Master Color Oil provides color and protection in one product. The oil penetrates the wood and ensures a hardwearing surface with high resistance to water and dirt. It is perfect for indoor use on all unfinished, new or newly-sanded surfaces in all wood species.
Product, room and floor temperature must be between 59-86°F. Wood humidity must not exceed 12%. Ensure good ventilation during application and when drying. The wood must be newly sanded, use grit 100-120 for the final sanding. Vacuum thoroughly. Clean the wood with WOCA Intensive Wood Cleaner and leave it to dry for at least 8 hours before applying the oil.
Thoroughly shake the container of Master Color Oil, both before and during use. Containers with different batch numbers should be mixed to avoid colour mismatch.
Apply the oil using a short-bristled paint roller (4-6 mm) in an even coat. Work in small areas of no more than 100 sq.ft. at a time.
Leave the oil to soak in for 10-20 min. If the oil soaks quickly into the wood, apply more oil.
Polish the oil into the wood until the surface appears saturated. Use a buffing machine with a red pad for large areas and a polishing cloth/pad manually for small areas.
Remove excess oil with dry, lint-free cotton cloths or pads until the surface no longer appears wet. Continue until the whole area has been polished and excess oil has been thoroughly removed.
To ensure a good saturation the surface should be re-polished with 3 fl.oz. Master Color Oil per 100 sq.ft. within 6-12 hours after the first application. The oil should be polished thoroughly, as described in step 4+5.
The surface can be used with caution after 12-24 hours and is fully hardened after 5-7 days at 68°F and 55% humidity, after which rugs etc. can be placed on the floor.
Regular cleaning: WOCA Natural Soap or WOCA Oil Refreshing Soap. Re-oil the surface with WOCA Maintenance Oil or Maintenance Gel as required. Please note: Do not expose the surface to water or clean it for the first 7 days while the oil is hardening.
