Worktop Oil is an air-hardening oil that penetrates deep into the wood, leaving a tough water and stain resistant surface. The oil highlights the wood’s natural glow and gives the surface a natural, fresh appearance.
It is important that both wood and oil have a temperature of min. 59°F (preferably around 68°F) and air humidity of approx. 50 %. Make sure that the room is well-ventilated for optimal evaporation and drying time. 1. Sand the untreated surface with grit 180. Vacuum clean the surface to remove sanding residue. 2. Thoroughly clean the surface with Intensive Wood Cleaner, mixed 1 part cleaner to 20 parts water. Then wash with clean water. After cleaning, leave the surface to dry for at least 8 hours at 68°F. 3. Mix the oil thoroughly.
Sand the surface with grit 180 sandpaper. Vacuum clean the surface to remove sanding residue.
Thoroughly clean the surface with WOCA Intensive Wood Cleaner, mixed 1 part cleaner to 20 parts water. After cleaning, leave the work surface to dry for at least 8 hours at 68°F.
Mix the oil thoroughly.
Use a paintbrush to distribute an appropriate amount of oil in an even, covering coat. If possible, the reverse side of the work surface should also be given a coat of oil.
Wait approx. 30 minutes at 68°F, while the oil soaks into the wood. Apply more oil if dry areas appear.
Polish with the red or white WOCA hand scrubber along the direction of the wood grain. This will make the surface more durable.
Then wipe off all excess oil with a lint-free cotton cloth. No excess oil should remain on the surface.
Allow the surface to rest for an hour and repeat steps 3 to 7.
The surface should be treated two or three times before use. For the final treatment sand in wet oil with grain 280-400 sandpaper, before wiping off with a lint-free cotton cloth.
The oiled surface can be used after 24 hours at 20 degrees. During this period, the surface must not come into contact with water. The oil does not harden completely until after about a week. Therefore, treat with care during this period. Any spilled liquids should be wiped up immediately.
Cleaning: For daily cleaning, use WOCA Natural Soap or WOCA Natural Soap on spray.
Maintenance: Maintain the work surface with oil as required (steps 2-7). For a superior result, use Worktop Oil or WOCA Maintenance Gel. For a more thorough restoration, follow the entire procedure, steps 1-10.
