What Is Blanchon Hard Waxoil?

23rd Jul 2015

When purchasing oak flooring, one aspect you will no doubt discuss is the oak floor finish. One of the main products which we recommend is the Blanchon Hard Waxoil. So what exactly is Blanchon Hard Waxoil?

Blanchon have been manufactures of floor finishes, oils dyes and waxes for over 200 years. Their products have been used to treat wooden floors in places such as the palace at Versailles and Seoul airport. The Blanchon Hard Waxoil is designed to enhance the authentic elegance of all wood work and wood species such as oak flooring.


As standard, the Blanchon Hard Waxoil is available in either a Natural Ultra Matt, Natural Matt or Natural Satin finish. These will leave your unfinished European oak flooring with a very natural, warm, honey golden colour.

If you require something a bit different to the standard finishes, there are a number of Blanchon Hard Waxoil - Colours available. This ensures whether you require something lighter or darker, there is a finish available. A complete rundown of the various finishes from the hard wax oil range can be seen by clicking here.


For application of the Blanchon Hard Waxoil, begin by shaking the can well before use. The oil should always be applied in the direction of the wood grain with a silk brush, graining brush, smooth spatial (not toothed) or short-haired roller. Excess should be wiped away regularly. At least 3-5 hours should be left before applying the second coat, which can be applied as before.

Hard Waxoil is very easy to clean and maintain. Dust can be swept away, whilst spillages can often be wiped clean. The use of the Blanchon Natural Soap For Oiled Floors, helps to preserve the life of the finish.
