With the same formula that created the Blanchon Hard Waxoil, the Blanchon Hard Waxoil Colours has been specifically designed to offer a much broader range of styles from your hard waxoil.
The Hard Waxoil’s finish is designed to enhance the authentic elegance of all woodwork and wood species. This includes oak flooring, traditional parquet floors, pine floors, exotic wood, stairs, wood panelling, furniture, solid wood items, preoiled wood floors, cork floors, worktops, etc.
Blanchon Hard Waxoil Colours is available in the following finishes; Weathered Wood, Old White, Rough Timber, White, White Grey, Light Grey, Metallic Grey, Graphite, Black, Light Oak, Golden Oak, Wild Cherry, Walnut and Smoked Oak.
FIRST APPLICATION: 20 to 25 sqm per litre per coat.
MAINTENANCE: 20 to 35 sqm per litre per coat
NO MIXING REQUIRED: Blanchon Hard Waxoil is ready to use.
Shake well before use.
Do not dilute Blanchon Hard Waxoil
Do not apply when the temperature is below 12°C. Only use in well ventilated areas. Do not leave plants and aquariums in contact with the solvent vapours.
Hard Waxoil should always be applied in the direction of the wood grain with a silk brush, graining brush, smooth spatula (not toothed) or short-haired roller. Wipe very regularly as you apply with a clean cotton cloth (in a circular movement), a buffing machine fitted with a soft beige or white pad, or a polishing machine fitted with soft brushes. To make buffing easier, only work on one small area at a time.
The coat applied should be very thin, around 20 to 25 sqm per litre per coat.
Buffing (with a cotton cloth, buffing machine) as you apply ensures an attractive, even finish. The wood is deeply penetrated without excess surface residue.
Wait 8 to 12 hours before applying the second coat, and proceed as for the first coat.
To maximise protection, it is possible to apply one final coat of Hard Waxoil natural or satin (colourless) over two coats of coloured Hard Waxoil.
Remove dust regularly from waxed/oiled wood surfaces using a brush or vacuum cleaner.
Stains and marks can be easily removed with a neutral detergent (using damp mops or cloths, never soaking wet ones).
Important: Wait 15 days before the first maintenance treatment to allow hard Waxoil to fully cure.
Wipe with a damp mop using diluted Blanchon Natural Soap for oiled wood floors (250 ml to 10 litres of water).
Work on one area at a time, rinsing the micro-fibre mop or cloth regularly: it should always be well wrung out to avoid getting the wood floor too wet.
Frequency: from once a week on light-traffic floors to daily cleaning on heavy-traffic floors. Natural Soap For Oiled Wood Floors, which is 100% natural, is ideal for cleaning waxed/oiled wood floors throughly and boosting their protection.
After ensuring the waxed/oiled floor is clean and dust free, spray Maintenance Oil (using a hand sprayer) and wipe with a clean, dry cotton cloth to obtain a matt finish.
This operation is quicker and easier with a buffing machine fitted with a beige pad (if the floor is very soiled, a red pad may be used to boost the mechanical cleaning) or a polishing machine with 3 revolving brushes. This is then similar to a spray method: polishing is quicker and mechanical cleaning more effective.
Full use of the area: 4 to 8 hours after polishing.
Frequency: When the waxed/oiled wood floor loses its beautiful finish, generally once of twice a month.
On high-traffic wood floors, regular maintenance using the spray method may be boosted by applying a general coat of Hard Waxoil followed by careful polishing, either with a buffing machine or manually.
The more Maintenance Oil is used, the easier maintenance becomes.
