should be applied wet on wet until the product is no longer absorbed by the wood.
Allow around 3-6 hours to dry, with good warmth and ventilation.
A second coat should be applied using the same method as before
The oil should then be left to dry thoroughly overnight before the surface is lightly used.
The surface will reach maximum hardness after a further 24 hours
Wooden surfaces should be kept clean as particles of dust or grit could scratch the wood
Any dirt or dust should be regularly removed using a damp cloth or vacuum cleaner
