Worktop Oil is designed for untreated or previously oiled/sanded wood surfaces. The oil makes the surface highly water and dirt repellent. Use Worktop Oil, Natural, on both dark and light wood species – such as mahogany, merbau, teak, cherry, ash, oak, beech, maple, birch, pine etc. - to give the wood a mellow, golden colour. Use Worktop Oil, White, to lighten up the wood or give it a whitewashed effect.
Ensure good ventilation at all times during the application and drying time.
If the surface is particularly smooth, sand the surface with sandpaper grit 180.
Make sure the wood is dry and devoid of any dirt or grease. Clean the wood with Wood Cleaner. After cleaning, let the tabletop dry for at least 8 hours.
Stir the oil thoroughly before use.
Use a paintbrush to apply a suitable amount of oil in an even, adequate coat.
Wait approx. 20-30 minutes at 20ºC (68˚F) as the oil penetrates into the wood. If necessary, sand the wood while the surface is still wet with oil. Sand wet in wet lengthwise the wood grain with sandpaper grit 320-400.
Carefully polish the wood using a white polishing pad, which makes the surface more hard-wearing.
Next, wipe off all excess oil using a lint-free cotton cloth. Do not leave any excess oil on the surface.
Repeat the treatment on highly absorbent surfaces.
The oil is thoroughly hardened after 24 hours at 20ºC (68˚F). Do not let the tabletop become wet during the hardening process.
Use Worktop Oil to maintain the tabletop four times a year, or as often as necessary. Before starting the maintenance procedure, clean the worktop using Wood Cleaner, and let the surface dry for at least 8 hours. Follow the procedure in items 2 through 7, but apply only one coat of oil.
